Waterstones Says

Written with clarity and undeniable persuasion, Dobelli’s punchy polemic posits the idea that we would all be both healthier and happier if we shook off our addiction to the news.

In 2013 Rolf Dobelli stood in front of a roomful of journalists and proclaimed that he did not read the news. It caused a riot. Now he finally sets down his philosophy in detail. And he practises what he preaches: he hasn't read the news for a decade.

Stop Reading the News is Dobelli's manifesto about the dangers of the most toxic form of information - news. He shows the damage it does to our concentration and well-being, and how a misplaced sense of duty can misdirect our behaviour.

From the author of the bestselling The Art of Thinking Clearly, Rolf Dobelli's book offers the reader guidance about how to live without news, and the many potential gains to be had: less disruption, more time, less anxiety, more insights. In a world of increasing disruption and division, Stop Reading the News is a welcome voice of calm and wisdom.

“A convincing manifesto”

Stop Reading the News is a little book with plenty of reasons packed in as to why the news is the root of all evil. That said, many of the reasons seemed to echo each other and each short chapter (2-4 pages) ended... More
