    A timely and powerful must-read on how the big tech companies are damaging our culture – and what we can do to fight their influence

    Four titanic corporations are now the most powerful gatekeepers the world has ever known.
    We shop with Amazon, socialise on Facebook, turn to Apple for entertainment, and rely on Google for information. They have conquered our culture and set us on a path to a world without private contemplation or autonomous thought: a world without mind.

    In this book, Franklin Foer makes a passionate, deeply informed case for the need to restore our inner lives and reclaim our intellectual culture before it is too late. At stake is nothing less than who we are, and what we will become. It is a message that could not be more timely.
