How technology removes our choices -- The origins of technology addiction -- Online technology and love -- Online technology and work -- Online technology and play -- Online technology and life -- How can we make technology healthier for humans? -- A vision for a more humane tech -- A personal epilogue.
Delves into the unhealthy behaviours around technology that have become our normal state of existence. Acknowledges that tech offers us untold benefits, but is far from a benign device. Advises it manipulates our attitudes, robs us of our time and free will, and affects our relationships with each other. Looks at how we can make tech work for us and not the other way around.
