Remember life before being connected 24/7?
I rank The Durable Human Manifesto at the top of my list of non-fiction audiobooks. The author's enthusiasm and passion for the subject reeled me in within the first few minutes. The music and sound effects compliment the spoken word nicely. Somehow it sinks in better....hearing the babies laugh and the waves crash.
I did not realize just how much time I spend looking at my iPhone or iPad or PC until I listened to this book. The real-life examples brought it home. I make a concerted effort now to make sure I turn all devices off at least a couple hours each day to enjoy a book, walk with my dog or have an actual live telephone chat with a friend or family member. This quick 25-minute-listen is well worth your time. If someone in your life spends more time with their nose in a laptop, smartphone or tablet, while life is passing them by because they never disconnect, this is the book for them. Can't wait for the next installment!
