To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Ironically the very real phenomenon the author writes about is evident within the authors own work. He literally can not stay focused while writing this book and routinely goes off on political tangents. Which is annoying because that's not why we bought the book. The author very clearly uses this real phenomenon as a form of confirmation bias to support his own political beliefs, while ignoring actual political facts. It's no surprise that big tech censors one side of the political spectrum drastically more if at all than the other side. And I think we all know which side gets the brunt of it. But yet, the author likes to ignore this fact and claim the opposite with no proof? Also, you loose credibility for any reasonable assumption of intelligence when you slander someone in your book solely because you can't prove their arguments wrong. That I will not stand for. We need more intelligent debates in this world and less panic censorship.
This book started off productive and interesting. About half way, an agenda formed that emphasized her opinions on data. Data was presented in a biased and selective manner after that. I had a lot of hope for this book after reading the trial, but unfortunately I put it down, feeling like it was pushing an agenda just as much as the big tech companies do that she rails on.
This book was very boring, if you are constantly connected to electronic devices and consistently checking your phone, tablet, and computer than you will loose your ability to concentrate. That’s all you need to know about from this book, put down your phone - save $20.00
Watched an interview with Johan and thought the subject was worth my time. His narrative on how technology is powerful is important to talk about in 2022. The first few chapters were a pleasure to read and then he went into full-leftist fashion talking about climate change & government control. My man, I wanted to read about why our ability to focus deeply is disappearing, not your encouragement to become an activist for government intervention. I can't decide whether to donate the book to the thrift store or use it as fire kindling. Any thoughts?
I have just started to read this book to find that it’s missing 39+ pages. With a repeated section of pages 31 to 52 and missing pages 53 to 84, it arrived in an unreadable state. I finally picked it up to find the return deadline has passed. What to do?
