Publisher's Summary

Phones can be a great tool for connecting with people outside the room, when they don't interfere with the people inside the room. You can dare to be relationally different in a screen-to-screen culture. 

But...honestly, I like my phone. So what should I do?  

You probably enjoy screens but don't want them hurting your relationships with the people who matter most, right? What if you could improve your face-to-face relationships, develop deeper connections, resolve conflict, and confidently communicate with friends, parents, teachers, roommates, coworkers, potential employers...even the barista at your local coffee shop? 

What if your phone truly helped you connect with the people more than disconnect with those around you? 

What if you paused to think before you posted, avoiding some of the hurt and consequences that almost always lead to regret after? 

What if you became a master of your own screen-time instead of letting it master you? 

What if you became more screen-wise?  

Forty real-life realizations, including...

  • Your phone doesn't have an unsend button.
  • Sometimes less is more.
  • We all need a digital detox every once in a while.
  • Sometimes the people we love the most are the people we ignored all day. 
  • If you find someone who doesn't look at their phone once during a meal...marry them!  

Author and youth-culture expert, Jonathan McKee, and his daughter Alyssa McKee, uncover 40 random realizations they've discovered over the last five years. Screens provide fun platforms to connect with faraway friends; and sometimes the people we love the most are the people we ignore all day. Jonathan and Alyssa help young adults navigate face-to-face communication in a screen-to-screen world, too! Maybe they'll help you navigate face-to-face communication in a screen-to-screen world, too!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
