This book is a gift that keeps on giving

Read this book if you know you want to shift your attention away from screens and onto your real life. The 30 day system gives you enough time to make real changes in your habits. This book isn't about never using technology again but it is about using technology more mindfully and not letting the apps decide how much time you spend glued to a screen. This is the only nonfiction book I ever loan out to people I've bought it more than once so I can continue to share it with my friends.

quick read, actionable items

The first half reads like a long form news piece, with lots of data. The second half is a 30 day plan to reclaim your attention. Despite the title, it's not about getting rid of your phone entirely, it's about recognizing unhealthy patterns and choosing what gets your attention. I have not done the full 30 day plan, but this taught me to pay attention to Digital Wellbeing, turn off app notifications, clear off my distracting home screen, etc. Lots of good tips. You have to be willing to set aside your defensiveness about addictive behaviors, though.

Too Condescending for Me.

Some of the facts were interesting, but I didn't like the tone of the book. In my opinion, it could have been a blog post.
