Product description

Review

Far more ambitious than its title might suggest . . . Selfie illuminates much of what feels peculiar about the world in 2017 . . . Storr has put in a formidable amount of work, he is irascibly good company, and he has something approaching genius for marshalling his material . . . This could be a pessimistic book. In fact, its insights are timely and welcome (Richard Godwin Sunday Times)

As entertaining as it is provocative and disquieting . . . His breezy prose is bedded down in intensive research, much of it immersive . . . his closing thoughts can’t help but be comforting (Mail on Sunday)

Storr has done huge amounts of research for this book . . . he conveys it with a gifted lightness of touch that is wry and funny (his investigative mode has been compared to those of Jon Ronson and Louis Theroux, with which I wouldn’t disagree) . . . entertaining . . . fascinating (The Times)

Thoughtful and engaging . . . wonderfully funny . . . Storr’s cultural history is fascinating (Guardian)

An ambitious argument . . . Storr is an electrifying analyst of internet culture, documenting the rise of connectivity in prose that crackles with the energy of the early 21st century . . . an excellent antidote to time-wasting on social media (Financial Times)

Storr is a magnificent reporter in the mould of Jon Ronson or Louis Theroux . . . Selfie is profound, uncomfortable, joyful, frustrating, fascinating, fragmented, inspired, heartbreaking, and occasionally riven with internal contradictions. Just like a person, really. (Helen Lewis New Statesman)

Brilliant . . . There aren’t many authors who can range so confidently across disciplines and, if you go with the flow, you’ll encounter some fascinating nuggets along the way . . . inspiring (Rohan Silva Evening Standard)

This book is IMMENSE; like reading an Adam Curtis documentary (Stuart Heritage)

Compelling, terrifying and a total must-read . . . Selfie is a fascinating investigation into the intersection of history, psychology, culture and the economy, and how our brains, our egos – and our constructed sense of self – are products of these interconnecting spaces . . . Reading Selfie is like seeing links light up on a switchboard. Everything is connected; everything makes sense. Yet the most incredible thing about Storr’s book is how it stays with you long after you've read it . . . In both an equally troubling and comforting way, Selfie’s insights can’t been unseen’ (Marisa Bate The Pool)

This book is fascinating, illuminating, terrifying and reaffirming . . . As a mum of three, it’s a must-read (Davina McCall)

Book Description

Selfie explains how the West became self-obsessed and reveals the danger of this modern obsession – a ‘fascinating’ (Guardian), ‘brilliant’ (Independent) and ‘electrifying’ (Financial Times) book.
