Renowned media scholar Sherry Turkle investigates how a flight from conversation undermines our relationships creativity and productivity and why reclaiming face to face conversation can help us regain lost groundWe live in a technological universe in which we are always communicating And yet we have sacrificed conversation for mere connection Preeminent author and researcher Sherry Turkle has been studying digital culture for over thirty years Long an enthusiast for its possibilities here she investigates a troubling conseuence at work at home in politics and in love we find ways around conversation tempted by the possibilities of a text or an email in which we don’t have to look listen or reveal ourselves We develop a taste for what mere connection offers The dinner table fall. People of the 21st century have been conditioned into thinking that their digital devices are necessary These days nobody notices any that funeral selfies or fail videos are in extremely bad taste and digital tech is spilling way too far into the world People nowadays expect the instant gratification of a friendship but refuse to speak face to face or give up their phones AND sacrifice their digital crutches to meet a friend Reclaiming Conversation is spot on in explaining that with great power comes great responsibility and that perhaps this addiction to cell phones in just a short fifteen years is dangerous to society than we even want to imagine We know cell phones are bad for us let s face it Studies are proving that they cause all sorts of issues such as behaviors similar to drug addictions and gambling addictions an obsessive desire for instant attention and isolation from people who aren t behind a glowing screen Yet millions of people find it impossible to imagine life without these things and are willing to give up everything else for the sake of their Twitter profiles and YouTube channels This book is about how to get your voice back and reconnect with real people without the use of a cell phone tablet iPad or Kindle
