  • "A superb book by one of the world’s leading experts on the digital revolution... Bartlett finishes by offering us “20 Ideas to Save Democracy". These thoughtful pointers ... provide both invaluable food for thought and a fitting end to an outstanding book"

    David Patrikarakos, Literary Review
  • "There are thousands of books about the internet and its impact on society, but this is the only one you really need... I can't think of a more important book right now"

    Iain Macwhirter, Herald
  • "This book could not have come at a better moment, when we are all in the grip of the endlessly unfolding story of Cambridge Analytica... when it comes to the workings of Big Tech, the blogger Jamie Bartlett clearly knows his stuff... He brings home, chillingly, the menacing passivity of algorithms... I enjoyed this book. It made me think... And The People Vs Tech makes clear that there is still time – just – for us to take back control"

    Camilla Cavendish, Sunday Times
  • "The People Vs Tech is a vital guide and a call addressed to those who are unwilling to play the part of the hapless shipowner in the coming war for our minds and democracy itself"

    Yiannis Baboulias, Spectator
  • "A timely new book by Jamie Bartlett of Demos, The People Vs Tech, spells out why it's vital that politicians seize this moment to reform our attitudes to technology"

    Helen Lewis, New Statesman
