The Tyranny of Email
The Four-thousand-year Journey to your InboxBook - 2009
The award-winning editor of Granta magazine examines the astonishing growth of email - and how it is affecting people's lives, not always for the better. Drawing extensively on the research of linguists, behavioural scientists, cultural critics and philosophers, Freeman examines the way email is taking a mounting toll both on language and on social behaviour. He enters a plea for communication which is slower, more nuanced and - above all - more sociable.
