Publisher's Summary

Do you pull out your phone at every idle moment? Do hours slip away as you mindlessly scroll? Has your smartphone added a level of detachment between you and the outside world?

Sadly technology which should be a wonderful boon to us has started to blight our lives. The average adult spends nearly 10 hours a day looking at digital screens, leading to unprecedented levels of stress, isolation, procrastination and inertia. The fact is that digital dependence is an addiction and should be treated as such.

Allen Carr's Easyway is a breath of fresh air when it comes to addiction treatment. Tried and tested as an incredibly successful stop-smoking method, its principles have since been applied to other addictions such as alcohol, gambling and caffeine with outstanding results. Here, for the first time, the Easyway method has been used to overcome digital addiction, and it really works!

Smart Phone Dumb Phone rewires our relationship to technology.

Including 20 practical steps to help you along your way, this wonderful guide will release you from the clutches of your smartphone and allow you to live in the moment. It truly is the easyway.

Simply Perfect!

Really good book in every sense, worth the purchase. Very precisely put. There are 5-6books I read and scanned though, this is the best among them. Very effective - atleast for me. Hope I am able to use the learnings in practicle.

Good take on another addiction

I've read Allen Carr's Easy Way to stop gambling and loved it. This book follows the same principles and is a valuable tool for those willing to limit their digital use.

Interesting analysis of digital addiction

I’d give it overall a 3.5 out of 5. The book tries to apply the methods for cutting smoking and other drugs to digital “junk”, which sometimes works, but often makes it confusing. Because, as he explains in the book, digital devices aren’t always bad or always good, they are good or bad depending on the way they are used, and which apps in particular. I think it could’ve been written better and less tacky, and that it would’ve been better if it was built from scratch, rather than taking the template from Allen Carr’s smoking book. But I did get some good insights on how to quit any addiction, and think it will positively affect my digital use.
