Dr. Luis Almeida, associate professor of communications at Lee University, had his book, TechnoModeration: Our Only Means Of Survival, published by Break Free Press.
The book is currently ranked number nine in an engineering research category, 39 in a computer science category, and 137 in artificial intelligence on Amazon’s kindle, and has been endorsed by Michal Michalko, creative expert and author of the best-seller “Thinkertoys.”
“Need is what led me to write this book,” said Dr. Almeida. “I am afraid that we, as a society, have gone out of control in terms of technology use. Most folks don’t realize that technology causes severe side effects on us and our living systems.”
The book is available for purchase both in paper and electronic formats here.
