Head in the Cloud: Why Knowing Things Still Matters When Facts Are So Easy to Look Up

William Poundstone

In his latest book (after Are You Smart Enough to Work at Google?, 2012), Poundstone writes that most people don't know where Delaware is on a map or what Frank Lloyd Wright did for a living, how many calories are in a Big Mac or how many candles there are on a menorah, or which party controls Congress. How important is it to know these things, anyway? Can’t we just Google it? But letting computers think for us has its downside, so Poundstone helps us identify the types of knowledge that still matter and navigate the sea of endless information to stay truly informed. Head in the Cloud is an entertaining yet practical guide to succeeding in our culturally illiterate age.
