Learn how to combat screen addiction and get your technology use in check. The urge to pick up our phones every few minutes has become a nervous twitch that shatters our time into shards too small to be present. Our addiction to tech leaves us feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In this book, professor Cal Newport shows us how to pair back digital distractions and live better with less technology. Introducing us to digital minimalists – the calm, happy people who can hold long conversations without furtive glances at their phones or obsessively document everything they eat – Newport reveals how to live more intentionally in our tech-saturated world.
