Reviews

“The pathology of communicative capitalism is timely and accessible, yet theoretically dense, drawing as it does from a wide conceptual arsenal. The book may be of use to new scholars seeking a point of entry into critical scholarship of digital labor and the sociology of contemporary work.” (Matthew Flisfeder, Information, Communication & Society, Vol. 21 (12), 2018)
