The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains - Nicholas G. Carr I didn't know there was going to be so much about books and reading; I liked those parts the best.It was interesting, but I don't really agree with his conclusions. I think when he expanded his original article he actually contradicted himself. Yes, our brains adjust to the ways we use them. That's good, not bad. I suppose it might help to understand what's happening. If you don't like it you can make changes to your lifestyle. The author proved that with himself. I think it's an advantage that our brains can change to help us.
