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 timely book, professor Cal Newport shows us how to pair back digital distractions and live better with less technology.

By following a thirty-day 'digital declutter' process, you'll learn to: u Rethink your relationship with social media u Prioritize 'high bandwidth' conversations over low quality text chains u Rediscover the pleasures of the offline worldTake back control from your devices and become a digital minimalist. ----------------'Digital Minimalism is the Marie Kondo of mobile phones' Evening Standard 'An eloquent, powerful and enjoyably practical guide to cutting back on screen time' The Times 'An urgent call to action for anyone serious about being in command of their own life' Ryan Holiday 'Cal's call for meaningful and engaged interactions is just what the world needs right now' Daniel Levitin, author of The Organised Mind
