  • Book Review: The Distracted Mind: Ancient Brains in a High-Tech World by Adam Gazzaley, Larry D. Rosen

    Book Review: The Distracted Mind: Ancient Brains in a High-Tech World by Adam Gazzaley, Larry D. Rosen

    My review of this book is going to sound a bit negative, but my regard for it is not, hence the four-stars. The book is nicely divided in three sections.
