   A book that makes you think
Marketing guru Paul Hubbard's book makes you think a lot about business, marketing and the internet. Somehow we are not that far away from having a feed from the internet implanted in our brains, he said. We're so far away, it's hard to say. Will big business and the government control our access to information and our thoughts?

   Very entertaining AND disturbing
Very entertaining reading, very disturbing, too. If you already have concerns about social media people staring at their smart phone all the time, you will after you read this book. Even though it paints a pretty bleak picture of our future, I enjoyed it.

   I just read the future and how the smart phones will one day rule our world. Be afraid, be very afraid!
What a trip!!!!!!!!! Young readers will find many of the answers in the book, "Do the Right Things." Like Orwell's 1984, Blair predicts how computers will run our lives in the future. If you are too young to see what the smart phones of the future will be like and how businesses will use the technology to run the world, this is the story. And because they are smart phones, Apple is making them even more scary and ominous. It's just that you're scared, very scared.

   I love the book
The book was delivered in a timely manner. I've read the book, and I'm a huge fan. The way the information was presented was awesome, too. The author of this book is presented with a wealth of knowledge in a relatively short amount of time.

   Good Book
The book was also recommended to her mother, who said it was "perfect for her daughter." Her brother, who also read the book, said it was "pretty good."

   must-read
The book is a well-written dystopian novel that extrapolates a bleak future, based on our consumer-driven society and addiction to internet. The writing style comes complete with its own set of slang and the narrative is presented in a casual vernacular to illustrate the state of the society the book was written in.

   it was recommended to me and I'm glad I read it
Loved the use of language, he said. There are no horrible dumps, the setting is shown without forcing the reader to enter the information. I am a big fan of internal fan conflict, Raymond said.

   GOOOOD BOOOK.
i love this book, read it in high school and i thought it was pretty creative, too. Imagine, one said, what the world would look like if all the living things could turn out the way they did. There are bits of humor, too, great read overall.

   Came in great condition
Bought it for an english course and although i didnt like the terms of "meg" and "other short words" i can say it was an ok book, an imagination of the future and the "love" of two kids wasn't really love.

   Thought provoking
Limits to technology are often met with resistance. It's just that easy to manipulate minds with the continued onslaught of information. Experience the bloom of awareness in a Feed world where corporations control everything you hear, consumerism is the height of all, and actions seem to have no consequences. But wait how far can technology and consumerism go before it crashes? Negative numbers are often cited as an example of how technology can be used to improve lives.
