Summary

Millennials might have grown up online, but now they want to log off. And it's not just millennials. A year of lockdowns, Zoom meetings and reduced physical contact has made us more dependent on the internet than ever before - but has it lost its humanity? 

Our focus on community and real connection has been sent off-course, and we're becoming more aware of how the algorithm manipulates us and how our data has made us a product to be sold. So, where do we go from here, and how can we get back on track? (Dis)connected examines these topics and offers tangible tips and advice for those of us who might feel a little lost right now and want to find themselves again.

Live more, scroll less. Duh.

This is more of an extended Instagram post than a book. Filled with mind numbingly obvious observations, Gannon rehashes a million Medium style essays on the subject and presents it as self help for the screen obsessed masses. But without the thorough research & fascinating detail of books such as ‘Four Thousand Weeks’ or ‘10 Arguments for deleting your social media accounts right now’, it just comes across as a frothy opinion piece on the subject. She could have saved herself the trouble and just tweeted ‘live more, scroll less’.
