What We Are Reading Today: Indistractable by Nir Eyal

International best-selling author, former Stanford lecturer, and behavioral design expert, Nir Eyal, wrote Silicon Valley’s handbook for making technology habit-forming. Five years after publishing Hooked, Eyal reveals distraction’s Achilles’ heel in his groundbreaking new book.

In Indistractable, Eyal reveals the hidden psychology driving us to distraction, according to a review published on goodreads.com. He describes why solving the problem is not as simple as swearing off our devices: Abstinence is impractical and often makes us want more.

Eyal lays bare the secret of finally doing what you say you will do with a four-step, research-backed model. Indistractable reveals the key to getting the best out of technology, without letting it get the best of us.

Empowering and optimistic, Indistractable provides practical, novel techniques to control your time and attention — helping you live the life you really want.

Commenting on the book, James Clear, author of Atomic Habits, said: “Indistractable provides a framework that will deliver the focus you need to get results.”
