Finalist for the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in General Nonfiction: “Nicholas Carr has written a Silent Spring for the literary mind.”―Michael Agger, Slate“Is Google making us stupid?” When Nicholas Carr posed that question, in a celebrated 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?

Nicholas Carr is the author of The Shallows, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, and The Glass Cage, among other books. Former executive editor of the Harvard Business Review, he has written for The Atlantic, the New York Times, and Wired. He lives in Boulder, Colorado.From AudioFile:
Expanding on his ATLANTIC MONTHLY cover story, Nicholas Carr debates whether our Internet use is sacrificing both our ability to read long, complex material and to think deeply, with reflection. The author takes a historically thoughtful, logical, and neuroscientific perspective. The histories 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. At times, the narration approximates the speech of the disembodied computer HAL from 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, which the author mentions. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
