Digital Minimalism: On Living Better with Less Technology
| by Cal Newport
The urge to pick up our phones every few minutes has become a nervous twitch that shatters our time into shards too small to be present. Our addiction to tech leaves us feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
In this timely book, professor Cal Newport shows us how to pair back digital distractions and live better with less technology.
Introducing us to digital minimalists — the calm, happy people who can hold long conversations without furtive glances at their phones or obsessively document everything they eat — Newport reveals how to live more intentionally in our tech-saturated world.
By following a thirty-day ‘digital declutter’ process, you’ll learn to:
– Rethink your relationship with social media.
– Prioritize ‘high bandwidth’ conversations over low-quality text chains.
– Rediscover the pleasures of the offline world.
Take back control from your devices and become a digital minimalist.
Lifespan: Why We Age – and Why We Don’t Have To
| by David A. Sinclair
It’s a seemingly undeniable truth that ageing is inevitable. But what if everything we’ve been taught to believe about ageing is wrong? What if we could choose our lifespan?
In this groundbreaking book, Dr David Sinclair, leading world authority on genetics and longevity, reveals a bold new theory for why we age. As he writes: “Aging is a disease, and that disease is treatable.”
This book takes us to the frontlines of research many from Dr David Sinclair’s own lab at Harvard—that demonstrate how we can slow down, or even reverse, ageing. The key is activating newly discovered vitality genes, the descendants of an ancient genetic survival circuit that is both the cause of ageing and the key to reversing it.
