A review of a great book in the LA Times: 'The Dumbest Generation' by Mark Bauerlein,0,3980465.story
The opening lines of the review hooked me pretty fast: "In the four minutes it probably takes to read this review, you will have logged exactly half the time the average 15- to 24-year-old now spends reading each day. That is, if you even bother to finish"
I have the feeling that, if you work in an academic library, you already know and have seen most of what the author is saying, but you might want to get the book to give weight to your reports to higher-ups.

I really appreciate my colleague, Brian Erb, for passing this link on to me.
