Here is the topic for Week 4:
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
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
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!
HAVE YOU READ WORLDVIEW CHANGERS THIS YEAR?
PLEASE SHARE YOUR LINK!
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.
Yes, it’s easy to let it overflow

OMG, I love books about technology! I need this one. Well, I need the English version. 🙂
I know, too bad you’ll have to wait so long
Sounds like a brilliant book. I must have missed your original post but will head over right away.
My Worldview Changers post also has only one book.
Thanks for sharing
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.
It really did
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?
I don’t see why it would be bad

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!
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!).
I know, it’s scary sometimes to know details…
