Reviews

What an amazing piece of work this is. Ground-breaking, thought-provoking and highly accessible. Everyone should read it. This is where we’re going. The dark, scary, exciting song of our age. 100 out of 100
*IRVINE WELSH*

An important new book ... that describes what is happening in terms of an epochal, once-in-a-millennium shift … in Varoufakis's telling, this isn't just new technology. This is the world grappling with an entirely new economic system and therefore political power
*Observer*

Arresting … an ambitious thinker and a lively writer … Varoufakis is right that we are in thrall to digital platforms, who hold our data hostage and prevent us from switching to “a competing cloud fief”
*The Times*

Varoufakis is a remarkable combination of analyst and dreamer… as always, Varoufakis makes his readers think… an important achievement
*Financial Times, *Books of the Year**

In his characteristically enthralling style, Varoufakis guides the reader through some of the most significant trends in the modern economy, showing clearly how the big tech giants have built an economy that works for them - and how everyone else can take power back
*GRACE BLAKELEY*

A book for anybody who wants to understand the mess we're in - and since we're all in this mess, that makes it a book for everybody
*SLAVOJ ZIZEK*

With superb storytelling, Varoufakis shows how capitalism has eaten itself alive, mutating into an entirely different and more dangerous beast, and calls on us to free ourselves from digital serfdom
*BRETT SCOTT, author of Cloudmoney*

Provocative and accessible, this is sure to be a key touchstone in debates about the future of the global economy
*NICK SRNICEK, co-author of Inventing the Future*

Compulsive and necessary reading
*KEN LOACH*

What if capitalism died and no one noticed - not even the capitalists? Digital platforms usurped capitalism and installed something far worse. This book is an urgent demand to seize the means of computation
*CORY DOCTOROW*

An incisive critique
*Guardian*
