At first, I would have given the book 3 stars. The authors tend to exaggerate the dangers of social media and technology use to the point of fear-mongering. That put me off.
I also thought the 10-Minute title was misleading. There are a lot of activities presented in this book, and they take a lot more than 10 minutes. I was overwhelmed when first reading it. Making all the changes presented might take months, honestly, and I'm not committed to that.
However, two weeks later, I have taken several of the suggestions in this book. I whittled down my email subscriptions to a few choice items. I set better time limits on checking in online. I removed a few social media apps from my phone. And I plan to revamp my computer storage to a system similar to what's presented here, but more fitting to my own use.
Being able to visualize exactly what I want to do with my online time has helped me not get sucked in quite so much. And I am finding that I have a lot of time in the day to do things I want to do without the constant need for input. There's a study presented in here about rats pulling a lever for rewards. I've since adopted it for myself. I now ask, "Am I just pulling the lever here, hoping for some random reward?"
Because I found so many of the suggestions helpful, I'm bumping this up to four stars.
If you feel like you are spending too much time managing online "stuff" or interactions, you might enjoy the tips in this book. Just beware all the anti-technology language.
What brought me to this book was simple: my emails, my bookmarks and my computer files were just a mess. My download file was out of control, it became a computer junk drawer. I would look at all the files and quickly close the folder because it was so filled with everything and anything that it was incredibly stressful. Then my email accounts had hundreds and hundreds of emails in them. It all made me feel like it was out of control and completely unmanageable, but then I found this book.
What I liked about this book is it wasn’t ordering me to do everything at once and do it now now now! Ten minutes a day. That’s it. Knowing I only had to do this clean up project for only ten minutes really motivated me to do it. The book gives you a manageable game plan to organize your digital life. I highly recommend this book for people who feel they are not digitally organized.
I was actually looking for more links to "free" tools to deleting stuff and minimizing time to remove duplicate files. For example a tool to find duplicates on multiple devices. I don't think one exists today and the ones that are close to it have a subscription license model that I am not interested in. The ebook didn't have that information in it.
I did notice that the TOC was not working in Kindle Cloud reader for the ebook version I read.
I liked the screenshot of Steve's desktop with the Halloween avatar/background. It was a good example of living a decluttered digital life.
I will definitely recommend this book to my network.
