How different would your life be if you were “indistractable”?

Nir Eyal wrote the book on how tech companies get people Hooked. After years of teaching at Stanford, Eyal now reveals the Achilles’ heel of distraction in his new book, Indistractable. In Indistractable, Eyal shatters the conventional narrative that the problem is our gadgets. Rather, Eyal shows why distraction is a symptom of much deeper dysfunction.
