New York: 2017
Hardcover, New in dust jacket,
282 pp.
Cover artwork by: Pete Garceau

"A funny thing has happened on our way to the digital utopia: we find ourselves increasingly missing reality ... David Sax has found story after story of entrepreneurs, artisans, and creators who make real money by selling real things. And they're not just local craftspeople, either. As paper is supposedly vanishing, Moleskine notebooks - a company founded in 1997, the same year as the first dot-com boom - has grown into a large multinational corporation. As music supposedly migrates to the cloud, vinyl record sales were up over 50 percent in 2015, and generated almost $350m in sales. And as retail was supposedly hitting bottom, star Silicon Valley companies like Apple and Amazon are investing in brick-and-mortar stores.” #59143
