    I really liked this book. We have several teenagers and I can see the problems with technology abuse in their ability to concentrate as well as their 'real life' relationships. I believe we can all learn a great deal from this book regarding the use and/or overuse of technology. I know I will implement some of the principles for myself and my family. I also liked the novel as a good read.

    Rust and Kramer have created a believable and engaging story about a flawed, but decent man who learns invaluable lessons about what matters most both in the workplace and at home. The principles outlined in this book will make anyone consider carefully about the ways they use digital technology in their life. Following these principles can result in greater productivity, more rewarding relationships, and frankly, a better, more controlled use of technology.

    Even though I am a stay-at-home mom, I love to read motivational business books. After all, my entire occupation revolves around human resources (although my humans are shorter, dirtier and cry more often) and every day I am trying to find ways to be more efficient and considerate. This book has hands down the best advice for improving relationships at work or home in this age of constant technology. We all know we should probably look less at our screens and more at the faces of the people around us, but sometimes we don't know where to start. This book gives clear ideas on how to rule technology rather than letting technology rule us. Plus the writing is witty and makes it a quick read.

    This is an essential book in our modern era of digital distraction, and the book highlights an issue often ignored. The authors present the information in a memorable manner that rings all too true for most professionals. The lessons and principles identified will not only allow an enriched family life, but also a more productive and effective workplace.
