Included in Backchannel’s ( “Top Tech Books of 2017” An “important” book on the “pervasive influence of Silicon Valley on our economy, culture and politics.” —New York Times How the titans of tech's embrace of economic disruption and a rampant libertarian ideology is fracturing America and making it a meaner place In The Know-It-Alls former New York Times technology columnist Noam Cohen chronicles the rise of Silicon Valley as a political and intellectual force in American life. Beginning nearly a century ago and showcasing the role of Stanford University as the incubator of this new class of super geeks, Cohen shows how smart guys like Jeff Bezos, Peter Thiel, Sergey Brin, Larry Page, and Mark Zuckerberg fell in love with a radically individualistic ideal and then mainstreamed it. With these very rich men leading the way, unions, libraries, public schools, common courtesy, and even government itself have been pushed aside to make way for supposedly efficient market-based encounters via the Internet. Donald Trump’s election victory was an inadvertent triumph of the "disruption" that Silicon Valley has been pushing: Facebook and Twitter, eager to entertain their users, turned a blind eye to the fake news and the hateful ideas proliferating there. The Rust Belt states that shifted to Trump are the ones being left behind by a "meritocratic" Silicon Valley ideology that promotes an economy where, in the words of LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, each of us is our own start-up. A society that belittles civility, empathy, and collaboration can easily be led astray. The Know-It-Alls explains how these self-proclaimed geniuses failed this most important test of democracy.

My book began as a very small idea in my head to help keep my personal life more organized. And, as it grew, it became apparent that maybe I wasn't the only person in the world that wanted to keep their records in one area. So, as it grew and grew, it became a book called "KNOW IT ALL - The Book About You". It should allow you to keep pertinent information close at hand. There is a chapter for hopefully, anything that you wish to keep track of . Some categories are detail and unlike myself, you might not want to spend the required time on entering information. But, in my own book after I have entered information it has proven itself to be a valuable record of the "goings-on" in my life.

The “philosopher of truth” (Jill Lepore, The New Yorker) returns with a clear-eyed and timely critique of our culture’s narcissistic obsession with thinking that “we” know and “they” don’t. Taking stock of our fragmented political landscape, Michael Patrick Lynch delivers a trenchant philosophical take on digital culture and its tendency to make us into dogmatic know-it-alls. The internet—where most shared news stories are not even read by the person posting them—has contributed to the rampant spread of “intellectual arrogance.” In this culture, we have come to think that we have nothing to learn from one another; we are rewarded for emotional outrage over reflective thought; and we glorify a defensive rejection of those different from us. Interweaving the works of classic philosophers such as Hannah Arendt and Bertrand Russell and imposing them on a cybernetic future they could not have possibly even imagined, Lynch delves deeply into three core ideas that explain how we’ve gotten to the way we are: • our natural tendency to be overconfident in our knowledge; • the tribal politics that feed off our tendency; • and the way the outrage factory of social media spreads those politics of arrogance and blind conviction. In addition to identifying an ascendant “know-it-all-ism” in our culture, Lynch offers practical solutions for how we might start reversing this dangerous trend—from rejecting the banality of emoticons that rarely reveal insight to embracing the tenets of Socrates, who exemplified the humility of admitting how little we often know about the world, to the importance of dialogue if we want to know more. With bracing and deeply original analysis, Lynch holds a mirror up to American culture to reveal that the sources of our fragmentation start with our attitudes toward truth. Ultimately, Know-It-All Society makes a powerful new argument for the indispensable value of truth and humility in democracy.

One of the most complained about and denigrating social issue that impacts human relationships and friendships is the Know-It-All behavior in all its manifestations and ramifications. Furthermore, most people know and remember vividly the feeling of discomfort and tense trepidation that lasts the duration of an encounter with a Know-It-All. The tens of thousands of Know-It-All related complaints from people of all walks of life, gender and culture helps us to comprehend the magnitude of this exasperating and aggravating social problem. This book is uniquely a first on many fronts, it defines the term Know-It-All, identifies who is a Know-It-All, enumerates in an anecdotic manner the different ways people manifest the Know-It-All behavior, recounts how the Know-It-All behavior makes us feel, details psychologist’s recommendations for curtailing and stopping the Know-It-All behavior, and finally empowers victims with 20 practical ways to peacefully and respectfully shut up a Know-It-All. This well researched book has more than 250 references.
