In this book, Katherine Ormerod meets the experts involved in curating, building and combating the most addictive digital force humankind has ever created. From global influencers – who collectively have over 10 million followers – to clinical psychologists, plastic surgeons and professors, Katherine uncovers how our relationship with social media has rewired our behavioural patterns, destroyed our confidence and shattered our attention spans.

Reviews

'It will come as no surprise that social media and the inclination to compare our lives' to others is having a malign effect on humans. But it might be slightly more alarming to discover that it's not just bringing us down but rewiring our behavioural patterns. Read this book and then carve out some for room yourself and your brain.
