There's great value in the religious tradition of a weekly Sabbath, says filmmaker Tiffany Shlain, who performs this timely invitation with a powerful blend of intellectual confidence and respect for her listeners. As she delivers insights and suggestions that sound deeply true, the author's sensibilities and rock-solid vocals combine to create a presentation that is both thought-provoking and viscerally satisfying. Her message is focused largely on getting away from our screens. She argues that technology is wonderful but leads to habits that are not good for us. She makes the case that a weekly 24-hour screen vacation is the kind of ritual we need to reconnect with ourselves and the people we love. References to cultural history and personal growth wisdom contribute to making this a must-hear audio for the digital age. T.W. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
