Nicholas Carr is among the most lucid, thoughtful and necessary thinkers alive. The Glass Cage should be required reading for everyone with a phone -- Jonathan Safran Foer
Written with restrained objectivity, The Glass Cage is nevertheless as scary as any sci-fi thriller could be -- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience
Nicholas Carr is the rare thinker who understands that technological progress is both essential and worrying. The Glass Cage is a call for technology that complements our human capabilities, rather than replacing them -- Clay Shirky, author of Here Comes Everybody
A very necessary book, that we ignore at our peril. I read it without putting it down -- Iain McGilchrist, author of The Master and His Emissary
An important book ... deep and valuable * The Times *
