Praise

“Andrew Keen is a brilliant, witty, classically educated technoscold—and thank goodness. The world needs an intellectual Goliath to slay Web 2.0’s army of Davids.” —Jonathan Last, online editor, Weekly Standard, on Cult of the Amateur

“Andrew Keen has found the off switch for Silicon Valley’s reality distortion field. With a cold eye and a cutting wit, he reveals the grandiose claims of our new digital plutocrats to be little more than self-serving cant. Digital Vertigo provides a timely and welcome reminder that having substance is more important than being transparent.” —Nicholas Carr, author of The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains, on Digital Vertigo

“Unlike most commentators, Andrew Keen observes the Internet as if from a distance. Digital Vertigo may be one of the few books on the subject that, twenty years from now, will be seen to have got it right. Neither blinkered advocate nor hardened cynic, he identifies the good and the bad with a rare human and historical perspective.” —Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO, WPP, on Digital Vertigo

“Page after page of really interesting insight and research. I look forward to the much-needed debate about the problems that Keen articulates—which can’t be lightly dismissed.” —Larry Sanger, cofounder of Wikipedia and founder of Citizendium, on Cult of the Amateur
