Have you ever asked yourself...

…Why you are spending less time interacting with people in person and more time sitting alone behind a pixilated screen? Anthony Silard will help you realize what many of us are losing in the digital age—ourselves and our most important relationships—and provide a roadmap to reclaim them.

100 percent of author proceeds will be donated to nonprofit educational programs around the world.

You can buy Screened In at these great retailers:


The game of life was thrown a major curve ball when the first iPhone was released in 2007.
If loneliness, anxiety, and depression are the indicators—as Anthony Silard compellingly makes the case, with a raft of largely unknown research to back him up—then most of us are striking out.
If you want to get on base in the field of meaningful,
supportive human relationships, this is the one book you can’t do without. Buy it and adapt!

—Marshall Goldsmith

New York Times bestselling author of What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

Screened In is a sharp, readable, and savvy guide to making the most of those weapons of mass distraction in our
pockets. Silard shows why we are so addicted to screens and—even more important—how we can kick the habit to
live richer lives. Put down your phone and read it!

—Carl Honoré

international bestselling author of In Praise of Slow

Once we’ve had the honesty to admit we’re hooked on our screens, we can make the courageous choice to free
ourselves. Screened In is a clear, strong, and important book for our times that shines a fascinating and revealing
light on our societal addiction, and offers inspiration and practical strategies to reconnect with this creative,
vibrant, and precious life.

—Tara Brach
