indistractable by Nir Eyal. Book review

Book cover of indistractable

What is surprising about indistractable is that, given the book provides so many techniques on not being distracted, it’s not just a list of to do’s, but is written in a way which makes for an engaging read.

Nor is it a catalogue of quick fixes, which advocates keeping clear of modern technology, but guides you in harnessing it so that you work more effectively.

Essentially indistractable aims to put you in control of your life, rather than your life controlling you.

Explaining the reasons why we become distracted also adds another layer to your methodology.

At the end of each chapter is a summary which not only helps to reiterate the contents of the chapter, but aids in breaking down all the concepts into bite-sized chunks for easy absorption. As this is a book where you need to go back or link one set of ideas to another, the summaries are a great way of pulling everything together.

Having actual case studies made it easy to connect with the techniques, because every reader will recognise something of themselves within the descriptions.

By addressing not only work life, but the importance of quality time with the family, engaging with this book should help in every aspect of a busy person’s world. indistractable gives you permission to step back and create a healthy space in which to live productively.
