People either love or hate Jaron; while I am one of the rare cases that find him both interesting and intermittently right and wrong about different ideas.

Sometimes this book is a little hard to read if you've never heard of words like "neotony" or "juvenilia" or "Cephalopods." That's ok. I like to learn new words. And I like Lanier's brand of humanism. It's a refreshing antidote to Silicon Valley snuff.
