Product description

Review

Indistractable zeroes in on one of the biggest challenges of our time: managing our attention. Nir Eyal provides the most practical and realistic approach yet to balancing technology with well-being

Exactly what most of us need in order to focus on what is important, rather than the dazzling, illuminated, unsatisfying distractions of modern life

Nir Eyal understands the modern technologies of attention from the inside, and in this practical and timely book, he shares the secrets to regaining, and sustaining, the capacity to focus on what matters. Your brain (not to mention your spouse, your kids, and your friends) will thank you for reading it

The best guide I've read for reclaiming our attention, our focus and our lives

This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to preserve islands of focused attention - and good personal relationships - at a time when digital devices pull us away from our priorities and our loved ones. I'm putting many of Eyal's ideas into practice

In a world filled with noise, Indistractable provides a framework that will deliver the focus you need to get results

This book has done more to change the way I see the world than anything I've read in the past several years

Being indistractable is the essential skill for our time. Skip this book at your peril. My advice is this: Read it. Live it. Repeat

Now there's a way we can regain our ability to focus. It's been created by behavioural designer Nir Eyal, and he should know: in a former life, he designed some of the techniques that Silicon Valley companies use to make addictive products. And he's spent five years fine-tuning the concentration strategies that can make you more productive (Red)

As a lifelong procrastinator, I'm painfully aware of how much productivity-related advice there is out there and how little of it is actually helpful. Indistractable is an exception --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

From the bestselling author who taught us how to get users Hooked on technology, an indispensable guide to how we can combat our addiction to technology and master the skill of the century: becoming indistractable. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is GOLD
By Fiaz on 1 October 2019
The book is gold. It has everything you need to put your time to good use. "Indistractable" helps increase your productivity, gives a practical solution to move away from every form of distraction and habits that stop your growth. Nir Eyal has already proven his theory in his previous book "Hooked" which talks about habit-forming products and now with Indistractable, he has shown an easy way to choose life over addicting Dings and Pings. I'm glad I bought this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book if you want to reclaim your Focus and Attention
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 October 2019
This is a great and most importantly practical book which helps you understand why you get distracted and what you can do about it.

In today's world, everyone is using technology in some way or form. The problem people have is that Technology ends up using them. Nir Eyal knows how technology can be used to capture people's attention. His previous book - Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products is still a #1 Best Seller in the Amazon.co.uk Sales and Marketing Research Category even though it was written in 2014. It shows people how they can build habit-forming products and covers some great stuff on user psychology.

Whilst this is great for companies who want people to consume their products, it is not great for the individuals who just can't navigate this world of distraction. Enter, this book which is there to support in building skills that help become indistractable. This becomes and extremely important skill which people need but they haven't quite figured out how to.

This book has a different take and doesn't advocate a digital detox or even mindfulness and meditation. It helps you actually understand the triggers causing your behaviour and provides a very realistic way of being able to set the path to becoming indistractable.

The core of the book discusses the key methods of becoming Indistractable:

- Master INTERNAL Triggers
- Make time for TRACTION
- Hack Back EXTERNAL Triggers
- Prevent DISTRACTION with Pacts

Each chapter is easy to read and really helps you understand the key concepts.

For me, a very powerful concept was actually getting to the root cause of distraction. Sometimes we blame the devices. Nir helps us identify the key differences between Root causes and Proximate causes. This becomes really important to help understand the distraction. It's all about being able to deal with the distraction from within. I found that this book has explained this much better than other books have around this subject.

He goes into concepts such as understanding your values and whether your calendar reflects those values. Turning your values into time becomes really important and you then control the inputs and not the outcomes

There are lots and lots of useful ways to hack external triggers, whether it is work interruptions, email, chat, meetings, phones, computers, online articles or feeds.

There is a whole concept around pacts to prevent distractions.

The book also covers some very useful ways of raising indistractable children. This would also be very powerful for those with children who want to support them in not getting consumed in this world of distraction.

This is a great, practical book that can help support you in building the skill to be indistractable. You can't just become that by reading the book but the hacks and activities it provides will help you map out that journey. It comes with companion online resources like a workbook which asks very powerful questions and helps you embed this learning and thinking.

I highly recommend this book as something that will reclaim your focus and attention and help you navigate this world of distraction.
