More About Smarter Than You Think by Clive Thompson
 
 
 
Overview
A revelatory and timely look at how technology boosts our cognitive abilities making us smarter, more productive, and more creative than ever
It s undeniable technology is changing the way we think. But is it for the better? Amid a chorus of doomsayers, Clive Thompson delivers a resounding yes. In Smarter Than You Think, Thompson shows that every technological innovation from the written word to the printing press to the telegraph has provoked the very same anxieties that plague us today. We panic that life will never be the same, that our attentions are eroding, that culture is being trivialized. But, as in the past, we adapt learning to use the new and retaining what is good of the old. Smarter Than You Think embraces and extols this transformation, presenting an exciting vision of the present and the future."
