SummaryA funny thing has happened on our way to the digital utopia: we find ourselves increasingly missing reality. In this spirited audiobook, David Sax has found story after story of entrepreneurs, artisans, and creators who make real money by selling real things. As paper is supposedly vanishing, Moleskine notebooks, a company founded in 1997, 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. As retail is supposedly hitting bottom, star Silicon Valley companies like Apple and Amazon are investing in brick-and-mortar stores. Sax's work reveals not just an underreported trend in business but a more fundamental truth about how humans shop, interact, and even think. He captures what you're missing when you can't find a good song in a vast iTunes library, or can't recall the details of an ebook you read: Any simulation of a sight or smell or activity you experience in the real world is just a simulation.
