  • Electronic + Addicted (abnormally dependent on a habit) = edicted (hooked on technology).

    Technology can be a wonderful thing. It can also be a curse when it overwhelms us. If your phone, computer or other devices are beginning to rule your life, then you may be edicted.

    We don't have to be ruled by our machines. It's time for us humans to fight back. Revolution tells you how, with technology taming tips and simple things that you can do to regain control. Take the test and find out just how edicted you are - then learn how to cure yourself.

    'I can't talk now, I'm on the phone' For those of us suffering from ediction, it's time to pause and think. Author and Plain English commentator Kevin Duncan has trained and advised some of the UK's top companies, including Saatchi & Saatchi and Shell, in how to cope with all this. This thought-provoking book grapples with just how addicted we have become to technology and offers a set of ideas to help wean us off our technological drugs and lead a more fulfilling life. It looks briefly at how we got here, tests you on how serious your condition is and then offers real solutions, including rapid sequential tasking (v multitasking), communicating concisely, using the best method of communication for the job, all while retaining your sense of humour and enthusiasm.
