Book Review: How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy

How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention EconomyHow to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy by Jenny Odell
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

You can sum up this book in a tweet: Put down the phone; turn off the computer. Pay attention to the physical (nature, people, and in her case - birds) all around you, right there in your own backyard.

Accomplishing this requires a significant application of discipline, a point that she mentions but spends too little time exploring.

I felt there were too many tangents that strayed away from the point: resisting the attention economy.
