Reviews

A superb book by one of the world's leading experts on the digital revolution... Bartlett finishes by offering us "20 Ideas to Save Democracy". These thoughtful pointers ... provide both invaluable food for thought and a fitting end to an outstanding book -- David Patrikarakos * Literary Review *
There are thousands of books about the internet and its impact on society, but this is the only one you really need... I can't think of a more important book right now -- Iain Macwhirter * Herald *
The People Vs Tech is a vital guide and a call addressed to those who are unwilling to play the part of the hapless shipowner in the coming war for our minds and democracy itself -- Yiannis Baboulias * Spectator *
A timely new book by Jamie Bartlett of Demos, The People Vs Tech, spells out why it's vital that politicians seize this moment to reform our attitudes to technology -- Helen Lewis * New Statesman *
The People Vs Tech is an erudite book that sheds light on the unwanted social costs of the big tech revolution. An essential read for pretty much anyone in the world of politics -- Sam Bright * Progress *
Highly readable... [Bartlett] is surely right to argue that our futures will be shaped by how the winners and losers respond to the changes unleashed by technology, as much as by the technology itself -- John Thornhill * Financial Times *
Bartlett effectively manages to condense the political challenges of technology into his six-pillar framework. This book can therefore serve as both a foundational introduction to the current technological and political landscape, whilst also providing much-needed clarity to even the seasoned reader of such issues... When it comes to rapidly-scaling technology companies, society must now ask the right questions - and Bartlett's book is a strong place to start. -- Kevin Seidler * LSE Review of Books *
A fascinating, though sometimes sobering and even frightening, journey * The Quint *
Fascinating -- Amber Rudd MP
Remarkable -- David Anderson QC
