Product 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?fromHere Comes Everybody to Wikinomics?but Powers examines it on a deep interpersonal, psychological, and emotional level. Readers of Malcolm Gladwell?sThe Tipping Point and Outliers will relish Hamlet?s BlackBerry.
