The Information Diet; Clay Johnson

The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious ConsumptionThe Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Consumption by Clay A. Johnson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

As with most of these types of books, the ideas are fairly obvious and hammered home. In this case, the heavy-handedness is mitigated by his comparison of an information diet to a food diet - the analogy works well and can help convince people that perhaps living within an echochamber with far too many voices saying the same thing is not a good thing (for them or society). My biggest quibble is that a print version will not be as helpful as a e-version because of all the links provided.
