Abstract:
Bila chronicles her love-hate relationship with her cell phone... and her social media, laptop, and all such apps and devices that have many of us immersed in the distracting, alluring, draining world that is the digital era. She shares stories of mistakes made and sunsets missed, naming her affliction OCTD: obsessive compulsive Tech disorder. Advocating a no-nonsense, common-sense, personal responsibility and accountability approach to OCTD, Bila warns us that if we don't start looking up to make eye contact with each other, our very humanity is at stake. -- adapted from publisher info
