RECLAIMING CONVERSATION The Power of Talk in a Digital Age

by | Read by Kirsten Potter

Contemporary Culture • 13.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Low-key urgency flows steadily beneath Kirsten Potter's appealing interpretation of this important audiobook about our diminishing ability to connect with people in intimate ways. Her clear phrasing, full of texture and sonority, makes listeners want to hear every syllable and comprehend every idea. She helps the author make the point that in this digital age too many of us have lost our ability to sense how others feel by indulging in the soothing but profoundly numbing addictions we have to our devices. Potter's attention to the flow of these ideas compels listeners to really think about Turkle's heartfelt invitation to stop our slide into emotional isolation by having the frequent eyeball-to-eyeball conversations we need to really understand each other.
