Book Review - Irresistible

Irresistible

The Rise of Addictive Technology and the Business of Keeping Us Hooked
By: Adam Alter

Book Reivew

Everybody at least needs to think through this; however, the book feels a little sensationalistic. Also, it has way too many stories for my liking, but I grant that some will love it for that reason. Adam Alter ends the book with some helpful suggestions for folks to handle their compulsive behavior with technology. While you may not feel like this directly applies to you, you very likely know somebody who it would apply to. Some people don't event realize what has happened to them, and perhaps, this book will wake them up. I do wonder if Adam Alter tacitly downplays the challenges of previous generations as he deals with the challenges of this generation.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
