Book 18

18. Everything Bad is Good for You by Steven Johnson

This book discusses popular culture such as television, film, videogames and the internet and how despite popular belief these things are actually good for cognitive development. The author discusses how television shows are much more complex today and create more engagement and mental challenges than shows of the past. Video games too create cognitive challenges and much more paticipatory than one might think. I give the book an 8 out of 10.
