    Story
    (64)

    As both individuals and communities, we have a choice. We can struggle through the onslaught of information and play an eternal game of catch-up. Or we can choose to live in the present: favor eye contact over texting; quality over speed; and human quirks over digital perfection. Rushkoff offers hope for anyone seeking to transcend the false now.

    Jill says: "Interesting points, painful babble."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Much less detail and side trips for historical reference.


    What was most disappointing about Douglas Rushkoff’s story?

    Any worthwhile point was pounded into your head. Real effort to finish the book. Way too easy to zone out while listening.


    What three words best describe Kevin T. Collins’s voice?

    ok


    What character would you cut from Present Shock?

    Historical side trips that went on so long that you forgot what he was originally talking about.


    Any additional comments?

    Concept of the book was good. Presentation needed much more editing.
