I struggled to finish sometimes due to the somewhat dry academic nature of the book. Being academic in style isn't necessarily bad, the topic was actually really well formed and argued. This is a book I definitely would have loved more in print though. I'll be buying Tyler's next book, but not in audiobook format.

This book is a MUST READ. For a new generation flooded with hardware and software, Cowen offers important insights into a general decline in risk-taking and creativity that has been reinforced by the literal codification of existence. More and more our devices are lulling us into (advertiser-funded) augmented realities that render us into a state of numbness easily appeased by consumer goods. Cowen effectively uses social and economic examples from history and from other nations to illustrate the profound existential challenges on the rise in our device-driven realities.
