'Engaging advice, brilliant solutions' Mark Manson, author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck `A primer for anyone seeking to keep their focus in a world seemingly designed for us to lose our way. I gobbled up the advice in here without checking Twitter at all' Matt Haig, author of Notes on a Nervous Planet What would life look like if we followed through on our intentions? A former Stanford lecturer and behavioural designer, Nir Eyal spent over a decade researching the psychology behind habit-forming products. The result was his international bestseller, Hooked. Now, the man who identified the habit has delivered the cure. Eyal describes how to manage the discomfort that drives distraction, and explains why solving the problem is not as simple as swearing off your devices. With a four-step, research-backed model, Indistractable lays bare the secret to getting the best out of technology, without letting it get the best of you. Empowering and optimistic, this is the book that will allow you to control your time and attention - and live the life you really want.
