Reviews

""Prescient when it originally appeared, Distracted is now MORE ESSENTIAL THAN EVER. This new edition deserves your full attention." - Nicholas Carr, author of The Shallows and The Glass Cage "Maggie Jackson has an ear fine-tuned to what is important in the culture--to the trends that matter! She writes beautifully, in a way that commands attention, but when there is poetry in her subject she makes sure that it gets its due. I'm a fan!" --Sherry Turkle, MIT Professor, and author of Reclaiming Conversation and Alone Together
