Book Description: â€śA brilliant and thoughtful handbook for the Internet age.â€ť â€”Bob Woodward â€śIncisive ... Refreshing ... Compelling.â€ť â€”Publishers Weekly A crisp, passionately argued answer to the question that everyone whoâ€™s grown dependent on digital devices is asking: Whereâ€™s the rest of my life? Hamletâ€™s BlackBerry challenges the widely held assumption that the more we connect through technology, the better. Itâ€™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. â€śConnectednessâ€ť has been considered from an organizational and economic standpointâ€”from Here Comes Everybody to Wikinomicsâ€”but Powers examines it on a deep interpersonal, psychological, and emotional level. Readers of Malcolm Gladwellâ€™s The Tipping Point and Outliers will relish Hamletâ€™s BlackBerry.
