Overview

A brilliant and thoughtful handbook for the Internet age. Bob Woodward

Incisive ... Refreshing ... Compelling. Publishers Weekly

A crisp, passionately argued answer to the question that everyone who s grown dependent on digital devices is asking: Where s the rest of my life? Hamlet s BlackBerry challenges the widely held assumption that the more we connect through technology, the better. It s time to strike a new balance, William Powers argues, and discover why it's also important to disconnect. Part memoir, part intellectual journey, the book draws on the technological past and great thinkers such as Shakespeare and Thoreau. Connectedness has been considered from an organizational and economic standpoint from Here Comes Everybody to Wikinomics but Powers examines it on a deep interpersonal, psychological, and emotional level. Readers of Malcolm Gladwell s The Tipping Point and Outliers will relish Hamlet s BlackBerry.
