....But only in the sense that a fish is better than a bicycle. Need food - eat a fish, need effective personal transport get a bike. I read a newspaper article today which was essentially a regurgitated press release puffing up a new book which claims that even old fogies get more benefit from the internet than books.
Usual story - the scientific approach was the ever-popular "let's look at which bits of the brain light up". Since we are essentially clueless on the details of brain function it's a bit like using television adverts as an experimental tool for understanding how electronics work.
...Anyway back to the point. You can use the internet to enhance your enjoyment and understanding of books and I have no doubt that whilst you are doing that you will light up similar areas of the brain involved in reading and understanding text.
Can books enhance your enjoyment and understanding of the internet. No they can't which neatly completes the circular argument that if your main source of interest is the internet then the internet is better than books.
The JustEnoughTechnology recommendation is to use the internet as one of a number of tools for interacting with this wonderful world and the people on it
