Early Reviewers June bonus batch: Rewired

The June 2010 Bonus batch of Early Reviewer book is up! We’re giving away 15 copies of Rewired: Understanding the iGeneration and the Way They Learn, by Dr. Larry Rosen. Check out Larry Rosen’s website and blog, Rewired: The Psychology of Technology, on Psychology Today.

I’ll be interviewing Dr. Rosen at the end of the month, about how available technology (iPods, video games, computers, cell phones) are affecting how we absorb information. Dr. Rosen’s book is primarily about how children’s brains are rewired by access to these technologies, how the way we’ve taught is not taking these rewired brains into account and what we can do about it.

I’m taking questions from LibraryThing members. If you’d like to ask Dr. Rosen a question, please post it here. If you’d like to purchase the book, you can get it on sale, through our friends at Book Depository for US$11.49 (and free shipping!)

To request this book, make sure to sign up for Early Reviewers. If you’ve already signed up, please check your mailing address and make sure it’s correct.

Then request away:

The deadline to request a copy is Friday, July 2 at 12PM EST.

Eligiblity: Publishers do things country-by-country, and this particular giveaway is only available to US and CA folks.

Thanks to Palgrave Macmillan!
