Product description

Review

"No matter which side you're on in the debate over digital technology, there's something to cheer you in The Revenge of Analog."--Scott Timberg, New York Times Book Review


"Here is a compulsively readable book after a Luddite's heart.... Sax isn't preaching a return to the pre-Industrial Age, but neither is he embracing the robot overlords. He thoughtfully, wisely, and honestly points out how analog experiences enhance digital creativity and how humans benefit from what both have to offer. Essential reading."--Booklist, Starred Review


"Sax's message is that digital technology has certainly made life easier, but the analog technologies of old can make life more rich and substantial. This book has a calming effect, telling readers, one analog page at a time, that tangible goods, in all their reassuring solidity, are back and are not going anywhere."--Publishers Weekly


"The more advanced our digital technologies, the more we come to realize that reality rules. David Sax reassures us surviving members of team human that material existence is alive and well, and makes a compelling case for the reclamation of terra firma and all that comes with it."--Douglas Rushkoff, author of Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus

"Hang on digital mavens, the real world ain't going anywhere. In The Revenge of Analog, David Sax shows the continued importance of the physical stuff to how we live and work today."--Richard Florida, author of Rise of the Creative Class

"We all thought the digital age would be the end of analog media--and we were wrong. In this smart, funny, glorious book, David Sax explains why so many of us still crave the tactile, sensual experience of listening to music on vinyl records and taking notes with pencil and paper. Turn off your electronic devices, find a quiet place, and savor this remarkable book."--Dan Lyons, bestselling author of Disrupted

"The better digital gets, the more important analog becomes. In this fun tour of modern culture, David Sax has collected hundreds of ways that an analog approach can improve our newest inventions. Sax's reporting is eye-opening and mind-changing."--Kevin Kelly, founding executive editor of Wired and author of The Inevitable

"Captivating...Sax provides an insightful and entertaining account of this phenomenon, creating a powerful counternarrative to the techno-utopian belief that we would live in an ever-improving, all-digital world."--Michiko Kakutani, New York Times


"A perky and well-illustrated... look at a discordantly retro cultural trend."--Kirkus Reviews


"David Sax has written a brilliant cri de coeur about the way things used to be, should be, and, increasingly, are becoming once again. The Revenge of Analog reminds us that it wasn't so long ago that records were vinyl, laces were double knotted and the mailbox at the end of the driveway was lovingly banged up. It's a book that brings something even more rare than a perfect song at the perfect moment-hope."--Rich Cohen, cocreator of HBO's Vinyl and author of The Sun & The Moon & The Rolling Stones

Book Description

One of Michiko Kakutani's top ten books of 2016, The Revenge of Analog is the story of the improbable comeback of vinyl records, paper notebooks, retail, and other analog businesses - even as Silicon Valley dominates the headlines -and what it says about us.
