    Description

    Welcome to the age of behavioral addiction - an age in which half of the American population is addicted to at least one behavior. We obsess over our emails, Instagram likes, and Facebook feeds; we binge on TV episodes and YouTube videos; we work longer hours each year; and we spend an average of three hours each day using our smartphones. Half of us would rather suffer a broken bone than a broken phone, and millennial kids spend so much time in front of screens that they struggle to interact with real, live humans.

    In this revolutionary book, Adam Alter, a professor of psychology and marketing at NYU, tracks the rise of behavioral addiction and explains why so many of today's products are irresistible. Though these miraculous products melt the miles that separate people across the globe, their extraordinary and sometimes damaging magnetism is no accident. The companies that design these products tweak them over time until they become almost impossible to resist.

    By reverse engineering behavioral addiction, Alter explains how we can harness addictive products for the good - to improve how we communicate with each other, spend and save our money, and set boundaries between work and play - and how we can mitigate their most damaging effects on our well-being and the health and happiness of our children.

    Commentaires

    "As if to prove his point, Adam Alter has written a truly addictive book about the rise of addiction. Irresistible is a fascinating and much needed exploration of one of the most troubling phenomena of modern times.” (Malcolm Gladwell, author of New York Times best sellers David and Goliath and Outliers)

    “Alter’s sweep is broad: He includes not just the more obvious addictive technologies such as slot machines and video games, but the whole sweep of social media, dating apps, online shopping and other binge-inducing programs. He takes in everything (which today is most things) whose business model depends on being irresistible...[An] enjoyable yet alarming book.” (Washington Post)

    “If you can't stop checking, clicking, surfing and liking, put your device down and read Adam Alter's Irresistible, an important, groundbreaking book about why we're addicted to technology, how we got here, and what we should do next.” (Arianna Huffington, author of The Sleep Revolution and Thrive)

    Disturbing

    The author does an incredible job piecing together anecdotal evidence, clinical presentations and research to provide a convincingly disturbing analysis of the dangers parents (I am a father of 6) unwittingly expose their children to. A MUST READ for every parent of children under the age of 21! For that matter it is also a cautionary tale for adults since smart phones are ubiquitous in western society and most adults polled say that they "can't live without" one.

    Good start with no direction

    the idea is good but ultimately the author doesn't really make an argument. and if his original plan is to state how media is addiction he doesn't really stick to it.

    A Must Listen

    To those who know the addictive power of screens, listen here and learn exactly why they are that way. Adam Alter uses a vast amount of examples and puts in brilliant words why we succumb to these addictive behaviors and how we can better use them. Great content.

    Not scientifically sound

    I'm an addiction researcher. I thought I'd listen to this to learn more tech companies' efforts to keep people using their products. There's a little bit of that in the book but nothing that's not already fairly evident and well known. The bigger problem is the imprecise discussing of many concepts in addiction. There's a lot in this book that is poorly explained and misleading. A lay reader wouldn't know they're getting a very cartoonish picture of addiction. For a nuanced, critical and accessible book on addiction, see Unbroken Brain by Maia Szalavitz. This book was a disappointment.

    I'm addicted!

    I enjoyed listening to the book better than reading it. The way the narrator read the book kept me engaged and wanting to hear more. The book is very interesting and well written. Love it.

    Thought-provoking

    Very interesting book that illuminates the dark side of technology. As I listened, I thought about how I use technology and some ways I should change my approach. Although I initially borrowed this audiobook from Scribd, I've since purchased it so I can listen again. Highly recommended.

    Everyone should listen to this

    The author is very careful to explain how digital medias keeps us hooked.
    The book includes a lot of stories which are well narrated and contains just enough scientific facts.
    On the other hand I really enjoyed that the author explains not all medias are bad, and how we can use digital addictions in a good way.
    I think every adult should listen to this, because weather you want it or not, you will face behavioral addictions related to technology in your life.

    Thought provoking.

    I didn't enjoy the narrator but the story was very interesting and sparked some conflict with my technology use.

    Eye-opening

    I knew i was using technology too much. But this book has woken me up and shown me ways to not only manage my usage to make it revolve around me needs, and not the other way round and also provided me with information how to do it in the first place.

    Putting some thought in to the discussed studies and the provided knowledge, the information is a great tool to gain insight into the motivations and thought processes of others.

    Great listen!

    Wichtiges Buch

    Das Buch bringt einige der Probleme der modernen Medien auf den Punkt. Ein tolles Buch für alle die nicht selbst in die Falle geraten wollen und auch ein gutes Buch für Eltern.

    Einblick in die täglichen Wahnsinn der Mediensucht

    Der Autor, ein Professor aus New York, befasst sich eingehend mit dem Thema, wie die modernen Medien des Internets zu global agierenden Spielautomaten herangewachsen sind, die unser Verhalten gezielt steuern und fast jeden Menschen, der sie nutzt, mehr oder weniger zu einem suchtgesteuerten User umgekrempelt haben.
    Schnell zeigen wir auf Kinder und Jugendliche, die in ihren Telefonen versinken und die Welt an sich vorbeiziehen lassen - sind jedoch auch als Erwachsene kaum weniger betroffen, eher nur anders.
    Das Buch kann ich jedem empfehlen, der dieses Thema spannend findet und verstehen will, wie es dazu kommen konnte.
    Lediglich an Lösungen und dem richtigen Umgang mit sich selbst und besagten Medien liefert der Autor - für mein Empfinden - zu wenig. Es werden einige Punkte angesprochen, aber die füllen nur das letzte Kapitel aus...
