Review

"Sweeping, startling...provocative." -- Tom Vanderbilt, I.D. Magazine

"ME++ is an exhilarating read, jam-packed with interesting facts, colorful phrases, imagery and sage insights." -- Joanne Baker, Nature

"Sweeping, startling... provocative." < br />

""ME++" is an exhilarating read, jam-packed with interesting facts, colorful phrases, imagery and sage insights." < br />

"Me++ is an essential read for anyone trying to make sense of the bewildering advances that are transforming our world." < br />

"Mitchell's book, Me++ is an attempt to fill in the gaps, to understand the effects of all this on our already media-savvy selves when digital access to the web and to each other is now so commonplace as to have become a utility like gas or water." < br />

..."Mitchell floats clearly conveyed assertions on a stream of technological and historical detail."-- Andrea Oppenheimer Dean, "Architectural Record"

-- Andrea Oppenheimer Dean, "Architectural Record"

--Mark C. Taylor, Columbia University and Williams College

--Professor Sir Peter Hall, Director, Institute of Community Studies, Bartlett Professor of Planning, University College London

--N. Katherine Hayles, Hillis Professor of Literature, English Department and Design/Media Arts, University of California, Los Angeles

" Sweeping, startling... provocative." -- Tom Vanderbilt, "I.D. Magazine"

" Mitchell's approach is hopeful (rather than hype-ful)..." -- Jim McClellan, "The Guardian"

" MIT planning professor William Mitchell peers into the gloom better than almost anyone else." -- "APA"

" This book is a total gas to read and the very definition of 'thought-provoking.'" -- Bruce Sterling, "Metropolis"

" "Me++" is an exhilarating read, jam-packed with interesting facts, colorful phrases, imagery and sage insights." -- Joanne Baker, "Nature"

" ...Mitchell floats clearly conveyed assertions on a stream of technological and historical detail." -- Andrea Oppenheimer Dean, "Architectural Record"

" "Me++" is an essential read for anyone trying to make sense of the bewildering advances that are transforming our world." -- Richard Mateosian, "IEEE Micro"

" An exhilarating, but also sometimes terrifying, account of how humanity is being reshaped by its new machines. This is the best tour guide yet written to the brave new world of the digital present." --Mike Davis, author of "Dead Cities"

" Mitchell's book, "Me++" is an attempt to fill in the gaps, to understand the effects of all this on our already media-savvy selves when digital access to the web and to each other is now so commonplace as to have become a utility like gas or water." -- "Financial Times"

" William Mitchell has a rare understanding of the ways in which emerging network culture is changing the social, political, and economic fabric as well as transforming the architecture of cities and the subjects who inhabit them. Savvy, insightful and provocative, "Me++" is required reading for anyone baffled by the present and concerned about the future." --Mark C. Taylor, Columbia University and Williams College

" Mitchell has done it again! This concluding volume of the 'Mitchell trilogy' is at least as disturbingly insightful, as stylistically scintillating, as its predecessors. If you really want to understand how profoundly our world is being transformed by networked communications, read "Me++" now." --Professor Sir Peter Hall, Director, Institute of Community Studies, Bartlett Professor of Planning, University College London

" Witty, urbane, and informed by a remarkably wide range of reference, "Me++" surveys the ways in which digital technologies are transforming our world and ourselves. I cannot think of a better guide to these coming changes than William Mitchell. He is able to see the future without losing sight of the past, and he embodies the technologically savvy yet still deeply humanistic perspective we need to understand and evaluate where our technologies are leading us--and where we should be leading them." --N. Katherine Hayles, Hillis Professor of Literature, English Department and Design/Media Arts, University of California, Los Angeles
