Tired of being tied to your smartphone? New short book provides convincing answers

In his first book, recognized journalist Blake Snow offers humorous, well-researched, and insightful advice on how to break free and enjoy renewed life offline

Provo, UT (December 19, 2017) – Do you or someone you know need a little help unplugging this holiday or new year? If so, Log Off: How To Stay Connected After Disconnecting by Blake Snow (ISBN 978-1973543749, 2017) may have the answer and is available now at the world’s largest bookstore in paperback, ebook, and audiobook editions.

The self-help memoir and well-researched book is the first for Snow, a prolific writer for such publications as Wired, USA Today, CNN, and Wall Street Journal among others. The book produces convincing evidence and a path forward for people hoping to reclaim their offline lives without the constant distraction and “fear of missing out” caused by the internet, social media, and smartphones.

“With Facebook recently admitting as much, it’s official,” says Blake Snow, author of Log Off: How To Stay Connected After Disconnecting. “Excessive use of smartphones, the internet, and social media makes us miserable. Although I wrote this life-changing book for myself, I feel strongly that the ideas and encouragement contained therein can help others find greater fulfillment, peace of mind, and better relationships after responsibly logging off.”

In this quick but potent read, Snow recounts his own journey from being a workaholic internet addict, his awakening (aka “Montana Moment”), and the steps he has since taken to increase his facetime with actual people, do more offline with less online, double his productivity in half the time, and tunefully blend his analog and digital lives with no regrets. 

Throughout the book, Snow offers humorous yet thoughtful advice on why the internet is so hard to put down, how constant connectivity hinders productivity, how to live large on low-caloric technology, and why you should consider Reformed Luddism, the Four Burners Theory, the Rule of Thirds, and other leading schools of thought in your fight to overcoming “obsessive internetting,” which has more than doubled this generation.

“Responsibly disconnecting not only enriches our individual lives, but society as a whole,” Snow concludes. “As the offline balance movement gains momentum, I believe Log Off: How To Stay Connected After Disconnecting can be a turning point for anyone wishing to leave the modern, heads down rat race behind.”
