Here you can find out what people are saying about Digital Inferno as well as read articles by Paul Levy and colleagues from around the media.

Reviews of  the book Digital Inferno

October 2015: A five star review in Darrow Magazine

“A must-read. Particularly if you’re reading this on your iPad.”

“Digital Inferno possesses then the rare gift of giving you help for something that you never knew you needed help with. Like Plato’s Cave, when you’re aware of the problem, it’s impossible to return to ignorance.”

“From parenting advice to how to stay safe online, every quarter of the digital realm is covered by prose and research that is accessible and fascinating. Using examples and experiences of real people, including his own reflections, Levy is never patronising and builds a case from  experience and the insight of many. It is a rare accomplishment of forgoing a proselytising lecture and focusing sincerely on the life coaching aspects of a very 21st century problem. What Levy has successfully done is to push an avant garde agenda for making digital analysis the umbrella, and not the sub-category, of sociology, philosophy and technology.”

A superb two page review in the print-only magazine, New View, Summer 2015:

“A fascinating book”

“I really liked Levy’s discussion of virtual ‘relationships’ in comparison with real ones…”

“For anyone looking for informed, intelligent and above all, highly achievable ways of managing the digital Inferno and the virtual world in an empowering, conscious way that helps it to serve us (as opposed to making us into its hapless victims ), it is difficult to imagine anything much better than this book. In this sense, it comes very highly recommended.”

“The range of themes and digital phenomena covered is truly impressive”

Dr Richard house, author of Against and Beyond Therapy and Therapy Beyond Modernity



Winter 2015: A lovely review in the magazine, Network Review:

” … a balanced consideration of the dangers of digital drift.”

“This stimulating book gives useful guidance about how to use technology more
consciously and deliberately”

20th February 2015: A nice review in Flight Time Magazine.

1st December 2014: Excellent review in the Irish Times

November 2014: Our first review is in, and it’s a very intelligent four star review from Bookbag – “Books like Digital Inferno have never been more relevant and timely. The book contains plenty of useful suggestions to put the user firmly back in control instead of being a slave to the machine”

“Paul Levy’s book is certainly well timed and contains some great tips.” Nick Brice, Customer Experience Magazine
