If you’ve ever tried to reduce the amount of food you tuck into, you’ll recognize the metaphor that runs through The Information Diet by Clay A. Johnson. Just as many of us eat too much, many of us stagger under the weight of largely meaningless, trivial, or unreliable data.
All day and night, we allow the Internet, e-mail, text messages, cable television, radio — you name the source — to take up our available attention and blunt our judgment. This month, Windows Secrets subscribers can download an excerpt: Chapter 10, “How to Consume,” in which Johnson gives us wise and practical advice for managing the intake.
