The awareness grows! More and more books seem to be published about the topic of internet use, joining Adam Alter and Nicholas Carr.
It’s always a big sign that a topic is slowly arriving at the center of society when you can find translated books or new books in your native language that isn’t English in your local library or book shop. When the topic is so relevant there are multiple books in your shop of choice, and you can feel like you can stop forcing people to read English who don’t want to or can’t. The relief of getting a fringe topic to be popular enough to be accessible in your language!
Here for example:
Manfred Spitzer - Eine Smartphone Epidemie
Jaron Lanier - Zehn Gründe, warum du deine Social Media Accounts sofort löschen musst
I didn’t read them yet, but I felt like sharing this because it is another little sign that the journey is going forward and that the time has come to really talk about this. I think most of Manfred Spitzer’s books are NoSurf related and present information we know from Carr, Alter and Newport as well, just from the view of a German psychologist and other evidence. The above mentioned one is the newest release.
If you ever see news books or books in another language about NoSurf topics please share!
