Synopsis

OUT NOW: The new book by Sunday Times bestselling author, Emma Gannon



I love Emma Gannon's wise and refreshing perspective on work, and more broadly on the challenges of building a meaningful life in an era of distraction, overwhelm and uncertainty. - Oliver Burkeman, New York Times Bestselling author of Four Thousand Weeks



A sensible, kind and useful book about forging a healthier relationship with social media. - Marian Keyes, Sunday Times Bestselling author

__________



Millennials might have grown up online but now they want to log off. And it's not just millennials. A year of lockdowns, Zoom meetings and reduced physical contact has made us more dependent on the internet than ever before - but has it lost its humanity?



Our focus on community and real connection has been sent off-course and we're becoming more aware of how the algorithm manipulates us and how our data has made us a product to be sold. So, where do we go from here and how can we get back on track? (Dis)connected examines these topics and offers tangible tips and advice for those of us who might feel a little lost right now and want to find themselves again.

Emma Gannon is a cordial and provocative spirit. Read her, listen to her, explore her world and the world at large through her eyes. Hers is a journey well worth taking. - Julia Cameron, New York Times Bestselling author of The Artist's Way
