You sit down at your desk to work on an important project, but a notification on your phone interrupts your morning. Later, as you''re about to get back to work, a colleague taps you on the shoulder to chat. At home, screens get in the way of quality time with your family. Another day goes by, and once again, your most important personal and professional goals are put on hold.

What would be possible if you followed through on your best intentions? What could you accomplish if you could stay focused? What if you had the power to become “indistractable?

International bestselling author, former Stanford lecturer, and behavioral design expert, Nir Eyal, wrote Silicon Valley''s handbook for making technology habit-forming. Five years after publishingHooked, Eyal reveals distraction''s Achilles'' heel in his groundbreaking new book.

InIndistractable, Eyal reveals the hidden psychology driving us to distraction. He describes why solving the problem is not as simple as swearing off our devices: Abstinence is impractical and often makes us want more.

Eyal lays bare the secret of finally doing what you say you will do with a four-step, research-backed model.Indistractablereveals the key to getting the best out of technology, without letting it get the best of us.

Inside, Eyal overturns conventional wisdom and reveals:

  • Why distraction at work is a symptom of a dysfunctional company culture—and how to fix it
  • What really drives human behavior and why “time management is pain management

  • How to raise indistractable children in an increasingly distracting world

Empowering and optimistic,Indistractableprovides practical, novel techniques to control your time and attention—helping you live the life you really want.
