His books. (15 as of this post)

Most recent book: PRESENT SHOCK: When Everything Happens Now

The Rushkoff book that I first read: Program or Be Programmed: Ten Commands for a Digital Age

Rushkoff’s perspective of the digital revolution complements those of Scott Burken and Frank Rose. Each author’s work informs the others’ works. Multiple readings are recommended. With respect to that, it’s time for me to revisit all three of their works. It will be interesting to discover new facets that time will reveal as it has been over year since I first read them.


Frank Rose

Frank Rose is the second author whose work I discovered during the summer of 2012. His book, The Art of Immersion, explores how our current digital age of story telling has transformed audiences from passive receivers to active participants. While reading his book, I couldn’t help but think of McLuhan and his work.
