From coffee shops to city grids to TikTok feeds and Netflix homepages the world round, algorithmic recommendations dictate our experiences. This network of mathematically determined choices - the 'filterworld' - has taken over, almost unnoticed, as we've grown accustomed to an insipid new normal.

From New Yorker staff writer and author of 'The Longing for Less' Kyle Chayka comes a timely history and investigation of a world ruled by algorithms, which determine the shape of culture itself.
