i-Minds (Inkwater Press, 2015) scrutinizes the impact the ubiquitous i-products (mobile phones, computers and gaming devices) have on our world. As promotional materials explain, "weaving through the hard and soft sciences, including history, research, and popular literature; media and industry hype; sociology and social psychology; personal observations and tales from over 18 years of clinical practice and research"; this book "explores the influence of i-technology on children and families, friends and lovers, work and learning, development and brain function as influenced by our ever changing world and the technologies within.";
