The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains - Nicholas G. Carr Discuss: This book took me a month to read because I have internet caused ADD and can't manage to focus on something long enough to process it correctly.Basically, this book terrified me. I guess in a good way. I realize that though I spend lots of time on the internet, I also read a significant amount, but this book made me think about the way I am reading and how I am consuming information in general. It was a good, thought-provoking treatise on how the internet is changing the way we think and interact with media, and how we need to consider not only the positives but the possible negatives as well. I enjoyed this book a lot, but like I said, it took some time to process, and there were definitely some parts which were a little bit scientific and dry for me, and that I couldn't understand at all. Otherwise, it was great!
