Fails the "non-obviousness" test with flying colors
on August 20, 2009
I was hoping this brief volume would provide some insight into the psychological underpinnings of today's instant-gratification, hyper-connected world (Cell Phones, SMS, RIM Blackberry's, iPhones etc.) and ramifications for the future. What I got instead were some commentary and observations that were so obvious, they could easily pass for a high school term paper. Any adult reading this book and finding the author's common-sense observations to be a revelation might instead want to consider remedial life skills training.
This book is much more hype/marketing than substance, and unless you want an unhealthy rise in blood pressure from the growing anger you'll feel with every page turn (at how you've been duped into spending your hard earned money on this garbage), my advice is to look elsewhere.
I decided to resign this book to where it would have the most impact and do the most good. After removing the hard cover, the remaining pages were placed in the mixed paper recycling bin.
