really liked it
Read in April, 2012

Far more academic than I thought a popular author would write, but I suppose his professor status at NYU should have given me that clue.

I was especially interested in his later thoughts about how kids think something is missing with a screen if a mouse isn't included, and that any media that doesn't allow you to interact may not be worth consuming at all.

Give this to your academic types.
