Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other: Sherry Turkle: 9780465031467: Amazon.com: Books. This book delights as well as confuses. I liked the stories, but I didn’t like how the evidence doesn’t prove her point. While it is obvious she is intelligent and capable, it felt callous the way that she used people in her studies with the robots. One is left with the impression that she did more harm than good to her subjects. More importantly, this doesn’t offer any solutions. This book is a starting point, but like most academics prefers to ask questions than try to answer them.
