Meet Jenifer Joy Madden
- May 17, 2016
The author of How to Be a Durable Human comes to Arlington this Wed., May 18th, at 7PM
In How to Be a Durable Human, an unprecedented handbook for being a human in the 21st century, readers learn to refresh in themselves what has been inadvertently trammeled by their close association with smart phones and other devices of personal technology. Gleaning advice from renowned thought leaders including TED talks curator Chris Anderson, Vietnamese Buddhist philosopher Thích Nhất Hạnh, and U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, author Jenifer Joy Madden offers practical tips and strategies for increasing durability, covering areas ranging from extending attention span, to accessing ingenuity, to getting better sleep.
The book is the second in Madden’s Durable Human series and is the practical follow-on to her inspirational The Durable Human Manifesto: Practical Wisdom for Living and Parenting in the Digital World. Both titles artfully and accessibly reconcile the ever-increasing presence of technological devices with the traits of happy and healthy adults and children.
