The reviews are in!!!! NYT is raving about EXTREMELY ONLINE
Order the book media outlets are calling one of the best books of the fall.
This weekend, The New York Times published a glowing review of Extremely Online. Clay Shirky, a longtime hero of mine, wrote the review, calling the book a "terrific history of the online creator economy… [Lorenz] is a knowledgeable, opinionated guide to the ways internet fame has become fame, full stop."
The NYT named the book among the 30 books to read this fall, and Town & Country named it one of the best books of the fall.
From Town & Country: “Fascinating, eye-opening, and unbelievable in equal parts, Extremely Online is a comprehensive witness account of the players, operatives, and principals driving content on the internet today, across platforms and even across entire industries. A must-read for anyone wishing to understand the most arcane conspiracy theories taking up the nation's consciousness to the sweeping cultural changes a rising generation has brought about.”
Publisher’s Weekly has called Extremely Online, "a powerful assessment of how logging on has changed the world.... Lorenz accomplishes the difficult feat of wrangling a cogent narrative out of the unruliness of social media, while offering smart insight into how platforms affect their users."
While Dazed has called it "an expansive look at how social platforms have radically altered literally every aspect of our lives."
“If you want to understand what is happening on the internet, you start by reading Taylor Lorenz,” Bloomberg’s Lucas Shaw wrote in an extremely positive piece on the book.
