Product Details


“An antidote to all the darkness . . . a guide to tapping into True Fun.”—The New York Times Book Review

“If you feel like modern adulthood has sucked the fun out of your life, you’ll find hope in these pages. With clarity and levity, Catherine Price illuminates why our days are so dull—and how we can have more play and more joy.”—Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

“This is a practical, evidence-backed plan for how to create True Fun in our lives, and an argument that fun isn’t optional, but essential.”—Charles Duhigg, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Power of Habit and Smarter Faster Better

”Building on the central idea of How to Break Up With Your Phone—that our lives are what we pay attention to—The Power of Fun takes things a step further by helping us identify what we want to pay attention to, with the ultimate goal of helping us to feel more alive. Inspirational, funny, research-packed, and full of practical strategies, The Power of Fun is a game-changer.”—Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of Thrive Global

“Catherine Price helped me work through my dysfunctional relationship with my smartphone. Now she’s again making my life better.”—A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically

“Fun isn’t nice to have—it’s a must-have in a burned-out world.”—Eve Rodsky, New York Times bestselling author of Fair Play

The Power of Fun is an essential guide for anyone who can’t quite remember what it’s like to experience joy—and who wants to learn how fun can point the way to a happier, healthier, more energetic, and purpose-driven life.”—Laurie Santos, host of the podcast The Happiness Lab

“Charming . . . Price’s advice on how to stop doom-scrolling and engage in fun, even in small steps, is engaging and will attract readers.”Library Journal (starred review)

“Price is a trustworthy guide with a personable voice that stands out on each page. The Power of Fun reads like a heaping serving of a tasty yet healthy snack. You’ll enjoy every bite and feel energized afterward.”—BookPage

“Joy seekers are encouraged to ditch their devices and rediscover delight in this antidote to modern malaise. . . . With screen time and burnout now fixtures of modern life, this is a timely reminder of the value of reprioritizing.”Publishers Weekly
