Book Logging Off Description/Summary:
From bestselling author Nick Spalding comes a laugh-out-loud story about getting offline--and getting on with life. Andy Bellows is in a right state. Plagued with insomnia, anxiety and neckache, he's convinced there's something seriously wrong with him. And the worst thing is that his doctor agrees. The diagnosis: Andy is in the grip of a self-destructive addiction to technology--he just cannot put that bloody mobile phone down. Texting, tweeting, gaming and online dating--technology rules Andy's life. His phone even monitors his bowel movements. So how will he cope when he's forced to follow doctor's orders and step away from all of his beloved screens? From having to leave the flat in search of food like some kind of Neanderthal to engaging in conversations with actual people, Andy's about to discover just how bewildering--and scary--the analogue world can be. And when his sixty-day detox hits the headlines--making him a hero to suffering technophiles everywhere--Andy is sorely tempted to pack it all in and escape in the nearest Uber. Can he get himself out of this mess, and work out how to live a better, technologically balanced life...without consulting Google even once?
