By William Powers

“A fantastic and considerate guide for the net age.” —Bob Woodward

“Incisive ... fresh ... Compelling.” —Publishers Weekly

A crisp, passionately argued solution to the query that everybody who’s grown depending on electronic units is calling: Where’s the remainder of my existence? Hamlet’s BlackBerry demanding situations the commonly held assumption that the extra we attach via expertise, the higher. It’s time to strike a brand new stability, William Powers argues, and become aware of why it is also vital to disconnect. half memoir, half highbrow trip, the booklet attracts at the technological previous and nice thinkers similar to Shakespeare and Thoreau. “Connectedness” has been thought of from an organizational and monetary standpoint—from Here Comes Everybody to Wikinomics—but Powers examines it on a deep interpersonal, mental, and emotional point. Readers of Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point and Outliers will savour Hamlet’s BlackBerry.
