About this book

Popular culture is often seen as nothing more than the production of endless entertainment - video games, computer games, hand-held games, movies and music on computers. It's common currency to talk about the declining standards of today's culture - to say that modern media is dumbing us down. In this complex and tautly written book, Steven Johnson presents a radical alternative: mass culture is making us smarter by consistently demanding more of our brains.
