First Reviews: The Distraction Addiction by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang Is "Fascinating"
Here are a few of the first reviews:
"It’s a thoughtful examination of the perils of our computing overdose and a historical overview of how technological advances change consciousness" —The Washington Post
"An elegant tour through current neuroscience and an examination of the nature of attention. Pang's tome is a valuable resource for anyone seeking to take control of his or her digital life, and it's a great primer on the interplay between mind and tech."—Publishers Weekly
"In a perceptive new study of how best to cope with the relentless interruptions presented by digital life, and its costly effects on our ability to stay focused, Alex Soojung-Kim Pang persuasively and carefully constructs a remedy he calls "contemplative computing."—San Francisco Chronicle
"He gets pretty Zen. I can see Keanu Reeves in the film version . . . Mr. Pang doesn’t want you to unplug. He wants you to achieve balance, to “reach flow,” to achieve a “mirrorlike mind."—The New York Times
In his keynotes, Pang shares the tools needed to redesign your online life, and construct a healthier, more balanced relationship with information technology. Drawing from his eight steps toward contemplative computing, Pang will help your organization to start using technology to quiet the constantly browsing, tab-opening, googling mind.
