Books Read in 2011: "Life, Inc." by Douglas Rushkoff



"Life, Inc." at Douglas Rushkoff's website.

Another unabridged audiobook.

Not bad, but a little light and unfocused. Not a bad diagnosis, and a decent primer on how things got to where they are, but not much in the way of prescription or prognosis. If anything, it's probably a little soft on the responsibility we all have for willingly handing over so much money, information, and control to corporations. Like Google, who owns Blogger, where I'm posting this. Or Audible, a property of Amazon.com, from whom I downloaded the audio files to my Apple iMac computer and later put them on my iPhone for listening.
