"Digital Detox is the best throwback since you found that old mixtape you had forgotten about. So make a cup of tea (wine) and pick up this book. The internet will still love you when you return.”—Uli Beutter Cohen, founder and editor of the Subway Book Review
"For years, I've averaged 19.5 hours/day on my phone, and my wife has turned to Alexa for tenderness and affection. Then we spent a weekend together with The Big Activity Book for Digital Detox and rediscovered that life can be so much more than clicks, likes, and latent anxiety. This book is the most important purchase you will ever make."—Brian Platzer, author of The Body Politic
"We could all use a digital detox. This book is perfectly on point, filled with humor and wit."—Karen Robinovitz, founder of Digital Brand Architects and the Sloomoo Institute
"The Big Activity Book for DigitalDetox is an incredible twofer—not only will it help curb your screen addiction, but it provides endless entertainment for all that newfound free time you'll have once you stop checking your high school boyfriend's Insta stories. I laughed, I cringed, I word searched. And in and amongst the clever silliness (a Meredith Grey coloring page sees into my soul), I found some real inspiration to stop scrolling and start living. And most importantly, I put my phone down!"—Rachel Bertsche, author of The Kids Are in Bed
"An ironic, clever, and hilarious way to get me to finally close my mail app, text messages, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tik Tok—you get it. Jordan and Erin's style is engaging and enjoyable, with truly LOL-worthy exercises and games, and it's also a compelling workbook of art."—Skyler Bouchard, TV host and blogger, @diningwithskyler
