Emily Rankin's colorful phrasing occasionally overpowers the content of this timely audiobook, but her cheery tone will help listeners absorb the unpleasant truth that smartphones are ruining our lives. Catherine Price's journalistic flair makes her sobering research findings and accessible advice move quickly. She shows how the smartphone industry has glued our brains to the almost unlimited supply of stimulation, distractions, and addictive social content these devices provide. The problem is that smartphones control our focus, robbing us of our ability to decide for ourselves what we look at and how we organize it into broader patterns in our long-term memory. More than a simple warning, this audiobook is full of helpful insights about how we engage with the world in the age of technology, and how we can keep that technology from diminishing intentional living.
