Team Human, by Douglas Rushkoff

February 02, 2019

In this astonishing book the digital theorist Douglas Rushkoff argues that we are essentially social creatures, and that we achieve our greatest aspirations when we work together - not as individuals. Yet today society is threatened by a vast antihuman infrastructure that undermines our ability to connect. Technologies, markets, and cultural institutions – once forces for human connection and expression – are now isolating and repressing us. Rushkoff offers us a solution to resist and survive these destructive forces: being social and being part of a team. Based on a wide-ranging research, the author shows that when we work together we realize greater happiness, productivity, and peace. If we understand this fundamental truth and reassert our humanity, together, we can make the world a better place to be human.
