Author and broadcaster Andrew Keen is about to unleash his latest book ‘Digital Vertigo‘ in May.

Having earned the title “Antichrist of Silicon Valley” after his last book ‘The Cult of the Amateur‘ was published, readers may be disappointed or relieved to find that his latest work is more nuanced and much calmer in tone.

One thing is for certain, Keen’s writing still helps to balance the tech utopia commonly found in writing around life online and provide different angles as food for thought..

In the video below Keen explains more about the themes in the book and how being truly creative may require us to switch of the crowd and spend some time alone.
