SHALLOWS: How the Internet is Changing the Way We Think

NICHOLAS CARR    Book Number: 89638    Product format: Paperback

A finalist for the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in Non-fiction, Nicholas Carr's bestseller The Shallows has become a foundational book in one of the most important debates of our time. As we enjoy the Internet's bounties, are we sacrificing the ability to read, remember and think deeply? This 10th anniversary edition includes a new afterword that brings the story up to date with a deep examination of the cognitive and behavioural effects of smartphones and social media. Carr draws on the latest scientific research to show that the Internet is literally rewiring our brains, inducing only superficial understanding and as a consequence there are profound changes in the way we live and communicate, remember and socialise, even in our very conception of ourselves. Are we entering the shallows of distraction and fostering ignorance? 294pp, paperback.
