    In Smarter Than You Think, Thompson documents how every technological innovation - from the printing press to the telegraph - has provoked the very same anxieties that plague us today. We panic that life will never be the same, that our attentions are eroding, that culture is being trivialized. But as in the past, we adapt, learning to use the new and retaining what’s good of the old.

    What made the experience of listening to Smarter Than You Think the most enjoyable?

    As a person who loves technology and the Internet, this book was a breath of fresh air. Clive did a fantastic job of pointing out how we've been using technology since at least Roman times to augment our intellect and improve our effectiveness.

    I was especially impressed with the chapter about how some teachers are using the Internet to improve their ability to give students more one-on-one attention.

    I think this book should be turned into a video documentary.
