Everything Bad…#1

Posted by & filed under Game Culture Class, Reading Response.

Everything Bad is Good for You seems to be a very informative book. Within the first 25 pages I am amazed at the thinking process of Steven Johnson. He made me realize things I never really noticed before. For example when he was talking about the actual downfall of reading books compare to playing video games. It amazed me the way he could take something so pure and righteous as reading books for fun and turn it on its head, saying that you could get the same, if not more, positive effects from games. He also doesn’t just disprove a topic. Instead he almost hears what the theory/topic is, tells you the upside of what they are saying, then says his side of the argument. This shows he is a very understanding man of many opinions. I think I will enjoy reading this book for the remainder of the semester.
