Here’s a fresh take on what has already become a rather tiresome topic. Hamlet’s Blackberry: A Practical Philosophy for Building a Good Life in the Digital Age (Harper, 2010), by William Powers, makes the case that in our screen-obsessed age, we need to take time to disconnect from all our assorted gadgetry. What makes this analysis new? Powers takes us back to ancient, Elizabethan and Benjamin Franklin’s colonial times to note that there has always been a tension between the gadgets of the day and our need to periodically disassociate from them. Well researched and well written, this book is designed to help the reader “build a good life in the digital age.”
