What happens to democracy and free speech if people use the Internet to listen and speak only to the like-minded? What is the benefit of the Internet's unlimited choices if citizens narrowly filter the information they receive? Cass Sunstein first asked these questions in 2001's Now, in 2.0, Sunstein thoroughly rethinks the critical relationship between democracy and the Internet in a world where partisan Weblogs have emerged as a significant political 2.0 highlights new research on how people are using the Internet, especially the blogosphere. Sunstein warns against "information cocoons" and "echo chambers," wherein people avoid the news and opinions that they don't want to hear. He also demonstrates the need to regulate the innumerable choices made possible by technology. His proposed remedies and reforms emphasize what consumers and producers can do to help avoid the perils, and realize the promise, of the Internet.

One of the most important researches about negative impacts of the internet communication on our social capabilities and awareness. I can understand why internet and social networks providers could hate this book.

This book is terrible. I could not for the life of me bring myself to read more than a couple paragraphs at a time.

Really good ideas. But you can find online articles by Susstein that state the same ideas in a couple of pages.
