APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
As our ties to technology become more powerful every day, productivity expert Cal Newport (author of A World Without Email) argues that it’s possible to combat all that potential intrusion and distraction. His solution isn’t exactly anti-tech, but rather about setting boundaries and reclaiming personal meaning. Read by award-winning narrator Will Damron, with an introduction by the author, Digital Minimalism is a guide to rebuilding our relationship with tech, including the option of a month-long digital detox. Newport shares a structured set of approaches that’s fairly manageable, touching on everything from cumulative exhaustion to the increasingly competitive attention economy.
Must-read for everyone
Very much thought provoking book that has transformed how I perceive social media, and use it.
