Screened In: The Art of Living Free in the Digital Age (英語) ペーパーバック – 2020/3/8
"The game of life was thrown a major curve ball when the first iPhone was released in 2007. If loneliness, anxiety, and depression are the indicators--as Anthony Silard compellingly makes the case, with a raft of largely unknown research to back him up--then most of us are striking out. If you want to get on base in the field of meaningful, supportive human relationships, this is the one book you can't do without. Buy it and adapt!"
--Marshall Goldsmith, New York Times bestselling author of
What Got You Here Won't Get You There
"Once we've had the honesty to admit we're hooked on our screens, we can make the courageous choice to free ourselves. Screened In is a clear, strong, and important book for our times that shines a fascinating and revealing light on our societal addiction, and offers inspiration and practical strategies to reconnect with this creative, vibrant, and precious life."
--Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance
"Screened In is a sharp, readable, and savvy guide to making the most of those weapons of mass distraction in our pockets. Silard shows why we are so addicted to screens and--even more important--how we can kick the habit to live richer lives. Put down your phone and read it!"
--Carl Honoré, author of the international bestseller In Praise of Slow
"Ever since the first iPhone was released in 2007, lamentations, protests, and cries of despair about our increasingly disconnected world have been everywhere and workable solutions have been nowhere--until Screened In. It's an essential book for reducing screen time and embracing authentic relationships in the digital age."
--Harriet Lerner, New York Times bestselling author of The Dance of Anger
"Armed with a prodigious volume of research, Screened In invites the reader to question their fundamental assumptions about how much technology and social media usage is safe. Through our device obsessions, we are creating a very lonely world! Dr. Silard provides us with a fascinating and well-researched book that will help us to end this addictive cycle."
--Philip Zimbardo, former President, American Psychological Association, and
New York Times bestselling author of The Lucifer Effect
"Although the Earth is not spinning any faster than a hundred years ago, the world is coming at us faster. We suffer from not just information overload, but emotional overload from never getting a break. Anthony Silard has captured the subversive and damaging aspects of the gift of the technological age. The research is clear--it causes us to be on alert and defensive all of the time. It also fools us into thinking we are more connected when in fact we are more socially isolated. Fortunately, as Tony suggests, the remedies are within your grasp--if you wish to use them. Ignore his message at your peril!"
--Richard Boyatzis, New York Times bestselling co-author of Primal Leadership

And casting my vote. so finally I decided I could now just let it all go and wait. It would be OK
