Keep Writing Nir Eyal. We love to learn from you.
Indistractable focuses on the reduction of distractions that is mainly caused by the use of technology and gadgets. It comprises of easy to read short chapters with further sections talking about dealing with distractions from within, reimagining internal triggers, hacking back external triggers, workplace distractions, having Indistractable relationships and, etc. etc.
The first few chapters were compelling, my interest was building up, but as I moved further to the next chapters, it looked like the addition of content was only done with the purpose to increase the volume of the book. It also includes a lot of research material just to present facts but I couldn’t understand how it is useful as a solution or benefits the readers. It is merely like a collection of numerous anecdotes.
I found a lot of positive reviews of the book online, so some of you might like the book, but it wasn’t a great read for me. I recommend reading both reviews before picking it up to read.
Although the first half of the book got me a few important takeaways, the latter half didn't appeal to me. There were anecdotes, a few handy tips, a little bit of explanation and justification but then, I felt drifted in some oblivion. I couldn't come to like the book from then on. Actually, it seemed to me as if I find these learnings in the articles online or anywhere. To put it simply, I didn't find anything unique. It's just this word - indistractable -and its basic concept that intrigued me.
I would recommend you to read it if you are just seeking out a self-help read for the first time.
For the most part, I felt that towards the second half of the book, the author was simply putting in material to increase the volume of the book and as such the content started to drag, and it could not retain my attention.
It felt like a series of anecdotes. I do not personally like that in self-help books and as such, this was again a disappointment.
As such, I have to rate it book a mere 1/5 stars. This book was just not it, for me. I could not relate to it much except for the first few pages.
