Social media is supposed to bring us together - but it is tearing us apart.

'A blisteringly good, urgent, essential read' Zadie Smith

The evidence suggests that social media is making us sadder, angrier, less empathetic, more fearful, more isolated and more tribal.

Jaron Lanier is the world-famous Silicon Valley scientist-pioneer who first alerted us to the dangers of social media. In this witty and urgent manifesto he explains why its toxic effects are at the heart of its design, and, in ten simple arguments, why liberating yourself from its hold will transform your life and the world for the better.

WITH A NEW AFTERWORD BY THE AUTHOR

'Informed, heartfelt and often entertaining ... a timely reminder that even if we can't bring ourselves to leave social media altogether, we should always think critically about how it works' Sunday Times

'Indispensable. Everyone who wants to understand the digital world, its pitfalls and possibilities should read this book - now' Matthew d'Ancona, author of Post-Truth
