Stop Reading the News : A Manifesto for a Happier, Calmer and Wiser Life Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

STOP READING THE NEWS is a vital toolkit for managing the upsetting coronavirus news cycle and finding equilibrium and calm at a time of chaos and uncertaintyIn 2013 Rolf Dobelli stood in front of a roomful of journalists and proclaimed that he did not read the news.

It caused a riot. Now the author of the bestselling The Art of Thinking Clearly finally sets down his philosophy in detail. And he practises what he preaches: he hasn't read the news for a decade. Stop Reading the News is Dobelli's manifesto about the dangers of the most toxic form of information - news.

He shows the damage it does to our concentration and well-being, and how a misplaced sense of duty can misdirect our behaviour.

Most importantly, he offers the reader the guidance on how to live without news, and the many potential gains to be had: less disruption, more time, less anxiety, more insights.

In a world of increasing disruption and division, Stop Reading the News is a welcome voice of calm and wisdom.
