YOUR HAPPINESS WAS HACKED Why Tech Is Winning the Battle to Control Your Brain--and How to Fight Back

by | Read by Alex Salkever

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Coauthor Alex Salkever narrates this timely audiobook in an uninflected manner. While he's far from a dramatic reader, his earnest style suits the seriousness of the issues he raises. He is convincing. The authors share their personal stories, each in a kind of mea culpa for what inspired this project: email addiction leading to failing health for Wadhwa and a near disaster--screen reading while driving--for Salkever. The authors then take on a litany of problems--screen addiction, decline in exercise, sleep deprivation, loneliness--that are related to the massive time-suck of social media. They demonstrate that parents' screen behavior contributes powerfully to teens' tech addiction. They give thoughtful suggestions for modifying use and recommend apps to help.
