For those whose phones, computers, or other devices are running their lives, how to turn around electronic addiction, or "ediction," and lead a more fulfilling life
"I can't talk now, I'm on the phone." Technology can be a wonderful thing, but it can also be a curse when it overwhelms us. This thought-provoking book grapples with just how addicted people have become to technology, and offers a set of ideas to help wean us off our technological drugs and lead more fulfilling lives. It looks briefly at how we got here, tests the reader on how serious their ediction is, and then offers real solutions, including rapid sequential tasking (instead of multitasking), communicating concisely, and using the best method of communication for the job, all while helping you retain your sense of humor and enthusiasm.
