Publisher's Synopsis

'Michael Gentle has succeeded in writing a book that is neither an anti-tech rant nor a call for a return to some idyllic past. An entertaining read.' - François Jolles, CIO, International Union for the Conservation of Nature, Switzerland

There was life before Google and smartphones, but few would recognize it today.

We had more free time, as we didn't spend hours on social media. Our children roamed free and learned to fend for themselves. We enjoyed the freedom and space that came from being unreachable, and we couldn't take work home.

We didn't need to invent slow living; it was part of the deal!

See how the last unconnected generation used to live. Catch the tempo of everyday life, from home and school to work and leisure -Â and perhaps reflect on what we might learn.
