4oh4 - words not found: Maybe the Dumbest Generation Came Before Us

4oh4 - words not found: Maybe the Dumbest Generation Came Before Us:
"From the first few pages, The Dumbest Generation smacks of the worst kind of get-off-my-lawn resistance to change, and Bauerlein often bashes “pro-technology” commentators, as if the printed book reading that he exalts somehow wasn't a technology itself."


A well-researched book that quotes a bunch of studies but fails to understand the nature of cultural change.
This is a book review worth reading.
