Too Much Magic

by Jason Benlevi

Kasha Maznio: This book is really the right message at the right time for techie addicts to luddites like me. I still use a dial phone but could not do without my cell phone or GPS. It warns us to take pause at how we use our devices and how free people are with their personal information, and possible consequences. Technology has altered our lives literally and figuratively. With a simple formula we can alter our photos and change the face of reality. With humor and wit this book discusses the many aspects of how technology touches us, our children and the choices we need to make about getting it under control. .

Sharon Weiss: Whether you embrace technology , fear it, or struggle to adapt to it, Too Much Magic will enlighten you on the brains and money behind the latest electronic devices and services. Mr. Benlevi is a Silicon Valley insider who has spent his career assisting tech companies with their product rollout campaigns, so he is well-qualified to provide a first hand account of the origin of these devices and services. We also learn about the dark marketing side of marketing, loss of privacy and social ramifications of people hooked on the latest gadget to the detriment of personal interaction. Mr. Benleviís witty writing style is entertaining as well as illuminating. It makes you think about your electronic dependencies and those of the people around you. You come away thinking that you need to control how much you will allow the latest technologies to invade your life. It will make you think twice the next time you see a couple out to dinner focused on their cell phones instead of each other. .
