Maryanne Wolf’s book "Proust and the Squid" and its look at “neuroscience and the way intensive and frequent reading wires the brain for more complex thought . . . is very germane to the concerns and questions raised at the faculty retreat about the willingness and ability of our digitally primed students to engage and comprehend longer texts. . . .   and so raises the question of whether we are headed for devolution if reading continues to decline.”
