digital minimalism - a philosophy that tells you to be more intentional with our online time.
Reviewed in India on 19 May 2021
So at first I read this book with a little hint of scepticism and the beginning pages wasn't that good either but later it got so much interesting and I got intrigued so much that I devoured this book in less than 3 days, given I read this book in my leisure hours. this book endorses the philosophy of digital minimalism where the author provokes readers to leave all the social media apps for a substantial period of time, it can be 30 or 31 or 38 whatever you think is reasonable and reintroduce these attention-craving apps back into our life considering certain prerequisite questions that you ask yourself before introducing back into your life, sounds aggressive, right! some people might be thinking that's too extreme but he has his reasons and he explains them one by one. I think we all felt that these social media apps consumed so much of our time for no reason at all. I read at least an average people spend more than 3 hours on social media, which can be spent on high-quality leisure activities like learning to play the guitar or read books or any hobbies that make your life meaningful. If you think about it, these social media apps caused more harm than any good, so many people showed behavioural addictions especially teenagers who are more prone to addictions. I remember when I deleted some of the social media apps, I definitely showed some withdrawal symptoms. But again instead of antagonising the social media tycoons, it's also about time we also take some responsibility and accept that we also have something to do with this addiction too. social media is a double-edged sword. This book contains so much more, I definitely recommend this one.
