"An urgent and expert investigation into behavioral addiction, the dark flipside of today's unavoidable digital technologies, and how we can turn the tide to regain control. Behavioral addiction may prove to be one of the most important fields of social, medical, and psychological research in our lifetime. The idea that behaviors can be being addictive is new, but the threat is near universal. Experts are just beginning to acknowledge that we are all potential addicts. Adam Alter, a professor of psychology and marketing at NYU, is at the cutting edge of research into what makes these products so compulsive, and he documents the hefty price we're likely to pay if we continue blindly down our current path. People have been addicted to substances for thousands of years, but for the past two decades, we've also been hooked on technologies, such as Instagram, Netflix, and Facebook--inventions that we've adopted because we assume they'll make our lives better. These inventions have profound upsides, but their extraordinary appeal isn't an accident. Technology companies and marketers have teams of engineers and researchers devoted to keeping us engaged. They know how to push our buttons, and how to coax us into using their products for hours, days, and weeks on end. Tracing the very notion of addiction through history right up until the present day, Alter shows that we're only just beginning to understand the epidemic of behavioral addiction gripping society. He takes us inside the human brain at the very moment we score points on a smartphone game, or see that someone has liked a photo we've posted on Instagram. But more than that, Alter heads the problem off at the pass, letting us know what we can do to step away from the screen. He lays out the options we have address this problem before it truly consumes us. After all, who among us has struggled to ignore the ding of a new email, the next episode in a TV series, or the desire to play a game just one more time?

Lessons I learned:

1. Addiction can happen to anyone. It is not subjugated to one class or one group.

2. Limiting the behaviors before it starts helps a person realise that time constraints and reminders actually help prevent the behavior before it becomes an addiction.

3. Addiction can happen with anything. The trick and the lesson is to not turn it into a behavior that is either noticeable or disguised. Limit phones. Limit TV. Limit the Internet and a person will be fine. ( )

A little chilling in that modern tech seems to be about fostering addiction and finding ways to keep us obsessively connected. I've seen traces of this among people I know who respond to every ping of their phone like a lab rat or feel bad about themselves in relation to the posts of others on social media. Alter's premise that this is engineered by tech's creators is the chilling part. Where this seems really insidious is among children who have such widespread access to devices, especially with their implementation in schools in place of textbooks. Noteworthy: "Online interactions aren't just different than real-world interactions; they're measurably worse. Humans learn empathy and understanding by watching how their actions effect other people. Empathy can't flourish without immediate feedback and it's a very slow-developing skill." (40) Cloak those actions behind anonymity and there is big concern for human interaction. Some of the main ways technology hooks us is with cliffhangers, gamification, looping, positive reinforcement (likes on Facebook, for example), and escalation of challenges, all tapping into intrinsic human behaviors and triggering the pleasure center in the brain. Informative and not as doomsday as it would seem, this book's primary goal is to explain behavioral addiction: "Addiction is a deep attachment to an experience that is harmful and difficult to do without. Behavioral addictions don't involve eating, drinking, injection or smoking substances. They arise when a person can't resist a behavior, which despite addressing a deep psychological need in the short-term, produces significant harm in the long term. Obsession and compulsion are close relatives...." (20) and then to point out how it is triggered by the ever-present technology around us. Definitely scientifically accessible, Alter explains things with myriad research examples and anecdotes in layman's terms. Worth a read for the awareness it provokes and the alternatives it explores, though would have liked a little more of the latter. Balance helps: "Harmonious passions 'make life worth living' but an obsessive passion plagues the mind." (22) ( )

De auteur, Adam Alter, beschrijft hoe het komt dat meer dan de helft van de westerse bevolking inmiddels minimaal één digitale verslaving heeft.

I won an early release pre-print of this in a Goodread giveaway!.....it was a very good read.... I'm going to pass it on to a computer software specialist because I know he'll enjoy the irony. Grab a copy when it comes out... you will too! ( )

All in all, Alter wrote a compelling, informative book about the dangers and drawbacks of the technology that defines our lives. Anyone can learn something from this book. This book can provide information for those dealing with a video game addiction to understand what is happening and possible steps forward. At the same time, this book is informative for someone who has never played a video game but checks emails 25 times a day. We all can learn something from Irresistible and hopefully better prepare ourselves for the future of technology.
 
A clearly written account of a widespread social malady that is sure to gain further attention in coming years.

Addictive tech is part of the mainstream in a way that addictive substances never will be. Abstinence isn’t an option,
Most people spend between one and four hours on their phones each day—and many far longer.
Each month almost one hundred hours was lost to checking email, texting, playing games, surfing the web, reading articles, checking bank balances, and so on. Over the average lifetime, that amounts to a staggering eleven years.
On average they were also picking up their phones about three times an hour. This sort of overuse is so prevalent that researchers have coined the term “nomophobia” to describe the fear of being without mobile phone contact (an abbreviation of “no-mobile-phobia”).
Phones are disruptive by their mere existence, even when they aren’t in active use. They’re distracting because they remind us of the world beyond the immediate conversation, and the only solution, the researchers wrote, is to remove them completely.
