About this deal

As we examine and reflect on the charts, we must pay special attention to the weakest spots, like…the dangers related to the disconnected American men. Wanted to try the book after reading the articles of author on medium, but the publisher ruined the entire experience and money! If he is quick about it than the current government might have a chance to read it whilst they are still in office. And , for some of them , the format has great advantage that when consuming charts people cannot see your lips moving as you read something you find too complex and challenging.

The internet, though, has taken a huge bite out of the news industry while tech companies like Google and Facebook reap enormous profits. An urgent examination of America's future through a review of its past from 1945 to today for readers seeking to understand the reasons for its political, social and economic crisis from New York Times bestselling author Scott Galloway. Between 2010 and 2015, Twitter’s monthly active user base grew tenfold, from 30 million to 300 million. This time, what will it take for our nation to keep up with the fast and violent changes to our new world? He even offers his take on what it will take to "fix" things -- if only there was the political will to accomplish the recommended changes.With social media platforms users are not consumers – they are the product, based on their data exhaust. By 2021, 50% of Americans controlled only 2% of the nation’s wealth, and the richest 1% had almost a third. Without earning a college degree, you’re much less likely to make a comparable wage to those with a degree. From 2008 to 2017, the number of adults who talk to their neighbors fell from 71 percent all the way down to 54 percent. Each chart fits into an overall narrative of decline but each is accompanied by crisp, clean thoughtful text which displays the art of a skilled editor.

In my opinion, this book grossly oversimplified 100 different issues and used the facade of ���statistics” to appear objective and authoritative.Numerous faults in our core infrastructure have led to crises that once seemed unimaginable: In Flint, Michigan, 12,000 children drank lead-contaminated water, causing irreparable brain damage that affects academic performance and IQ and increases the likelihood of Alzheimer’s and Legionnaires’ disease. I've got nothing like that - the charts were not surprising at all, they didn't bring any revelation, I've done no notes, and there was nothing memorable.
