    Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other

    by Sherry Turkle


    A groundbreaking book by one of the most important thinkers of our time shows how technology is warping our social lives and our inner ones

    Technology has become the architect of our intimacies. Online, we fall prey to the illusion of companionship, gathering thousands of Twitter and Facebook friends, and confusing tweets and wall posts with authentic communication.

Based on hundreds of interviews and with a new introduction taking us to the present day, Alone Together describes changing, unsettling relationships between friends, lovers, and families.
