Review

The advert for this book could read, "This is your brain on technology." Whether you are a digital native or digital immigrant, technology can be friend and foe. As we become more connected, the authors recommend practicing the art of face-to-face communication, including exercising emotional intelligence so these skills don't become lost with increased use of technology. Topics covered include techie addiction, online etiquette, burnout, and research supporting the altering effect of technology on our brains and our lives. The glossary may be helpful for new users of technology and the end notes are truly noteworthy. (I like how they linked a specific clause to the source, making it easier to locate in the text.) We really don't know how our brains will change in generations to come. iBrain suggests tools for managing the impact of digital technology on our brains now.
