Thoughtful, well written and researched. If you've ever thought "hey, I'm addicted to social media or my phone or a game..." and then picked up your phone (or sat at your computer) and looked at or played said thing anyway ... this book is for you. 

As I read this book, I found myself stopping. And thinking. And evaluating myself. The author suggests reading through once and then reading again with the intention of doing the activities (which are simple and few). It’s a great idea.

What I loved most is that the author focused on her research, and interviews, and then accented them with her own issues/actions/addictions. Bored and Brilliant is a fascinating look at how technology has taken over and a lesson in how we can use our favorite apps and programs with more intention.
