Are we driving off a digital cliff and heading for disaster, unable to focus, maintain concentration, or form the human bonds that make life worth living? Are media and business doomed and about to be replaced by amateur hour?

The world, as Nick Bilton—with tongue-in-cheek—shows, has been going to hell for a long, long time, and what we are experiencing is the twenty-first-century version of the fear that always takes hold as new technology replaces the old. In fact, as Bilton shows, the digital era we are part of is, in all its creative and disruptive forms, the foundation for exciting and engaging experiences not only for business but society as well.
Both visionary and practical, I Live in the Future & Here’s How It Works captures the zeitgeist of an emerging age, providing the understanding of how a radically changed media world is influencing human behavior.

    " It reads as long NY Times article and even though there is lots of interesting research mentioned it does not say anything really surprising. But what is great about the book is its optimism and openness to the new. Basically it says that our world is changing and even though this transition might be bumpy there is no need to worry. We have been there before and change is good. It turned me in to a techno-optimist, at least now in a days after reading it. I would definitely recommend it. And it was a first book I bought on my Kindle - impulse buy after I read an article in NY Times about it on my Kindle while traveling in a city tram. "

    " I like that he connects all formats to telling a story and how effective getting to that storytelling (content) is crucial. But there isn't much new here. Did think referring to Reader's Digest was the Twitter of that time was amusing. "

    " I now feel very knowledgeable about technology use in the porn industry. No, really! I also got some great arguments for calming the panic about how "paper is dead, and we're all moving to eReaders." And that the interwebs is not the death of us all, despite what I hear all the time. Definitely worth the read, but maybe not at the beach like I did. "

    " Good book club book because of the discussion topics. It is well written and easy read, but nothing really new here. Particularly for people in this group. "
