About this deal

And Eyal can make people who get distracted by adversarial design less inclined to demand more from their technologies, and more inclined to demand “superpowers” of themselves that their all-too-human limitations render them unable to meet.

In the future, there will be two kinds of people in the world: those who read and apply the principles in Indistractable and those who wish they had read it sooner. When we consider our children, how can they flourish if they can't concentrate long enough to apply themselves?It’s a claim that, in any event, seems unfalsifiable – can’t any desire for change be framed as “dissatisfaction” with some status quo? I liked that Eyal admitted to falling victim to the dreaded time stealing monster himself and shares the solutions that helped him to overcome this. Five years after publishing Hooked , Eyal reveals distraction's Achilles' heel in his groundbreaking new book. His writing on technology, psychology and business appears in the Harvard Business Review, The Atlantic, TechCrunch, and Psychology Today.

While there are definitely some benefits to the short-and-sweet approach—including bring easy to digest, quick to read, and full of memorable sound bites—in this instance it felt light on content and substance, much like a drawn out blog post. Completely boring and basic instructions on how to cut down distraction (remove apps from your phone!And the lessons in each chapter mostly rehash generic productivity advice - plan your day, set aside enough time for family, etc.
