The Erosion of Deep Literacy
Okay, this is an essay rather than a book… but it’s one that I’m tremendously glad to have found and will retain as a reference for years to come. It’s provocative, challenging, and damning toward social media trends and behaviors at-large, but raises points that would be difficult to refute. Both relatable on a personal level and empirically sound on a psychological level. Toward the latter half it makes some pretty bold claims that are conjecture at best, but nonetheless stand as fascinating thought experiments.
