Disconnected: How to Stay Human in an Online World is a self-help book by Emma Gannon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Disconnected: How to Stay Human in an Online World is a self-help book by Emma Gannon. The ebook version is 128 pages. I listened to the audiobook, which clocks in at three hours and is narrated by the author.

This book is a quick read about how we as humans have become more dependent on the internet–especially during the pandemic–while also reducing physical contact. Gannon does a deep dive into the manipulation of algorithms, our data as salable products, and where we might be able to go from here. At the ends of chapters, she provides easy-to-follow “quick prompts” to help remind yourself who you really are outside of the always-connected internet.

I was nodding in agreement a lot while listening to this book. I felt very seen by this book, partly because I am also an “elder millennial” like the author. In general, I really liked her prose! I think I’ll have to check out her podcast, Ctrl Alt Delete.

Special thanks to Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley for providing an audio galley of this book for me to review. All opinions contained herein are my own. The audiobook version of Disconnected: How to Stay Human in an Online World releases on May 31st, 2022.
