Reviews

"Who Owns the Future? is a deeply original and sometimes startling read. Lanier does not simply question the dominant narrative of our times, but picks it up by the neck and shakes it. A refreshing and important book that will make you see the world differently."--Tim Wu "author of The Master Switch "
"The most important book I read [this year] . . . Provocative, unconventional ideas for ensuring that the inevitable dominance of software in every corner of society will be healthy instead of harmful." --Joe Nocera, The New York Times
"Daringly original . . . Lanier's sharp, accessible style and opinions make Who Owns the Future? terrifically inviting."--Janet Maslin "The New York Times "
"Who Owns the Future? explains what's wrong with our digital economy, and tells us how to fix it. Listen up!"--George Dyson "bestselling author of Turing's Cathedral "
"Lanier's career as a computer scientist is entwined in the central economic story of our time, the rapid advance of computation and networking. . . . [Who Owns the Future?] not only makes a convincing diagnosis of a widespread problem, but also answers a need for moonshot thinking."--The New Republic
