DESCRIPTION

A galvanizing critique of the forces vying for our consideration – and our private data – that redefines what we consider as productiveness, reconnects us with the surroundings, and divulges all that we have been too distracted to see about ourselves and our world Nothing is tougher to do today than nothing. However in a world the place our worth is decided by our 24/7 knowledge productiveness . . . doing nothing could also be our most necessary type of resistance.┬áSo argues artist and critic Jenny Odell on this subject information to doing nothing (not less than as capitalism defines it). Odell sees our consideration as essentially the most valuable – and overdrawn – useful resource we’ve. As soon as we will begin paying a brand new type of consideration, she writes, we will undertake bolder types of political motion, reimagine humankind’s function within the surroundings, and arrive at extra significant understandings of happiness and progress.┬áRemoved from the straightforward anti-technology screed, or the back-to-nature meditation we hear so typically, The right way to Do Nothing is an motion plan for considering exterior of capitalist narratives of effectivity and techno-determinism. Provocative, well timed, and completely persuasive, this e book is a four-course meal within the age of Soylent.
