You Are What You Read
By Debbie Webb, Librarian

bookcoverHAMLET'S BLACKBERRY
By William Powers
HM851.P688 2010


This book is a deconstruction of the notion that total connectedness brings happiness or even productivity and a concise guide to navigating social technology with sacrificing the personal or professional interactions that draw us here in the first place. Powers argues that space (from connectedness) and balance (within it) are the most integral tenets to maintaining sanity within the increasingly plugged-in world.
