A no-holds-barred, no-filter look at what social media is doing to us as a society, and how we can deconstruct the online fantasy to change our own attitudes about modern womanhood. Why Social Media is Ruining Your Life tackles head on the bona fide pressure cooker of social comparison and unreachable levels of perfection that social media has created in our modern world. In her first book, Katherine Ormerod argues that we're all sitting on a dangerous, ticking time-bomb that will explode if we don't begin to take action. She uncovers how our social media addictions have broken our political systems, re-wired our behavioral patterns, destroyed our confidence and shattered our attention spans. Ultimately, Why Social Media is Ruining your Life will provide you with the knowledge, tools and weaponry to combat the most consuming, addictive force humankind has ever created.
