How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy (MP3 CD)
Email or call for price.
One of the great questions of the twenty-first century so far is what social media, the demands of capitalism, and an increasingly automated economy are doing (or have already done) to our brains. How are productivity culture and social networking distancing and distracting us from each other, ourselves, and the earth on which we stand? In "How To Do Nothing," Odell blends art, criticism, theory, and personal narrative to challenge how we respond to the monopolization of our attention. This rich, prescient book is an insightful manifesto for the internet age. (Bonus tip: this book pairs well with Trick Mirror, by Jia Tolentino!)— Allison S., Bookseller
