Recensioner

The thesis is accurate: that technology has transformed our thinking and perhaps even made us “shallower”. But the actual book is 99% a collection of known stories referring to other journalistic non fiction that make for good examplss. The author makes little or no effort to understand what actual knowledge he is talking about rather he blends examples because they are vaguely in the right domain.

The author should have dedicated more than few percent of the book to the key experiments that suggest more shallow thinking patterns. And should have gone into this with diligence and looking at scale of problem.

Basically as it stands a fun empty book because there is little actual work done in it.
