Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Marie Kondo of brains . . . for the first time in a long time, I’m starting to feel like a human again."—Kevin Roose, The New York Times

"A slim, insight-packed volume that's both a primer on the toll smartphone overuse can take on our mental and physical health, and a practical manual for a 30-day reset designed to put you on a path to moderation, this is a book whose message couldn't feel more timely, or more urgent. (No, really: after finishing the whole thing in one horrified sitting, I immediately pre-ordered 3 more copies for friends and family.)"—Sarah Karnasiewicz, Health

"Price dissects the way her phone has impacted her personal and professional lives, and gives practical advice on how to forge a healthier relationship with technology—without the fear mongering."Refinery29

"The most important book I've read in years. Life-changing."—Sali Hughes, The Pool

"Could be one of the most important books to be published in recent times."—9Honey

"A comprehensive, step-by-step solution to spending less time with your phone and more time doing the things you love."—Booklist

"To design a more joyful life includes reframing some of our old perceptions and habits. Almost no single thing in modern life deserves a reframe more than the smartphone. In How To Break Up with Your Phone, Price offers an accessible and clever way to accomplish that reframe and discover more time and energy for a better life." —Dave Evans, coauthor of Designing Your Life and adjunct lecturer in the Product Design Program, Stanford University

"Price's book is an invaluable guide of how--in the author's own words—to turn your phone back into a tool, not a temptation. In these dopamine-drenched days of the smartphone era, hours can be lost to the mindless scroll. Price's easily digestible tome is practical, not preachy, and a must-have for even the worst phubber." —Pandora Sykes, journalist and former Fashion Features Editor at The Sunday Times Style

"Fascinating, entertaining and extremely timely. Your phone is an abusive partner—get rid now."—Will Storr, author of Selfie

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd recommend this book to any smartphone user!
By Kurt on February 26, 2019
I first saw this book on a whim when I was at the library. I noticed the title, and thought it sounded interesting. It's a quick read, as once I started I couldn't put it down. The book starts off with "An open letter to my phone", and I was hooked from there. I included that letter in the pics.

The book is broken down into 2 sections - The Wake Up and The Break Up. The Wake Up goes into how phones are so addictive, how they can harm memory and attention span, etc. The Break Up is essentially a 30 day challenge where you do one thing each day, with the goal of ultimately creating a healthier relationship with your phone. After reading the book in 2 short days, I decided that to get the most out of it, I needed to do the 30 day challenge. It exceeded my expectations!

I really appreciated how the author, Catherine Price, isn't telling us phones are bad. She says they are incredible tools that can help lead to richer and more fulfilling lives, if used appropriately. She isn't telling us not to use our phones, but is instead giving us tools that allow us to make the choice of when/how to use our phone a conscious one...rather than the addictive habit that phone usage can so easily become. I would strongly recommend this book to any smartphone user, and I've already purchased an additional copy for my brother.

On a side note, I reached out to the author directly and actually heard back! She was friendly, encouraging, and very thankful.
