Mini Book Review: The Information Diet
The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Consumption by Clay A. Johnson
Somewhat disappointing with regards to the actual idea of going on an information diet. I learned a lot about actual diets (and food and the food business), since he's constantly referring to them. There's a brief chapter on how to go on an information diet yourself before he goes off on another tangent again.
There's some background information on why news are delivered the way they are and about the risks of ending up in an information bubble as a result. The book is very US-centric in places, although that helps us foreigners somewhat in understanding what's going on across the pond.
Summary: Informative? Yes. Helpful? Not really.
