An opinion rather than an authorityRezension aus dem Vereinigten Königreich vom 22. September 2015
Lately I've become interested in the idea of deliberately disconnecting from the world occasionally to see if it helps ease the feelings of overwhelm and constant bombardment from all the 'stuff' that it seems I need to know about. However, I've realised that it's easier said than done, so I wondered if this book might have further insights on how to go about it and perhaps some motivating information on how tech/being constantly connected affects us. I think James has good motives and is trying to do exactly this, but I was left with the feeling that this book is rather like decaffeinated coffee. Something was lacking but it took me a while to put my finger on what. It's a short read, which is good (and therefore the price was low risk), but more than once I'd read a page on my kindle and feel that it was an entire page making the same point. Perhaps this is indicative of his passion to emphasise a point and ensure the message is across, but I felt it could easily be cut down and lose nothing. (It could also do with a proofread.) I also didn't get the sense of an authority talking to me. There were no hard facts and it came across very much as an opinion - 'this is what I think you should do'. I disagree with the suggestion of starting with a 24-hour detox and then later adding shorter daily periods such as half hour stretches at a regular time when you're offline. I would find it much easier to do this the other way around - start with shorter periods and gradually grow them. And that is merely my opinion, equally with no facts. I'd have loved more detail on what effects being uber-connected (or not) has on the brain or body or whatever - in fact I found something more about this in a blog post elsewhere. But in fairness, perhaps that was never his intent and could be just that I'd misinterpreted what the book would cover. So overall - happy that I read it and even happier that I didn't need to spend more time reading it. A good effort at something we would perhaps benefit from thinking about more, but for me this could have been a blog post(s) in terms of content.
Good AdviceRezension aus den Vereinigten Staaten vom 2. Mai 2017
Well written, succinct and timeous book on putting away the pc, putting down the phone and living and enjoying the present more. A good start to partner other reading such as C Crook's Joy of Missing Out
