Nicholas CarrThe Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains

Nicholas Carr, the best-selling author of The Big Switch, reads from and discusses his new book The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains, his explosive look at technology’s effect on the mind. “Is Google making us stupid?” When Nicholas Carr posed that question, in a celebrated Atlantic Monthly cover story, he tapped into a well of anxiety about how the Internet is changing us. He also crystallized one of the most important debates of our time: As we enjoy the Net’s bounties, are we sacrificing our ability to read and think deeply? In The Shallows, Carr expands his argument into the most compelling exploration of the Internet’s intellectual and cultural consequences yet published.

($26.95) W.W. Norton ISBN #978-0-393-07222-8. You can visit Nicholas Carr’s official web site as well.
