THE SHALLOWS What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains

by | Read by Paul Michael Garcia

Contemporary Culture • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Expanding on his ATLANTIC MONTHLY cover story, Nicholas Carr debates whether our Internet use is sacrificing our ability both to read long, complex material and to think deeply, with reflection. The author takes a historically thoughtful, logical, and neuroscientific perspective. The history of the invention of radio as well as the arrival of the personal computer age are engagingly presented. Paul Michael Garcia presents the often-fascinating theories in a curiously uniform gray and uninflected way. Fact and opinion are narrated evenly and without any real emotion or humor.
