Product description


'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. ' - Emerald Street (Emerald Street)

'Katherine Ormerod investigates the worst aspects of being constantly connected and how to offset the negative impact on your life.' Mail online, Femail (Mail Online)

'Omerod's well-researched book is packed full of wisdom that will not only make you feel less alone in your worries, it offers advice and tips to help you armour up against the all-consuming force that is social media.' - Mashable (Mashable)

'Reading that I'm not alone in feeling like my Instagram persona is having a prettier happier, more successful twin sister is reassuring. Having the tools to do something about that feeling? Even better.' - Mashable (Mashable)

Book Description

A no-holds-barred, no-filter look at what social media is doing to us as a society, and how we can deconstruct the online fantasy to change our own attitudes about modern womanhood.
