  • How to Thrive in the Digital Age - Tom Chatfield
    How to Thrive in the Digital Age - Tom Chatfield
    This book is so topical it's unreal: we are ALL slaves to our mobiles, emails tweets etc and this book recognises this, celebrates technology but equally our human quests. Highlighting our inability to moderate our usage of technology (see page 34 where Chatfield warns against us beginning to "turn the miracles into snares" is insight the extreme) this is a refreshingly truthful yet non scathing look at how technology is shaping our habits . . . .whether we like to admit it or not
