    As both individuals and communities, we have a choice. We can struggle through the onslaught of information and play an eternal game of catch-up. Or we can choose to live in the present: favor eye contact over texting; quality over speed; and human quirks over digital perfection. Rushkoff offers hope for anyone seeking to transcend the false now.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who is looking for justification for liberal thought or enjoys watching Beavis and Butthead


    What could Douglas Rushkoff have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I really thought the topic was something I would like and probably would have if political "opining" wasn't the central theme. I think he could have made his very important points without dissing Fox News, the tea party, religion, and all conservative thought. He should listen to the book The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt. Jonathan is also a Liberal atheist but is opened minded about different beliefs/moralities. He might learn from Jonathan about the fact that Liberals are unable to grasp 1/2 of the six moral pillars of society and therefore tend to be incapable of understand conservatives who act and think according to all six pillars. Douglas' approach certainly proves this point. He is proudly oblivious.


    What didn’t you like about Kevin T. Collins’s performance?

    I really liked Kevin's delivery but after listening for a couple of chapters I started to think of him as a liberal elitist snob. Certainly not his fault.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The subject matter is very timely and important I think. I was really hoping to get more out of it.
