Review:

'64 THINGS brings an interesting and different spin to the usual offerings in the futurology literature department... Ben Hammersley, guru of the digital age, touches on technology, politics and society in an easy-to-read analysis of some of the key cultural and technological changes of the 21st century... The topics are well-ordered and structured, which helps the book's linearity, while having the simultaneous effect of showing how much of the subject matter is interlinked. Chapter after chapter, readers will be reflecting on their own experiences in relation to Hammersley's astute observations.' 7/10 * Press Association * 'you can feel your mind expanding with each page'. * Financial Times *
