My thoughts on: My Tech-wise life by Amy/Andy Crouch
Like many books directed toward technology and/or social media, this book looks at how technology has affected society. This book has a different voice and tone than most. The primary author is a young female (19). She grew up in a time where technology was always present. Growing up, the author's family had placed boundaries around technology. Now she is writing from a unique perspective. The book also has an interesting dynamic where the father responds to his daughter's insights about technology (upon researching, it appears the father wrote a similar book directed towards families). Overall this book was a decent read. I agree with the conclusions that are made. I also appreciate the suggestions and questions the author poses concerning personal technology usage. My only critique, and this is a critique on all books relating to technology, is that the message feels negative. These books often focus on the harm social media and internet usage has on people. I think there can also be a more prominent focus on the benefits these tools provide.
