Five books

I had the pleasure recently of being interviewed, by Alec Ash, for The Browser’s excellent “Five Books” series, in which one writer talks about five books written by other writers. The theme of my interview was the Information Age, which I think had its origins back in the fifteenth century, with the arrival of the mechanical clock and the invention of the printing press, and the five books I chose to talk about were Tom Standage’s The Victorian Internet, James Gleick’s The Information, Tim Wu’s The Master Switch, Matthew Crawford’s Shop Class as Soulcraft, and Gary Shteyngart’s Super Sad True Love Story. You can read the interview here.

    I read your book a few times and I enjoyed it. Thank you for taking time to write it.

    I just love how that word ‘distraction’ is hyperlinked in the transcript.
