Hamlets BlackBerry: Building a Good Life in the Digital Age

Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary

Our computers and mobile devices do wonderful things for us. But they also impose a burden, making it harder for us to focus, do our best work, build strong relationships, and find the depth and fulfillment we crave. How to solve this problem? Hamlets BlackBerry argues that we just need a new way of thinking, an everyday philosophy for life with screens. William Powers sets out to solve what he calls the conundrum of connectedness. Reaching into the past--using his own life as laboratory and object lesson--he draws on some of historys most brilliant thinkers, from Plato to Shakespeare to Thoreau, to demonstrate that digital connectedness serves us best when its balanced by its opposite, disconnectedness. Lively, original, and entertaining, Hamlets BlackBerry will challenge you to rethink your digital life.
