The Impact of Technology on Behavior & Happiness

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Behaviors are changing.

But why?

The Great Recession and 2008 American presidential election triggered a technological and social media boom that has exploded into pillars of daily life and business. Information comes at us in tidal waves of fact and fiction, and crowded heads are changing behaviors at greater velocity than ever before. Device ownership is up, digital addiction is skyrocketing, patience is dwindling, and attention spans are plummeting. Social media has gone from a fun community to a darker, more sinister information-gathering industry that sells what it learns to businesses, politicians, and sinister forces. 

Young adults are struggling too, as college campus statistics show rises in depression and suicides, while coping skills and resilience are falling. Cell phone separation causes anxiety and time spent immersed in devices continues to escalate. The list is long and lengthening.

Globally respected behaviorist Ocean Palmer meticulously lays out the last decade’s technology back story and explains how increased use of multiple devices is triggering change. He explains where we were, where we are, and where technology is heading. He identifies dozens of changing behaviors, and explains how these activities help or hinder the pursuit of happiness. The research is thorough. The results are startling.

“The Impact” doesn’t simply explain why heads are crowded and behaviors are changing. More importantly it gently explains how to increase cognitive awareness to protect yourself at all times and help others you care about.

After all…if YOU don’t protect you, who will?
