Book Nook: Breaking the Feedback Loop - How I Liberated Myself from Internet Addiction and How You Can Too

Internet addiction affects as many as one in eight Americans. Author A.N. knows what it’s like to have, and escape from a lifestyle of digital dependence. I had a chance to review his new book Breaking the Feedback Loop: How I Liberated Myself from Internet Addiction and How You Can Too. In the book, he provides a concise, essential guide written for young adults, college students, millennials, young professionals and anyone who is negatively impacted by the Internet.

This book is appropriate for a lot of different people - teens or young adults stuck in the loop of social media, parents of those who are spending an inordinate amount of time online, or anyone who knows they need to reduce their usage but just can't break the habit.

The book is well-researched, including a lot of concrete information about what makes the internet and social media so appealing. It also has realistic steps to help reduce usage to a manageable and appropriate level - whatever that is for each person. This "digital diet" improves relationships with face-to-face peers and friends, as well as with social media, to maximize happiness and productivity.
