Survival of the Richest
Escape Fantasies of the Tech Billionaires
by Douglas Rushkoff
Something went horribly wrong with the Internet — this truth became more widely accepted in recent years, and resulted in a movement called Techlash. It is also a topic of a growing number of books, but among those ‘Survival of the Richest’ stands out. I can’t remember any other so eye-opening, so thought-provoking reading in years. The author has both unique access to main players in the big tech scene and an intellectual background that helps to give all that is happening now a deeper context.
If you’re trying to understand what the heck happened with our reality and what you can do to change its disastrous trajectory, it is an essential read. Highly recommended.
Thanks to the publisher, W.W. Norton & Company, and NetGalley for an advanced copy of this book.
