Summary, etc.: A decade ago, Wolf's Proust and the Squid revealed what we know about how the brain learns to read and how reading changes the way we think and feel. Now, in a series of letters, Wolf describes her concerns-- and hopes-- about how digital mediums may be changing our brains. Wolf herself has found that her ability to read deeply has been impacted as she becomes increasingly dependent on screens. What could this mean for our future? -- adapted from jacket
