Reviews

"The New York Times Book Review"
[A] judicious and insightful book on human and machine intelligence.
Maria Popova, "Brain Pickings"
Clive Thompson one of the finest technology writers I know makes a powerful and rigorously thought out counterpoint Thompson is nothing if not a dimensional thinker with extraordinary sensitivity to the complexities of cultural phenomena. Rather than revisiting painfully familiar and trite-by-overuse notions like distraction and information overload, he examines the deeper dynamics of how these new tools are affecting the way we make sense of the world and of ourselves. "Smarter Than You Think" is excellent and necessary in its entirety.
"New York Magazine"
"It s straw men everywhere in this debate. Mercifully, Thompson always works from data, not straw."
"Los Angeles Times"
Thompson a lively thinker is well-versed in media and technological history, revisiting some of the field's most valuable case studies His intellectual posture is one of informed optimism.
"Kirkus Reviews: "
A well-framed celebration of how the digital world will make us bigger, rather than diminish us.

Chris Anderson, "New York Times"bestselling author of"Makers," "Free," and"The Long Tail"

Jane McGonigal, Ph.D., Author of"Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World"
