Wow, what an eye opener and a punch in the stomach! L’Enfer numérique: Voyage au bout d’un Like [Digital Hell: The Inner Workings of a “Like”] is about everything digital, the impact on our planet, and where our world is going. It covers the environment, geopolitics, and ultimately, our civilization.
Actually a very scary book.
I usually don’t read horror fiction, but I got my share of horror in this nonfiction book.
