** A New York Times Bestseller ** NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY: Time & #8226 The New Yorker & #8226 NPR & #8226 GQ & #8226 Elle & #8226 Vulture & #8226 Fortune & #8226 Boing Boing & #8226 The Irish Times & #8226   The New York Public Library & #8226 The Brooklyn Public Library 'A complex, smart and ambitious book that at first reads like a self-help manual, then blossoms into a wide-ranging political manifesto.'& #8212 Jonah Engel Bromwich, The New York Times Book Review One of President Barack Obama's 'Favorite Books of 2019' Porchlight's Personal Development & Human Behavior Book of the Year In a world where addictive technology is designed to buy and sell our attention, and our value is determined by our 24/7 data productivity, it can seem impossible to escape. But in this inspiring field guide to dropping out of the attention economy, artist and critic Jenny Odell shows us how we can still win back our lives.   Odell sees our attention as the most precious& #8212 and overdrawn& #8212 resource we have. And we must actively and continuously choose how we use it. We might not spend it on things that capitalism has deemed important & #8230 but once we can start paying a new kind of attention, she writes, we can undertake bolder forms of political action, reimagine humankind& #8217 s role in the environment, and arrive at more meaningful understandings of happiness and progress. Far from the simple anti-technology screed, or the back-to-nature meditation we read so often, How to do Nothing is an action plan for thinking outside of capitalist narratives of efficiency and techno-determinism. Provocative, timely, and utterly persuasive, this book will change how you see your place in our world.
