Call of the Active Mind

by Robert Rose-Coutre

The book traces brain passivity from TV and other effortless-electronic entertainment referencing scientific studies and experience. Since the introduction of Televisions into America's living room, most people receive tens of thousands of hours less development in every area of life. From the 1950s to today, TV has dramatically changed people's minds from active to passive. At that same time, spikes occurred in unhealthy behaviors and social ills that persist today, which correspond to the long-term effects of TV upon a population. The book connects the dots between the effects of TV with the unhealthy outcomes present today. The book clearly demonstrates that TV undermines brain function, then the book provides healthier paths to more active habits The unique voice instructs, inspires, and entertains the reader, providing much-needed information to regain a healthier society. The main themes are Active Mind versus Passive Mind Thoughtful travel through life, versus being entertained through life Being "fully human" versus being "only human" "We're all in this together" versus "I'm in it for me" The book answers the question that everyone is asking: What was life like before humanity stood still in front of screens, and stopped doing anything else?"
