Top ten books to help you survive the digital age

Julian Gough is the author of several novels, a children's book (which Neil Gaiman has called "a breath of fresh air in children's fiction"), some BBC radio plays, and the narrative at the end of the wonderful computer game, Minecraft (TIME magazine's computer game of the year). His latest novel is Connect.

One of the author's ten top books to help you survive the digital age, as shared at the Guardian:
Marshall McLuhan Unbound by Marshall McLuhan (2005)

The visionary Canadian media analyst predicted the internet, and coined the phrase the Global Village, in the early 1960s. His dense, complex, intriguing books explore how changes in technology change us. This book presents his most important essays as 20 slim pamphlets in a handsome, profoundly physical, defiantly non-digital slipcase.
