Overview

It's probably happened to you this week. Maybe it's even the situation you're in right now. You find yourself in a room full of people, friends and family, and not a word is spoken. You're all on your smartphones. Does this sound familiar? We all experience it too often. We may not always be the best at staying off our phones around others, but we all want to become better.

Technology has taken the world by storm, making our lives both easier and more difficult at the same time. This is just one of the many lessons you'll discover in Sherry Turkle's Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other.
