    Weaving insights from philosophy, neuroscience, and history into a rich narrative, The Shallows explains how the Internet is rerouting our neural pathways, replacing the subtle mind of the book reader with the distracted mind of the screen watcher. A gripping story of human transformation played out against a backdrop of technological upheaval, The Shallows will forever alter the way we think about media and our minds.

    Would you listen to The Shallows again? Why?

    yes, it is full of references, informations and historical anecdotes.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    its both okay and not so that i developed into a scatterbrain - at least sometimes i will still get into my deepreading (or listening) phases.


    Any additional comments?

    interesting theory, well presented arguments, right out of (my) life.
