really liked it
bookshelves: reference, the-end

It was OK - a great motivational read, with some exercises that I didn't bother doing because I already don't own a smartphone and am long since past being tempted by social media notification pings. Still, I need my little bit of digital dopamine fixes every once in a while, and this is a good book for beginners to figure out what that means in a broader sense. I knocked off an entire star for just the fact that I wish Cook had included proper footnotes and citations for some of her quotes and sources... she cites a lot of references that I'm interested in looking into and the bibliography at the back isn't quite enough, and some of her assertions have no biblographical reference point at all.
