We are living through a crisis of distraction. Plans get sidetracked, friends are ignored, work never seems to get done.

Why does it feel like we're distracting our lives away?

In Indistractable, behavioural designer Nir Eyal shows what life could look like if you followed through on your intentions. Instead of suggesting a digital detox, Eyal reveals the hidden psychology driving you to distraction, and teaches you how to make pacts with yourself to keep your brain on track. Indistractable is a guide to making decisions and seeing them through.

Empowering and optimistic, this is the book that will help you design your time, realise your ambitions, and live the life you really want.

"Indistractable zeroes in on one of the biggest challenges of our time: managing our attention. Nir Eyal provides the most practical and realistic approach yet to balancing technology with well-being"
Mark Manson, author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

"Exactly what most of us need in order to focus on what is important, rather than the dazzling, illuminated, unsatisfying distractions of modern life"
Matt Haig

"Nir Eyal understands the modern technologies of attention from the inside, and in this practical and timely book, he shares the secrets to regaining, and sustaining, the capacity to focus on what matters. Your brain (not to mention your spouse, your kids, and your friends) will thank you for reading it"
Oliver Burkeman

"The best guide I've read for reclaiming our attention, our focus and our lives"
Arianna Huffington

"This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to preserve islands of focused attention – and good personal relationships – at a time when digital devices pull us away from our priorities and our loved ones. I'm putting many of Eyal's ideas into practice"
Jonathan Haidt, author of The Coddling of the American Mind and the The Righteous Mind
