The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains - Nicholas Carr

Much has been written about the Internet’s content, but is the web itself—the format of this information—actually changing the way we think? In The Shallows (W.W. Norton, $15.95), a recent finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Nicholas Carr elegantly explores how the Internet alters the physical functioning of our brains, and examines what this means for our culture. He argues that, for the first time, the “linear, literary mind” that has defined most of our history is being replaced by something else. Whether Carr is writing on neuroscience, history, or cultural criticism, The Shallows is a necessary, fascinating study.
