An extraordinary book. Simultaneously hilarious and deadly serious, Gambuto connects the dots to show how our time and attention got hijacked—and offers brilliant practical advice for seizing this unusual moment in history to build the saner, more joyful and meaningful lives that too often feel just out of reach.
— Oliver Burkeman, New York Times bestselling author of Four Thousand Weeks



Hardcover, e-book, audiobook
