A thorough, systematic look at what Morozov terms "technological solutionism" and "Internet-centrism". Along with his laser-like logical critiques of some logically sloppy, fatuous techtopian writings, Morozov uses his knowledge of the history of thought on technonology and political philosophy to show that little of this is really very new. Morozov is careful to be neither mindlessly pro- nor anti-technology, but asks us to carefully examine our options, not only as consumers but as citizens, for each particular case. In particular, he does an excellent job of unpacking arguments which talk of "the Internet" as a single, irresistible entity which we are told we must simply accept as we find it now. if you have a very poor attention span, this book is not for you.

Three hundred pages too long. I can better imagine this book as a series of five-page magazine articles.
