In How to Fix the Future, Andrew Keen combines his experiences in Silicon Valley with extensive interviews and analysis to identify the strategies we need in order to tackle the huge challenges of this digital century, and shows how we have dealt with radical technological change in the past, especially after the Industrial Revolution.
