Reviews

  • "The leading thinker about technology’s corrupting influence on our collective psyche."

    Newsweek
  • "An elegant, thoughtful book . . . beautifully expresses the importance and experience of liberation from the battery-hen life of constant connection and crowds."

    Daily Mail
  • "A compelling study of the subtle ways in which modern life and technologies have transformed our behaviour and sense of self . . . The strength of Harris’s argument lies in his showing how seemingly harmless new technologies insidiously influence our ways of being . . . Harris proposes ways in which we can discover ourselves within an increasingly digitally connected world."

    Times Literary Supplement
  • "I came away from this book a better human being. Michael Harris’s take on existence is calm, unique, and makes one's soul feel good yet never once does he rely on feel-good techniques."

    Douglas Coupland
  • "A timely, eloquent provocation to daydream and wander."

    Nathan Filer, author of THE SHOCK OF THE FALL
