A timely call for everyone to PAY ATTENTION to how increasingly our online activities threaten to define us as human beings. "You are not the sum of your Google searches, Amazon purchases, and Facebook likes." Harrison serves up a passionate manifesto for fostering habits of critical thinking, for paying attention to how our brains operate in social media bubbles, how addictions develop, and how better to protect our vanishing digital privacy. He is not by any means arguing against online activity, but rather for living smarter digital lives.
