It’s a great book about how people will have to be much more “right-brain” in order to get ahead. While I did not intend this post to be a book review – there are much better reviewers than me (as in here, here and here) – I did want to point to it because it is very insightful, and full of interesting facts and links.
Another example from the book that will calm many parents with video game-playing kids is when he says:
“Indeed, a growing stack of research is showing video games can sharpen many of the skills that are vital in the Conceptual Age (that’s the right-brain thing). For instance, an important 2003 study in the journal Nature found an array of benefits to playing video games. On tests of visual perception, game players scored 30% higher than non-players.”
