“A hybrid of memoir, technical primer and social history . . . [Auerbach] suggests that we need to be bitwise (i.e. understand the world through the lens of computers) as well as worldwise . . . We need guides on this journey—judicious, balanced and knowledgeable commentators, like Auerbach.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“A valuable resource for readers seeking to understand themselves in this new universe of algorithms, as data points and as human beings.”
—The New Republic

“A profound memoir, a manifesto, and a warning about the digital world. Auerbach spins out the secret history of the computational universe we all live in now, filtering insider technical know-how through a profoundly humanistic point of view like no book since Gödel, Escher, Bach.”
—Jordan Ellenberg, author of How Not to Be Wrong
