Product Details


“The Marie Kondo of brains . . . for the first time in a long time, I’m starting to feel like a human again.”—Kevin Roose, The New York Times

“A slim, insight-packed volume that’s both a primer on the toll smartphone overuse can take on our mental and physical health, and a practical manual for a 30-day reset designed to put you on a path to moderation, this is a book whose message couldn’t feel more timely, or more urgent. (No, really: after finishing the whole thing in one horrified sitting, I immediately pre-ordered 3 more copies for friends and family.)”—Sarah Karnasiewicz, Health

“Price dissects the way her phone has impacted her personal and professional lives, and gives practical advice on how to forge a healthier relationship with technology—without the fear mongering.”Refinery29

“The most important book I’ve read in years. Life-changing.”—Sali Hughes, The Pool

“Could be one of the most important books to be published in recent times.”—9Honey

“A comprehensive, step-by-step solution to spending less time with your phone and more time doing the things you love.”—Booklist

“To design a more joyful life includes reframing some of our old perceptions and habits. Almost no single thing in modern life deserves a reframe more than the smartphone. In How To Break Up with Your Phone, Price offers an accessible and clever way to accomplish that reframe and discover more time and energy for a better life.” —Dave Evans, coauthor of Designing Your Life and adjunct lecturer in the Product Design Program, Stanford University

“Price’s book is an invaluable guide of how–in the author’s own words—to turn your phone back into a tool, not a temptation. In these dopamine-drenched days of the smartphone era, hours can be lost to the mindless scroll. Price’s easily digestible tome is practical, not preachy, and a must-have for even the worst phubber.” —Pandora Sykes, journalist and former Fashion Features Editor at The Sunday Times Style

“Fascinating, entertaining and extremely timely. Your phone is an abusive partner—get rid now.”—Will Storr, author of Selfie
