“Robert Rose-Coutré is interested in what television has done to human society and the human brain since it became omnipresent in our lives in the mid-20th century. His book Call of the Active Mind summarizes what he has learned from years of studying research into this interesting topic. Rather than being a scientist, he’s a science popularizer. His goal is to make all that research accessible to the average reader.

He reports that much of what is wrong with contemporary society can be traced to the mind-deadening effects of TV. He tells us that in the first 24 years of life, people spend more than 25,000 hours passively watching television. Passive watching replaces active living. That leads to psychological and physical damage.

He sketches a scary scenario, but it’s not entirely bleak. Two-thirds of this 250-page book cover suggestions for reversing those trends, and, yes, they do involve turning off the TV.

Rose-Coutré includes a 10-page bibliography and extensive endnotes so that you can follow up on his research if you want to. … It may provide you with the information you need to back up something your intelligence has already been telling you.”

Call of the Active Mind

I enjoyed reading this book. I agree about the importance of living an active lifestyle. The points were supported with lots of references and examples. It was not only about TV and younger generations as I had expected. It covered the affects of social changes since the 1950s. It helps you understand the factors that led to the way America is today. It gets to the bottom of why so many people today are dissatisfied with their lives: in family, society, national life, personal fulfillment, and careers. It could also be considered a useful self-help book, as it sheds light on these topics with suggestions for improvement. Although it does not speak about politics, I can see how the book would apply to that area as well.
