Book Notes: Team Human

Team Human by Douglas Rushkoff
Read Feb 1, 2019

I agree wholeheartedly with the central premise of this book: that we need a return to human-centric and community-centric values, connection and collaboration.

But sadly the book read as a series of inaccurate statements about what’s going on in the world, designed to evoke an emotional response, but ultimately distracting to someone who is looking for nuance and precision. There is also no suggestion of what to do practically about these issues, other than “find the others”.

All in all, a worthwhile message, but the value of this book could have been condensed in a Tweet. A better (though narrower) take on many of the same themes is Jaron Lanier’s “Ten Arguments For Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now”.
