Dr. Mari Swingle's new book provides the clear scientific proof to back up what we've all been suspecting: we're all subjects in a massive experiment to see what "i-Technology" (video games, social media, cell phones and a host of other screen-based devices) will do to our brains. The evidence is in, and it's frightening. In a witty and entertaining style, Dr. Mari (as she's known to her patients) walks us through the science on how rapidly our brains are changing after 100,000 years of slow development, what the dangers are, and the positive steps we can all take to embrace technology while still saving our brains, and steering Humanity's future in a much more human direction.
