The new age presses hard upon us, as technology alters our modes of communication, our expectations, our minds, and perhaps our very souls. This book, whose title plays almost shockingly on the words of W.B. Yeats, exemplifies such changes. Kennedy (psychology, emeritus, Loyola Univ.) collects more than 100 of his blogs, posted at the National Catholic Reporter, and other places around the Web. Readers should not expect the full and often embarrassing self-revelations found in blogs of the under-thirty set (and the unselfconscious of any age). These "blogs" have much more in common with newspaper columns, speaking intelligently of current events and the quotidian, with the wisdom that comes with experience and wide reading. For most collections.
