UK technology magazine Wired has reviewed the The Fix:
The entrepreneurial spirit of technology is now infusing the social lives of young people who take the sorts of risks with their bodies that start-up founders take with their bank accounts. Thompson’s purpose in this new book is to ask: are we sure we know what we’re doing to ourselves?
The Fix runs the full gamut of food, shopping, sex, gaming and pornography addictions in the modern world. It explains how each is sliding dangerously out of control, suggesting that the primary purpose of government in the future may be the management and treatment of its citizens’ addictions.
It also, with gentle but terrifyingly persuasive regularity, reminds us of the red thread running through all this: the rapid advances in technology that are creating a widening gap between the evolutionary progress of our bodies and minds and the disorientating world around us.
