Alone Together by Sherry Turkle
Alone Together by Sherry Turkle
A refreshing antidote to the slack-jawed utopianism of so much that is written about the Web and its impact on our lives. Unlike the droves of vacuous cheerleaders for the 'always on' culture. Turkle draws on many years of scrupulously conducted research, and it is fascinating to see how her earlier, much more positive views have been modified to reflect her findings. The fact that she also includes elements of personal anecdote from her own life adds greatly to the book's readability, and to the power of its message.
