We're more wired than ever: cell phones on our hips, laptops, email, instant messaging. The killer apps are killing us. Technology was supposed to make it easier for us, but we are more out of balance and out of touch with the things in life that are most important to us than we were a decade ago. Orloff and Levinson will help readers to find that sense of balance so they can handle the highwire act of living and working without flaming out.
