Summary "Do you spend hours every day on your smartphone or tablet? Reading the news, shopping for clothes, checking your email, and catching up on social media? Do you scroll through blog articles and text with your friends while waiting in line at the DMV or the grocery store, avoiding any chance interactions with actual human beings? If so, you aren't alone. Most of us are stuck on a hedonic treadmill of push-button notifications, friend updates, and text messages. But the real question is--are we happy? And, if not, how can we increase our happiness in the age of tech? Outsmart Your Smartphone is not a book about the evils of technology--it's a road map for achieving happiness using all the tools available to you, including your phone. With this smart and irreverent guide, you'll find seven steps to help you use technology in ways that increase your well-being, and find tips and tricks for overcoming the obstacles that technology creates."--Amazon.
