True Story Book Club
Tuesday, April 10
True Story Book Club: The Shallows, by Nicholas Carr. “Is Google making us stupid?” When Nicholas Carr posed that question in an Atlantic Monthly cover story, he tapped into a well of anxiety about how the Internet is changing us. He also crystallized one of the most important debates of our time: As we enjoy the Net’s bounties, are we sacrificing our ability to read and think deeply? Part intellectual history, part popular science, and part cultural criticism, this is a book that will forever alter the way we think about media and our minds.
