Summary
"Recent technological advances--from dating apps to artificial insemination, from "smart" phones to portable computers that can instantly search the World Wide Web for information, and from robots performing surgery to cars driving themselves--once remarkable, have become an unremarkable part of our lives. The team of authors of this book asks, "How are they changing us?" We all recognize that these innovations have altered our lives, often making them easier, but it is also important to ask if we have lost anything while we have gained from them. The authors of How Technology Is Changing Human Behavior: Issues and Benefits show that human behaviors and thinking skills are rapidly being reprogrammed by technology, with even more developments on the horizon sure to further alter our future and shape our identity."--
