Technophobia The psychological impact of Information TechnologyTechnophobia The psychological impact of Information Technology

In his book The Design of Everyday Things, Donald Norman describes how technology enables increasing functionality which in turn increases
complexity. He cites the example of a digital watch having far more functions than a traditional analog watch (stop-watch, alarm,

Being a Refugee: Learning and Identity: A longitudinal study of refugees in the UKBeing a Refugee: Learning and Identity: A longitudinal study of refugees in the UK

Being a Refugee offers a picture of the lives of refugees before and after they arrive in the UK. The people featured are all highly qualified professionals and, like all refugees, their personal stories are shaped by their unique biographical, cultural and social backgrounds.

Yet each narrative is lived within the broad social template of what it means to be a refugee in contemporary Britain. And their experiences as refugees have significant implications for policy and practice.

Their Eyes Were Watching God

Their Eyes Were Watching God (Audio, wma)Their Eyes Were Watching God (Audio, wma)

The only thing that could possibly make this book any more extraordinary is having it being read TO you by the inimitable, iconic actress Ruby Dee. As with any performance she gives, she puts every molecule of her being onto the screen, the stage, and God bless us all, the page. She gives such dimension, richness and texture to the book, you feel like you are sitting on a country porch in Eatonville listening to her. Also helpful to listen WHILE reading for help with the dialect that may be difficult to understand for some. This is one of the very best audiobooks you will ever hear. Enjoy!
