The Shallows

by Nicholas Carr

Review ★★

Repetitive, exaggerated, and doubtless will seem incredibly dated in a few decades (or less). Despite having a comprehensive knowledge of the incremental improvements to intellectual technologies, and the benefits they bring, the author seems to think 280 pages of repeating that "this time is different" is a good idea. Sadly, any brilliance in this book is derived from the quotes of others and I did not feel this was a worthwhile read.
