Can a book change your life? Absolutely. I use what I learned in Rewired every single day. Camille’s simple strategies for unplugging, recharging, and rewiring have helped me live and work with more purpose, more productivity, and more joy. I work better and smarter. I am more mindful. I am more present in my own life. I learned to set boundaries, to take time for myself, and to use technology the right way, so it doesn’t use me. Rewired rewired my life. I am so grateful to this wise woman!
Rewired offers refreshing insight in its clarity, heart, and scope. It’s more than about rewiring from technology; it is about plugging into life.
I just read Rewired and highly recommend it to my clients and friends in business, as well as my family and friends. Camille Preston, the author, helps us gain clarity in this crazy world we live in, a world in which we receive an endless flow of emails and information on the Internet. What can we do? We are losing productivity, fulfillment, and even enjoyment as we become slaves to the demands and pressures of this environment. Well, Camille says we must change, and that we can “unwire” and then “rewire” ourselves. Rewired gives very practical advice so that we may regain control. I’d say this is a must read.
Rewired is my savior. Once I picked it up, I couldn’t stop reading this wonderful book. It’s a quick read with great research and advice regarding how technology has impacted our lives and how we can learn to successfully manage the flow of being connected (i.e., wired). I’ve shared this information with my firm and have decided to work this book and its great information into our next consultants’ meeting as a new training and development opportunity. I highly recommend this book to anyone, both professionally and personally!
I loved Rewired. Camille Preston does a masterful job of confronting us with the self-inflicted powerlessness that results when we allow ourselves to be seduced by an “overwired” world. Unlike many who call for a return to a technology-free, bygone past, Camille challenges us to craft lives in which this same technology serves to enhance our humanity rather than diminish it. Well-written, highly practical, and extremely timely, this book is a must-read for professionals, managers, leaders—in fact, anyone with a cellphone!
In Rewired, Dr. Preston illustrates that small consistent changes can have a big impact on our overwired lives. But where to start? This book skillfully guides us and offers practical, science-based approaches and strategies to these challenging choices. We are shown how these small changes can launch noticeable life improvement, restore satisfaction, and perhaps literally “rewire” us. As a clinical psychologist and working mother, I know these issues all too well and understand the alarming rate of distraction and anxiety that has accompanied the unprecedented cerebral demands of this modern information age. This work is timely, important, and not a moment too soon. I look forward to recommending this valuable resource to my patients, friends, and family.
During a recent flight, I finally got an hour of being fully unwired and pulled out Rewired. I read it front to back and got so much out of it! It really encouraged me to keep at it. I am also recommending it to colleagues—lots of good lessons. Well done! Congratulations, and thanks!
I recently resigned from a fast paced 18 year financial career to enjoy a much needed sabbatical. Rewired is an exceptional book full of the tools that will help me work smarter but more importantlylive better as I reenter for another 18! This is a must read for wherever you are in your life.
It was a quick read yet detailed enough and with specific solutions and suggestions. I have since recommended your book to several of my girlfriends who are juggling kids, work (some in a traditional office and some as stay-at-home moms), husbands, friends and activities.
I was lost but now I have a clear direction to head in with an arsenal of great tools to support me.
