Reviews

"One of the most optimistic books about the Internet I've ever read because it dares to hope for better ... A blisteringly good, urgent, essential read" -- Zadie Smith
"In every chapter there is a principle so elegant, so neat, sometimes even so beautiful, that what is billed as straight polemic becomes something much more profound" -- Zoe Williams * Guardian *
"Indispensable. Everyone who wants to understand the digital world, its pitfalls and possibilities should read this book - now" -- Matthew d'Ancona, author of Post-Truth
"A witty and fiercely intelligent attack on the ethics and business model of big tech and a romping read to boot. Lanier is a modern day Luther, calling for a digital reformation and nailing his theses to the door" -- Tom Hodgkinson, The Idler
"An eloquence that is hard to argue against ... Every time you log on, you are adding to a fire that is burning your house down" -- Danny Fortson * Sunday Times *
"Everything is here, from status anxiety, to wage degradation, to the death of context ... This is Lanier at his best, taking the language of the internet and turning it back on itself" -- Hugo Rifkind * The Times *
"A short, snappy, impassioned takedown of the surveillance capitalism operated by the giant Silicon Valley corporations" * Financial Times *
"Informed, heartfelt and often entertaining ... a timely reminder that even if we can't bring ourselves to leave social media altogether, we should always think critically about how it works" -- Ian Critchley * Sunday Times *
"A rollicking call to arms" * Emerald Street *
"in every chapter there is a principle so elegant, so neat, sometimes even so beautiful, that what is billed as straight polemic becomes something much more profound" -- Zoe Williams * Guardian *
"Ten Arguments is more compelling than the many similar treatises on social media published since 2016 because of Lanier's intimate knowledge of the private sector" -- Nina Jankowicz * New Scientist *
"- [A] powerful book... Lanier's ten arguments are strong and convincing, and become more so as they accumulate" -- Marcus Berkmann * Daily Mail *
"Written in Lanier's engaging conversational style... [Ten Arguments] hits all ten nails bang on the head" -- Jonathan Wilson * Engineering & Technology *
"[Lanier's] argument...is a profound one... I heeded his plea and deleted my account" -- Franklin Foer * Scotsman *
"Incredibly accessible. The conversational tone makes for light reading, yet it's also a hard-hitting and well-constructed polemic" -- Jamie Bartlett * Spectator *
