A guide to how you are being manipulated
2 May 2017
This book is largely aimed at entrepreneurs and tech people, for obvious reasons.
I however read it as a consumer, who is becoming very mindful of how much tech I consume. So rather than read it as a 'how to' guide, I read it as a 'what to look out for' guide to make sure I use the internet productively.
It didn't disappoint. It was full of data, yet managed to be a very easy read.
The author also spent enough time, for me, discussing the ethics of persuasion for me not to be too concerned that this book will be used for nefarious reasons (though I am sure bad people will be able to use it to create addictive tech).
Either way it's important for the wider world to know these things
