"Literature about our screen behavior and our brains is not a direct shortage. Behavioral changes and strains linked to smartphones, social media and computer use are discussed across the board. Is it really possible to say new and exciting things in this area? YEEES, it turns out! There will therefore be some somersaults, both forwards and backwards. Of sheer joy. This book gives so much." -Eric Hörstadius, Diet Doctor

Full review:



"In nine chapters, you get a guide in finding a good balance between today's screen-dense everyday life and your own health in a technology-based world. What we call multitasking and working in open office landscapes is set in the book against the biology of the brain and our human needs. By following the author's explanations, reasoning and summaries, you will simply be Screen Smarter after reading. Mattias Ribbing is a three-time Swedish champion in memory, author, lecturer and brain training expert.

I can really recommend the book to everyone to have a modern conversation. A conversation about how we can find balance in the flow of impressions, in the pandemic meet via the screen and with small changes become as Screen Smart as we can." - Myrthel Hermansson
