"A valuable primer on this moment where humans are deciding how much power over their lives they give to monopolies and algorithms." (Dave Eggers, best-selling author of The Circle)
Which Side of History? offers a collection of bold essays on how technology is affecting democracy, society, and our future.
Featuring prominent national voices such as Sacha Baron Cohen, Marc Benioff, Ellen Pao, Ken Auletta, Chelsea Clinton, Tim Wu, Khaled Hosseini, Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, Jaron Lanier, Willow Bay, Sal Khan, Sherry Turkle, Shoshana Zuboff, Vivek Murthy, Geoffrey Canada, and many more.
The essays focus on the extraordinary impact of technology on our privacy, kids and families, race and gender roles, democracy, climate change, and mental health.
This groundbreaking audiobook challenges opinion leaders and the broader public to take action to improve technology's effects on our lives.

This book will help shape the conversations we have around technology in our society and our future for years to come.
A smart gift for anyone who approaches tech and the future with a healthy skepticism
