About the Book


We are in a toxic relationship with our devices. The line between work and home has become blurrier than ever. The constant onslaught of information affects our mental peace. We all know this is not good for us. Yet, we can't help ourselves from going back for one more scroll.

The internet cannot be avoided, but our relationship with it can change.

The Art of Bitfulness helps create healthy boundaries between you and the floodgates of the internet. It offers new strategies to reclaim your time, privacy and attention. This book is all about how to live with tech, not how to live without it.

The goal is not to spend less time on your devices; it is to spend your time on your devices better.

This book also talks about how we got here in the first place. Why does our technology limit us, rather than liberate us? The Art of Bitfulness offers a new way of building tech for all, rather than a winner-take-all system.

The authors of this book are veterans of the digital world. They are optimistic about technology's potential
to transform society, but are pragmatic about what needs to happen to get there.

This book is not anti-tech, it is pro-you.
