My new book Coders takes you deep into the wild world of computer programmers -- the people who increasingly run today's world. What makes them tick? How do they think? And what plans do they have to change the way you work, think, and live? 

Advance praise for Coders:

"For a book this important, inspiring, and scary, it’s sinfully fun to read.” —STEVEN LEVY, author of In the Plex

"Clive Thompson is more than a gifted reporter and writer. He is a brilliant social anthropologist. And, in this masterful book, he illuminates both the fascinating coders and the bewildering technological forces that are transforming the world in which we live.” —DAVID GRANN, author of The Lost City of Z and Killers of the Flower Moon
