Stolen Focus

by Johann Hari

Review ★★★

A good primer on the attention deficit problems caused by modern technology. Some interesting psychology going on here, however I feel this book (like almost all others addressing the same issue) doesn't prescribe enough advice about balancing the benefits such technology brings with it—yes it distracts us but there is surely some middle ground between becoming a luddite, no? Overall, a decent book but, in my opinion, not ground-breaking.
