Reviews

A boldly reactionary book... Its thesis is simple and persuasive. The things that we do have a physical effect on our brains... What looks like feast, Carr argues, may be closer to famine.. The internet is a distraction machine. -- Sam Leith * Sunday Times *
Unhurried... even-handed... Carr constantly emphasises the fact that screen technologies are neither evil nor miraculous in their effects on the human mind... What is certain, however, is that our minds will change... A worthy illustration that books do indeed enable deep reflection. -- Susan Greenfield * Literary Review *
The most readable overview of the science and history of human cognition to date... Carr draws some chilling inferences. * The Economist *
An elegantly written cry of anguish... Hair-raising. -- John Harris * The Times *
