"Sherry Turkle is a singular voice in the discourse around technology." --Jonathan Franzen in The New York Times
"This is her third book on the subject. Her general thesis (that human values and humane activities are threatened by our gadgets) is consistent. What changes is the focus. This time she finds that it is real face-to-face conversation that is vanishing like mist on the bright morning of Silicon Valley's ascendancy." --The Times
