Team Human:
“A provocative, exciting, and important rallying cry to reassert our human
spirit of community and teamwork.”―Walter Isaacson

Team Human is a manifesto―a fiery distillation of preeminent digital theorist
Douglas Rushkoff’s most urgent thoughts on civilization and human nature. In
one hundred lean and incisive statements, he argues that we are essentially
social creatures, and that we achieve our greatest aspirations when we work
together―not as individuals. Yet today society is threatened by a vast
antihuman infrastructure that undermines our ability to connect. Money, once a
means of exchange, is now a means of exploitation; education, conceived as way
to elevate the working class, has become another assembly line; and the internet
has only further divided us into increasingly atomized and radicalized groups.

Team Human delivers a call to arms. If we are to resist and survive these
destructive forces, we must recognize that being human is a team sport. In
Rushkoff’s own words: “Being social may be the whole point.” Harnessing
wide-ranging research on human evolution, biology, and psychology, Rushkoff
shows that when we work together we realize greater happiness, productivity, and
peace. If we can find the others who understand this fundamental truth and
reassert our humanity―together―we can make the world a better place to be
human.
