Book description

STOP READING THE NEWS is a vital toolkit for managing the upsetting coronavirus news cycle and finding equilibrium and calm at a time of chaos and uncertainty

In 2013 Rolf Dobelli stood in front of a roomful of journalists and proclaimed that he did not read the news. It caused a riot. Now he finally sets down his philosophy in detail. And he practises what he preaches: he hasn't read the news for a decade.

Stop Reading the News is Dobelli's manifesto about the dangers of the most toxic form of information - news. He shows the damage it does to our concentration and well-being, and how a misplaced sense of duty can misdirect our behaviour.

From the author of the bestselling The Art of Thinking Clearly, Rolf Dobelli's book offers the reader guidance about how to live without news, and the many potential gains to be had: less disruption, more time, less anxiety, more insights. In a world of increasing disruption and division, Stop Reading the News is a welcome voice of calm and wisdom. Challenging, yet might point to the future of journalism. * Sydney Morning Herald * Rolf Dobelli writes clearly, intelligently and convincingly -- Gerhard Schroder Rolf Dobelli offers plenty of food for thought, and writes clearly - stimulating, amusing, brilliant -- Dr Christoph Franz, former CEO of Lufthansa, Chairman of Roche Worth reading to explore why news attracts. * The Courier Mail * Rolf Dobelli's works are informative, insightful, and accessible. In an age of celebrity ignoramuses, he is a true public intellectual. -- Lou Marinoff, Professor of Philosophy at the City College of New York Rolf Dobelli possesses one of Europe's finest minds -- Matt Ridley, author of The Evolution of Everything Rolf Dobelli is a virtuosic synthesizer of ideas. With wit, grace, and precision he melds science and art in hisjoyful pursuit of wisdom. -- Joshua Greene, professor of psychology, Harvard University, and author of Moral Tribes Rolf Dobelli is brilliant at converting evidence from scientific research into practical steps that improve personal outcomes. -- Robert Cialdini, author of the international bestseller Influence
