The coauthor of the "best economics blog in the universe" offers a guide to success in a radically new hyper-networked age. The way we think is changing more rapidly than it has in a very long time. Not since the Industrial Revolution has a man-made creation--in this case, the World Wide Web--so greatly influenced the way our minds work and our human potential. Cowen argues that we are breaking down cultural information into ever-smaller tidbits, ordering and reordering them in our minds (and our computers) to meet our own specific needs. He explains why the coming world of Web 3.0 is good for us; why social networking sites such as Facebook are so necessary; what's so great about "tweeting" and texting; how education will get better; and why politics, literature, and philosophy will become richer.--From publisher description.

Read this because Cowen is a Bloomberg columnist I quite like. However found the book
a). Confusing as to message - i.e. autism not economics
b). Not particularly engaging.

"One of the most respected behavioral economists in the world ..." Never heard of the guy, Tyler Cowen, before I came across his name when I was researching what faculty positions the Koch brothers financed and endowed.
