Product Description

Not many people have the opportunity to spend weeks entirely devoid of phone and computer screens, but Whittaker's radical, screen-free experiment yields hope and wisdom to everyone who has felt the loneliness, low-key despair, and paradoxical disconnectedness that accompanies the always-on, always-plugged-in nature of modern life.

Readers who take this journey with Whittaker will

  • learn how to cut through the divisive, polarizing effects of social media and build real community, even with people who are very different from them;
  • rediscover the joy of noticing and savoring the beauty of the world beyond their phone screens;
  • remember how experiencing boredom, solitude, and even getting lost (all but eradicated by smartphones) can bring opportunities for new discoveries about themselves and the world around them; and
  • reset their relationship with screens and social media forever.

 Blending wisdom from the past, practices of intentionality and community, and Whittaker's engaging communication style that has led to the explosive growth of his social media presence over the past few years, this book is a compelling story, a guide for resetting your life in a tech-saturated world, and an invitation into the connection and community that feels so elusive today.

Editorial Reviews

In a world where our phones and screens distract us more than we'd like to admit, I love that my friend Carlos did this fascinating experiment to give us the proof we need: The life we want isn't found in front of a screen. With his witty and timely wisdom, he helps us find new ways to enjoy life by establishing healthy limits so screen time won't be our lifeline any longer. This book is a must read! -- Lysa TerKeurst, #1 New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries

I love this book. It shows the damage from our overconnected society and the power of disconnecting in a personal, fascinating, funny, and insightful way. I highly recommend it. -- Daniel G. Amen, MD, author of Raising Mentally Strong Kids and Change Your Brain Every Day

Playful. Readable. Utterly profound. You should read this book, for your soul's sake. -- John Eldredge, author of Wild at Heart, Get Your Life Back, and Resilient
