According to Google's Chairman Eric Schmidt, we create more information every two days than we did throughout human history up to 2003. How can you cope with information overload? This insightful book makes a compelling case that information overload doesn't actually exist - the real problem is information overconsumption. Just as junk food can lead to obesity, junk information can lead to a new form of ignorance. The Information Diet provides a framework for consuming information in a healthy way, by showing you what to look for, what to avoid, and how to be selective. In the process, author Clay Johnson explains the role information has played throughout history, and why following his prescribed diet is essential in today's information age. With this book, you'll learn: * The relationship between power, authority, and information since the dawn of the first major information-technology boom * How people react to information consumption, according to cognitive science and neuroscience findings * How the new, information-abundant society is suffering consequences * What constitutes a healthy information diet and how you can get started
