Annotation:

Most of us are far less peaceful and more easily manipulated than in our younger years. We now live in the midst of a digital revolution that leaves us far more distracted and more deeply worried and all too often causes us to lose our mental and spiritual composure that threatens our relationships, our self-knowledge, our prayer, and our ability to make decisions. Our habits of using technology are tragically making us more insecure, isolated, and lonely, and leading us to seek consolation in machines. Now comes this practical guide for recovering interior peace through ordered activity. Youll be reminded of what you cannot change, and be led to strengthen your own interior faculties of sensing, understanding, choosing, and resting and rejoicing in the good and the true. Each chapter offers a valuable discussion of one quality of the soul that is essential to peaceful life, leading to self-examination and resolutions that you can carry throughout the day and return to for consolation.

Jacket Description/Flap:

These past two decades, modern technology has brought into being scores of powerful challenges to our interior peace and well-being. We're experiencing a worldwide crisis of attention in which information overwhelms us, corrodes true communion with others, and leaves us anxious, unsettled, bored, isolated, and lonely.

These pages provide the time-tested antidote that enables you to regain an ordered and peaceful mind in a technologically advanced world. Drawing on the wisdom of the world's greatest thinkers, including Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine, and St. Thomas Aquinas, these pages help you identify and show you how to cultivate the qualities of character you need to survive in our media-saturated environment.

This book offers a calm, measured, yet forthright and effective approach to regaining interior peace. Here you'll find no argument for retreat from the modern world; instead these pages provide you with a practical guide to recovering self-mastery and interior peace through wise choices and ordered activity in the midst of the world's communication chaos.

Are you increasingly frustrated and perplexed in this digital age? Do you yearn for a mind that is more focused and a soul able to put down that IPhone and simply rejoice in the good and the true? It's not hard to do. The saints and the wise can show you how; this book makes their counsel available to you.
