"I've been raving about Naomi Klein's Doppelganger . . . I can't think of another text that better captures the berserk period we're living through." Michelle Goldberg, The New York Times

"If I had to name a single book that makes sense of these last few dark years, it would be this one." Katie Roiphe, The New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice)
"If ever a book was necessary, it's this one." Bill McKibben

"Thoughtful and honest . . . Incisive . . . Klein moves her reader toward the truer grounds of solidarity in these times." Judith Butler
What if you woke up one morning and found you'd acquired another selfa double who was almost you and yet not you at all? What if that double shared many of your preoccupations but, in a twisted, upside-down way, furthered the very causes you'd devoted your life to fighting against?
Not long ago, the celebrated activist and public intellectual Naomi Klein had just such an experienceshe was confronted with a doppelganger whose views she found abhorrent but whose name and public persona were sufficiently similar to her own that many people got confused about who was who. Destabilized, she lost her bearings, until she began to understand the experience as one manifestation of a strangeness many of us have come to know but struggle to define: AI-generated text is blurring the line between genuine and spurious communication; New Age wellness entrepreneurs turned anti-vaxxers are scrambling familiar political allegiances of left and right; and liberal democracies are teetering on the edge of absurdist authoritarianism, even as the oceans rise. Under such conditions, reality itself seems to have become unmoored. Is there a cure for our moment of collective vertigo?
Naomi Klein is one of our most trenchant and influential social critics, an essential analyst of what branding, austerity, and climate profiteering have done to our societies and souls. Here she turns her gaze inward to our psychic landscapes, and outward to the possibilities for building hope amid intersecting economic, medical, and political crises. With the assistance of Sigmund Freud, Jordan Peele, Alfred Hitchcock, and bell hooks, among other accomplices, Klein uses wry humor and a keen sense of the ridiculous to face the strange doubles that haunt usand that have come to feel as intimate and proximate as a warped reflection in the mirror.
Combining comic memoir with chilling reportage and cobweb-clearing analysis, Klein seeks to smash that mirror and chart a path beyond despair. Doppelganger asks: What do we neglect as we polish and perfect our digital reflections? Is it possible to dispose of our doubles and overcome the pathologies of a culture of multiplication? Can we create a politics of collective care and undertake a true reckoning with historical crimes? The result is a revelatory treatment of the way many of us think and feel nowand an intellectual adventure story for our times.

They say everyone has a double somewhere in the world. Naomi Klein discovered hers just as the Covid-19 pandemic was ramping up. Klein is well-known as a smart, left-leaning social activist and writer. She was dismayed to find that people were confusing her with Naomi Wolf who is also a writer but started espousing conspiracy theories starting in 2014. In the early days of the pandemic she was vocally against lockdowns, vaccinations and masking. Frequently, Wolf's statements were attributed to Klein who had no difficulty with following pandemic restrictions and getting vaccinated. This started Klein to do a deep dive into research about the world her doppelganger inhabited. Klein calls Wolf "the Other Naomi" or sometimes just "the Other" throughout the rest of the book. Her thesis is that society has become so deeply fractured along political and ideological lines that it's like there are mirror images. I can't possibly do justice to the book in a short review but it was fascinating to follow Klein's thoughts. Subjects range from Nazis to autism to Israel and Palestine. Although the book was released before the Hamas attack on Israel and the subsequent war in the Gaza Strip, Klein was remarkably prescient in discussing the area.

Klein may have gotten a tad obsessed with Wolf. Her husband, Avi Lewis, once found her doing yoga listening to a podcast of an interview with Wolf. On the other hand, know thy enemy is usually sound advice. ( )

Naomi Klein, una de las periodistas más influyentes del mundo y autora de bestsellers como No logo y La doctrina del shock, nos ofrece en Doppelganger un análisis revelador del laberinto de espejos de la política de hoy y de las realidades inciertas del universo digital.

¿Qué pasaría si te despertaras una mañana y descubrieras que has adquirido otro yo, un doble que casi eres tú, pero que en realidad no lo es? ¿Qué pasaría si ese doble compartiera muchas de tus preocupaciones, pero de forma totalmente opuesta, y promoviera aquellas causas contra las que has luchado toda tu vida?

Cuando Naomi Klein descubrió en las redes a una mujer con su nombre de pila, pero con opiniones dañinas y radicalmente diferentes a las suyas, a la que confundían crónicamente con ella, parecía demasiado ridículo para tomárselo en serio. Hasta que dejó de serlo.

De repente empezó a enfrentarse a una realidad distorsionada, a obsesionarse con las amenazas que recibía en línea, con los interminables insultos de los seguidores de su doble. ¿Por qué su otra sombra había seguido un camino tan extremo? ¿Por qué la identidad —todo lo que tenemos para enfrentarnos al mundo— puede ser tan inestable?

Llena de confusión y dispuesta a encontrar las respuestas, Klein decidió seguir a su doble en un extraño e insólito mundo espejo y, al hacerlo, pone al descubierto nuestra propia cultura en este momento surrealista de la historia, en el que nos hemos convertido en pulidas marcas virtuales.

Doppelganger es un libro para nuestra época y para todos nosotros; una comedia negra absolutamente seria que nos invita a enfrentarnos a nuestros reflejos en el espejo. Es para cualquiera que haya perdido horas en el pozo sin fondo que es Internet, que se haya preguntado por qué nuestra política se ha deformado tanto y que quiera salir del vértigo colectivo y volver a luchar por lo que de verdad importa.

Sadly, my least favorite of all Klein's books. The premise of the book is very interesting. I have myself fallen into the trap of once switching the two Naomis up while I was watching a YT.
But, it barely lasted for 10 mins, as the political views of the N. Wolf are so vastly different than Klein's.
But, something about this book just feels like a superficial rant, and I didn't like it. Other than the brief focus on the "other Klein" that was a sort of introduction to the "mirror universe", it was mostly a letdown. The whole mirror universe thing reminded me strongly of the Star Trek Terran Empire episodes which were a much better experience than this book.

I was expecting Klein's studious approach to the relativity of truth in the age of eco chambers and both sides of the political spectrum flirting with conspiracy theory-like material. I found a hot mess of all the hot topics talked about in the public space, esp. on Twitter, and God knows that is a septic tank of the Internet. I mention Twitter cause this book has a similar vibe.
Klein is quick to judge the political opposition but fails to see that she herself falls into the trap of pioneering some ideas that verge on the conspiracy territory, as long as they are politically acceptable to her.
The book is still an easy and somewhat interesting read, esp. because Klein is such a good writer. But, overall it needed better editing and a more general focus. At times it felt as if Klein was a little neurotic and self-obsessed and it kind of turned me off.

2.5 rounded up. ( )

This could have been a really frivolous book. Anyone who writes an entire book about how they're constantly mistaken for another author/talking head with a similar name and of vaguely similar appearance could easily be accused of making much too much out of very little. Or of unrestrained navel-gazing. But "Doppelganger" is a remarkably complete and thoughtful take on the double, ranging from its role in literature, painting, and psychology to, most urgently, contemporary American politics. I'd never read Naomi (Klein) before, and I picked up my copy for just a couple of bucks, but "Doppelganger" goes deeper than I really expected it to.

Throughout the book, Klein impresses upon the reader that she took the time to do the legwork. She listened to countless hours of Steve Bannon's "War Room" podcast. She saw what happened to her husband's resoundingly unsuccessful semi-socialist bid for the Canadian legislature -- which happened at the height of the COVID pandemic -- close up. She dove into Twitter when it was still called Twitter. She comes out with some interesting theories, and while I don't know if they're all-the-way correct, they likely deserve your time and attention. Klein grapples with the essential cult of individuality on both the far left on the right, the attitude that unites macha-drinking health-obssessed yoga moms and gun-toting libertarians. Both of these groups resisted the very idea of vaccine mandates or widespread closures during the pandemic, and the author draws intering connections between the two groups leading back to, yes, the wandervogel proto-Nazi movement that linked the healthy great outdoors with racial purity.

The product of two committed non-institutional socialist teachers, she also posits that capitalism's own bent toward the individual leads people down conspiratorial rabbit holes when things don't work out as they'd planned. Hero stories, one of her sources notes, can easily become villian stories. It's one thing to be empowered by throwing away modern beauty standards in order to live a better life, but if the confines of that life are still dictated by purely capitalist values, there are always going to be a lot of losers wondering why they've been left out and looking for someone to blame.

This is where "Doppelganger" is at its most improbable and, perversely, perhaps, its most inspiring. Klein calls for a world that de-centers the engorged modern self, fed on social media and capitalist values, a world where we could know ourselves and each other without the sort of angst that comes with obsessing about our own identities. This is an emotionally generous vision, and while it might not be practical, Klein's call to rethink our basic, often directly contradictory values may be worth heeding, and is certainly worth reading about. Recommended. ( )

A fantastic account of the real parallel lives of two Naomi's across a chasmic cultural divide. On one side the do-good, humanistic values driven researcher, at least in theory open to discussion and constructive knowledge creation... on the other the memetic dark arts, which interweaves info-content charged with emotion to drive its spread and adoption of values.

The two get intermixed despite all attempts to avoid this and this plays out damaging those who have more to lose as it is much trickier to work with integrity etc..

I found a problem with the book in a few areas:
- limited consideration of what options she really had to "fight back"
- a missing understanding of why audiences enjoy the memetic dark arts
- more perspective on how this plays across the world dialogue and what is driving it
( hint lack of authoritative verification, attribution )

In my defense, it was never my intent to write this book. I did not have time. No one asked me to. And several people strongly cautioned against it. Not now - not with the literal and figurative fires roiling our planet. And certainly not about this. -Introduction: Off-Brand Me
The first time it happened I was in a stall in a public bathroom just off Wall Street in Manhattan. I was about to open the door when I heard two women talking about me.

"Did you see what Naomi Klein said?"

I froze, flashing back to every mean girl in high school, pre-humuliated. What had I said?

"Something about how the march today is a bad idea."

"What asked her? I really don't think she understands our demands."

Wait. I hadn't said anything about the march - or the demands. Then it hit me: I knew who had. I casually strolled to the sink, made eye contact with one of the women in the mirror, and said words I would repeat far too many times in the months and years to come.

"I think you are talking about Naomi Wolf."
