Reclaiming what we've lost in a world of constant connection. This debut work of non-fiction describes the Gutenberg-scale shift in the lives of those who've lived with and without the Internet.
Statement from the Governor General's Literary Award jury:
"Michael Harris's finely crafted book marks the arrival of a surprisingly authoritative media savant, in the grand tradition of McLuhan, Frye and Innis. His book opens a profound vista on an elusive but important phenomenon—the technology that will change us forever."
