    A visionary and optimistic thinker examines the tension between privacy and publicness that is transforming how we form communities, create identities, do business, and live our lives. The Internet, he argues, will change business, society, and life as profoundly as Gutenberg’s invention, shifting power from old institutions to us all.

    Any additional comments?

    The author spent too much time both praising Facebook and defending Facebook's darker side. The book quickly began to sound like a sales pitch for Big Brother, Social Media, and Facebook in particular.

    If you could sum up The Woodcutter in three words, what would they be?

    a page turner

    expect the unexpected


    Any additional comments?

    Author Reginald Hill and narrator Jonathan Keeble make a great team. They remind me of the great pairing of Stephen King and Frank Muller.
