Weiner en sevdiğim yazarlardan biri! Bu kitapları okuyun!
I'd seen the author of this book speaking on a documentary about how bad people tend to be at multitasking, no matter how much we wish to believe differently. That appearance, coupled with the title of the book, made me think his work would be more about the effects on concentration as a result of all this technology we're exposing kids to in the interest of "up to date education." The book, instead, is a (very long, very in depth) study of why we should spend more time and money on the basics of education than on keeping up with ever-changing technology. So, my review isn't entirely fair, because I'm judging the book against what I expected rather than what it was intended to be, I realize. I don't disagree with the author's assertions, and the book was well-written as far as I read (I read the first, oh, 5 chapters? Then skimmed the rest to make sure the topic I was hoping for wasn't buried inside), but it wasn't what I was looking for, so I didn't finish it. And I won't feel guilty for that. ;-) (But this has spawned the creation of my started-then-quit-reading list!)
