The Chaos Machine: The Inside Story of How Social Media Rewired Our Minds and Our World, by Max Fisher (2022).

“There’s no shortage of books lamenting the evils of social media, but what’s impressive here is how Fisher brings it all together: the breadth of information, covering everything from the intricacies of engagement-boosting algorithms to theories of sentimentalism, makes this a one-stop shop. It’s a well-researched, damning picture of just what happens online.” — Publishers Weekly
