Neuroscientist Daniel Levitin has written a book, The Organized Mind, on how to survive the information age and it’s obviously hit a nerve. It’s no. 4 on The Globe and Mail’s non-fiction best-seller list (hardcover division). But surely if you’re serious about getting a grip on your information flow, the last thing you want to do is add to the glut with a 500-page book. Why not wait for the inevitable magazine article? There’s bound to be a 10-point list. Or to put it another way: I might buy the book – if it were 200 pages shorter.
