Product description

Review

“Anderson’s enthusiasm for his subject matter really shines through. . . . This isn’t a journalist taking a casual interest in a passing fad. This is someone who has a pretty serious grip on what he’s talking about.”
—Latestgadgets.co.uk
 
“Optimism is Anderson’s métier, and in his previous books [he] displayed the same tendency to see only the bright side. In both cases, though, Anderson was on to something, and that’s true of Makers.”
Slate
 
“Anderson is a sort of capitalist revolutionary, and Makers is the industrial chapter in a larger manifesto for the democratizing force of the internet.”
The Telegraph
