Overview


Set in the near-future (2008), Exit Strategy is a darkly comic send-up of the dot.com mania of the late 1990s and a modern-day retelling of the story of Joseph. Like Joseph, Jamie Cohen is betrayed by his compadres but unexpectedly finds himself at the right hand of power. He helps a huge venture capitalist build pyramids - except these are investment pyramids based on technology idols. An additional narrative conceit is this: 200 years later, anthropologists find the virtual manuscript of Exit Strategy and begin annotating the text. Hundreds of readers have already contributed footnotes for the book – they are charming, wacky, compelling and Rushkoff has selected one hundred of his favorites for inclusion.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Exit Strategy, the much-hyped open source novel by columnist and commentator Douglas Rushkoff (Coercion, ecstasy Club), is both a moral allegory and a "hypertext labyrinth of references and cross-references" creating a "community riff on our bizarre age." It can be as daunting as it sounds: the tale of a modern Joseph who's caught between the opposite worlds of hackers and venture capitalists sometimes nearly gets buried beneath the footnotes added by readers of the novel's online version, who were told to imagine that the novel had been discovered in the 23rd century ("wedgie: an attack meant to cause pain and embarrassment simultaneously," writes a helpful contemporary reader to future humans). (Soft Skull, $16 paper 340p ISBN 1-887128-90-5) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Great book!

    This is a great book. Pretty amazing. But I'd think that it's a little bit too hard to understand for teenagers. Guessed that adults should understand much better though

    EXIT STRATEGY -- D. Rushkoff

    This is an amazing book; I found out about it through Yahoo INternet Life magazine. I only read whatever was in there; and it intrigued me greatly -- so I went out and bought the book. :) Anyway, just wanted to tell everybody that they should pick up this book and start obsessing over it.

    Outstanding

    I have read his book already on the Yahoo! Internet Life website (yil.com) and it is outstanding! This book isn't really science-fiction, but if you like sci-fi, you will love this book!
