Rob Myers reviews Jaron Lanier's book 'You Are Not A Gadget'.

"Necessary reading for anyone interested in how the Web and the 
software we use every day are reshaping culture and the marketplace." 
Michiko Kakutani, New York Times.

"Jaron Lanier's book 'You Are Not A Gadget' is a timely polemic, a 
cry of the soul in an increasingly soulless Web 2.0 world. I found 
reading it a frustrating and inspiring experience. For every time I 
wanted to throw the book at the wall in exasperation there was a time 
where Lanier spoke to a part of me that the cultural transition from 
90s cyberpunk to 2010s cyberpreppy had optimised out." Rob Myers.
