This book has a similar theme to the more well known author Nicholas Carr (The Shallows) that is how computers and particularly the internet are changing our lifes.

Don't be put off by her phrase "dark age". Reading this book provides further support for taking care of our precious humanity now and in the distant future for those who will follow.
