A book that dares to describe individualism as a religion and paint a reality that is primarily virtual, rather than physical.

Den mest informationstäta bok jag någonsin läst, wow. Stundtals helt fantastisk men ibland tappade jag fokus och förstod inte ett enda ord...boken kräver minst sagt högt fokus. Hur som haver är boken otroligt intressant, särskilt iom att den är tidsenlig och mycket aktuell. Betyg: 3,5/5
