Perfect balance of humor and a healthy dose of reality.
Samantha Cummings
It was to the point that I begun rooting for certain characters to succee over others.

The book reveals the human side of the story of technology, and it's social impact.

This author certainly knows the dynamics of cell phones, social media, and relationships. I always enjoy a book that relates to my own life and this one most certainly does. In the midst of the smartphone and social media craze I think this book will capture most readers attention. I found it most entertaining how ridiculous some of the characters actions look written out on paper, but if you take a step back they aren't far from the current norm; social networking is out of control! This is a quick read for a good laugh, but I wouldn't understate the value that can be taken away from it by analyzing how social media is affecting your own personal life whether for better or worse.

Honestly, for using a blackberry, and being a new fan of social networking, I think it is totally speaking. We feel a real sense of observation with this target and perverse degrees can have these new phenomena. Where is the limit? This is the big question that arises Sara Marzougui through this book. I felt as much fun (probably more) than The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Wesbeirger. The characters are endearing and glaring truth, we identify ourselves immediately. In summary? Read it!

Perfect balance of humor and a healthy dose of reality. This book will keep you laughing from beginning to end, due to the fact that we can all relate to at least one of these characters (even though you may not want to admit it). The author intricately weaves a tale of love, humor and heartache all brought on by social media. I keep this book with me at all times whenever I need to be reminded to put the phone down and live in the present.

To say I can relate would be an understatement. The author writes in a voice that is not only familiar but also very illuminating about our societal fascination with cell phones. It's hard to look at your own phone the same ever again, which I suppose would help us all put them down and reconnect with the people who really matter in a more personal way before it's too late. The characters are so funny and I'll be passing along to a few friends and cousins.

Definitely worth reading. It really illustrates the consequences of modern technology - Crackberries and such - in a Sex & the City-type setting. Highly recommended!!

Thanks to the amazing writer Sara Marzougui, finally there is a book that keeps up with the fast growing mobile and social media industry, how it is impacting our life, relationships, and changing the way we communicate and interact. The book reveals the human side of the story of technology, and it's social impact.

A must read! very engaging and full of wisdom, It will impact your life in a very positive way, so put that phone down, pick up the book and read it:)

I was on a plane from Boston to London and I was planning to read a bit and then pass out on the plane, since I was extremely tired. I started reading "Life without it" and guess what? No matter how tired I was I couldn't stop reading. I just wanted to know what's next. There are multiple stories going on, some of them entangled, some of them completely independent, but I wanted to know how every single one of them would evolve. Needless to say I didn't sleep on the plane. Well organized and pleasant to read. I think most people who ever lived in cities like NYC and Boston can relate immediately.

Very entertaining. Read it!
