Here is the topic for Week 4:
Worldview Changers
hosted by Rebekah @ She Seeks Nonfiction

One of the greatest things about reading nonfiction
is learning all kinds of things about our world
which you never would have known without it.
There’s the intriguing, the beautiful, the appalling, and the profound.
What nonfiction book (or books) has impacted the way you see the world
in a powerful way?
Do you think there is one book that everyone needs to read
for a better understanding of the world we live in? 

No hesitation here, THE one book I read this year, that was a MAJOR eye opener on our (digital) world is

L'Enfer numérique

Click on the cover to read my review in English. I included a lot of details and the topics covered.
Here is my overall verdict:
VERDICT: A major eye-opener and a punch in the stomach: how I am polluting the world with my use of internet and electronics, and what I can do to limit the problem. Probably the most inspiring book I will read in 2022.

And the good news is that it’s supposed to finally come out in English on September 4, 2023 by Scribe Us (pushed back from March!!)
336 pages, Paperback
ISBN
9781957363011 (ISBN10: 1957363010)
The English cover doesn’t seem available yet, but the marketing page is here. with good details on the book as well.
“A gripping new investigation into the underbelly of digital technology, which addresses the pressing question of the carbon footprint it leaves behind. In a sort of news thriller, the author reveals not only how costly the virtual world is, but how damaging it is to the environment.”

This needs to be on your pre-order list!

  1. Sounds a really relevant read and I’m glad it will be available in English too. You’ve definitely reminded me to tackle my unwieldy inbox and bring it back into control. It was until last year but things got out of hand far too quickly.

  2. Sounds like it did a lot of impression on you. And a worthy theme as well. I guess we all start to more and more reflect on how we use things in our daily life.

  3. I can’t say I’ve read much non fiction this year, or other than newspapers indeed much before then, so would find this an impossible challenge – sorry. In fact I tend to go for NF that appeals and thus doesn’t run counter to the opinions I have in politics, climate change, or morality. Is that bad of me?

  4. This sounds like it would really be a world changer if people take up the message. My choice was a psychology work that changed how I think about family and individuality. We are all more connected than we think. No need for social media!

  5. Glad it’s coming out in English and I’ve added it to my wishlist! I hope it won’t stop all my usage of things (I’ve never read that book about how dreadful salmon farming is for the same reason!).
