Is book making us stupied?. My reflections on this is that you cant easy just answere yes or no. Research shows that reading books develop your literal skills and experiences, it also stimulate thinking, fantast,y learnng to know other situations, feeling, other kind of mindsets etc. With reading you come into situations maybe you not have the possibllut to come close to otherwise. I wil say each media oral, written, books, newspapers, internet, film, music, etc can both be used in positive ways, but can also be abused. There is however one thing with text, Journals, books etc that thre is along production time, so when it is printed, it might be somewhat old, but the user need to be aware of this of course
