Overview


Over the past decade, 24-7 connectivity has given us not only convenience and fun but worries about privacy, intrusions into family time, and new compulsions — from shopping to tweeting and cute cat watching. Anne Katherine, one of the first authors to bring healthy boundary setting to a mass audience, has now written a book on how to do this with technology. Rather than rejecting online life, Katherine shows readers how to make social media, smartphones, and other innovations work for, rather than against, them. Readers learn to protect themselves online — from predators and data mining as well as from time-devouring friends and acquaintances — with an emphasis on preserving and optimizing meaningful personal connections. Anyone who has ever wondered if their cute little gadget was actually an enemy invader will welcome Katherine’s strategies for ensuring that “your life is truly your own.”

Boundaries in an Overconnected World is a must-read — especially for those who have never known a world without Facebook and text messaging!”
Christiane Northrup, MD, ob-gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers The Wisdom of Menopause and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

“Although technology has brought many advances to our lives, Anne Katherine is quick to remind us of the risks and vulnerabilities each of us must be aware of in order to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our privacy. Her book is a detailed guide of how-tos for setting and maintaining boundaries. A must-read for anyone using a computer or smartphone.”
Marty Lerner, PhD, CEO of the Milestones Eating Disorders Program

“Timely and valuable. On the subject of boundaries, Anne Katherine is the guru! This book addresses the new layer of concerns in setting boundaries in this age of social networking. She shows us how to conduct ourselves from the outside in and the inside out.”
