READER, COME HOME The Reading Brain in a Digital World

by | Read by Kirsten Potter

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Kristen Potter directs listeners through Wolf's incisive examination of the increased consumption of digital media over the written word--and its impact. The exponential growth of digital formats has measurably changed what readers read--therefore, what they absorb, think, learn, and communicate. This change, Wolf says, comes at a cost to our shared humanity. Sound alarmist? Perhaps, but when these ideas are considered through Wolf's persuasive lens and Potter's assured performance, listeners will have no choice to but to imagine what is at stake. The author's arguments are made through a series of letters addressed to the listener, an effective conceit that Potter embraces through a measured pace and clear enunciation, further reinforcing the all-important transactional nature of reading and listening.
