By @SimonCocking, image from pixabay we’ve reviewed a series of books, this is our 4th compilation of such round ups, see the previous three here. There are an increasing number of studies highlighting the value of taking time off-screen, off-line, to read and pursue an idea and a thought for longer than the time it takes before the in-browser notifications interrupt your train of thought. We know that we are all online far longer than we probably should be. Reading has now become a great, double edged sword, to break those ties sometimes, and to also learn at the same time. Here is the latest round up of interesting and useful books to consider reading.
