What the experts are saying about Andrew Keen ' s thought-provoking polemic

" My initial reaction to the book was: ' Geez, I have a lot of things to think about now. ' For people immersed in the social communities of Web 2.0, this is bound to be a thought-provoking and sobering book. While I don't agree with everything Keen says, there is 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, co-founder, Wikipedia and founder, Citizendium
" Marvelous and provocative . . . . I think this is a powerful stop and breathe book in the midst of the obsessions and abstraction of folks seeking comfort in Web 2.0. Beautifully written too. "
-- Chris Schroeder, former CEO, WashingtonPost/Newsweek online and CEO, Health Central Network
" Important . . . will spur some very constructive debate. This is a book that can produce positive changes to the current inertia of web 2.0.
-- Martin Green, vice president of community, CNET
" For anyone who thinks that technology alone will make for a better democracy, Andrew Keen will make them think twice. "
-- Andrew Rasiej, founder, Personal Democracy Forum
" Very engaging, and quite controversial and provocative. He doesn ' t hold back anypunches. "
-- Dan Farber, editor-in-chief, ZDNet
" 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, The Weekly Standard
