Praises and endorsements
Clay Shirky: Thompson declares a winner in the cognitive fight between human and computers: both together. Smarter Than You Think is an eye-opening exploration of the ways computers think better with humans attached, and vice-versa.
Chris Anderson: Almost without noticing it, the Internet has become our intellectual exoskeleton. Rather than just observing this evolution, Clive Thompson takes us to the people, places, and technologies driving it, bringing deep reporting, storytelling and analysis to one of the most profound shifts in human history.
