Visual artist and Stanford University lecturer Jenny Odell offers a disarmingly simple argument for how to do less and enjoy your life more. Odell argues against online addiction, and encourages a shift in attention toward the people, animals, plants and environments that surround you. She offers charming and wise tales from her experiences as an artist and illuminates the negative social impact of the attention economy on your consciousness and relationships. Odell provides a delightful alternative for all those who find the constant push to do more exhausting.
