In 24/6, Tiffany Shlain explores how turning off screens one day a week can work wonders on your brain, body, and soul - and why this regular practice of looking up gives you a better chance of seeing the big picture.
Internet pioneer and renowned filmmaker Tiffany Shlain takes us on a provocative and entertaining journey through past, present, and future of ideas about time and technology and introduces a strategy for living in our 24/7 world: turning off all screens for 24 hours each week. She and her family call it “Technology Shabbat”. This weekly practice, which they’ve done for nearly a decade with their kids (16 and 10), has completely changed their lives, giving them more time, productivity, connection, and presence.
Drawn from the ancient ritual of Shabbat, living 24/6 can work for anyone from any background. With insight, humor, and wisdom, Shlain shares her story, offers lessons she has learned, and provides a blueprint to do it yourself. Along the way, she examines the neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, and history of a weekly day of rest across cultures, making a convincing argument for why we need to bring this ritual back.
A compelling personal story and a far-reaching examination of the complex world we’ve created, 24/6 is an incisive and urgent call to rebalance ourselves and society through a transformative weekly practice. The book offers a universal, scientifically grounded, easily doable strategy for living in our 24/7 world that offers exponential benefits.

A deeply felt portrait of our digital culture
I started listening to this book and could not stop until I was finished. I had no idea there was so much to say about unplugging, the internet and how it effects our creativity. It's also the story of her life as she was one of the first females in tech. I was not expecting such an emotional journey. By the end of the book I was completely wrung out.
The narration is exceptional!

Just the inspiration and structure I needed!
I just finished my first Tech Shabbat. Thank you to Tiffany Shlain – this is exactly the antidote I needed for the digital life that has saved its way into every crack of life. I can’t wait for my next 24 hours of unplugging. This will be a lifetime rhythm for me!
