    Story
    (19)

    In a hard-hitting and provocative polemic, Silicon Valley insider and pundit Andrew Keen exposes the grave consequences of today's new participatory Web 2.0 and reveals how it threatens our values, economy, and ultimately the very innovation and creativity that forms the fabric of American achievement.

    Michael Fielden says: "A painful voyage from a single perspective"
    "Totally unbalanced and unprofessional"
    Overall

    The author of this book offers only one side of the issue, avoiding discussion of any virtue offered by the technologies, while pointing out what the author feels are faults in websites like YouTube and (in the most degrading of terms) those that use them.

    Nothing could soften referring to the general public as "monkeys" whose narcissistic nature is, "Threating the very foundations of our culture.", but the way it is said gives impression that the work is meant to insult rather then inform. Any doubt of this is removed by the scathing tone the author uses in addressing the listener when reading his own work. It is unprofessional and unfit for any book attempting to educate its readers.
