I’ve completed my next book, The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains, and the manuscript – actually, the wordprocessingscript – is with the publisher, W. W. Norton, for editing and production. (The cover image below is provisional. It will be used in the publisher’s catalog, but probably won’t be the actual cover of the book.) The Shallows is slated to be published in North America on June 1, 2010, and if you’re antsy you can preorder a copy from Amazon today. The English version of the book will also be published in the UK by Atlantic Books, and translations are currently in the works from Blessing in Germany, Seido Sha in Japan, Chungrim in Korea, Ediouro in Brazil, and CITIC in China.
