I found an Advanced Reader s Copy of this book at the library where I work so I was able to read this before the public gets to it this April None of the other librarians had taken it and I usually don t end up reading ARCs but after looking at the cover a couple times I found myself genuinely intrigued As I finished the first chapter I knew that I was going to read the entire thing I am personally in a state of constant love and hate as well as inspiration and anxiety in terms of my relationship to social media particularly Instagram and this book spoke volumes to me about a term that is curiously not found anywhere within these pages mindfulness Odell probably omitted that word intentionally as her goal in her personal and business life does not want to seduce readers into hot and trending terminology as we know mindfulness has become over the past few years Instead she clearly explains her goals with the book right away determined to tell us that How To Do Nothing Resisting The Attention Economy is not about convincing anyone to delete their social media accounts or to optimize their life via a mindset based on positivity or to learn how to focus on what it is you really want rather than caring about what others are telling you to want Nor is it a scathing critiue of the political andor libidinal economy Rather what Odell is talking about in her book is this simply a contemporary understanding of time and space But instead of these terms becoming vague philosophical abstractions she roots the concepts of time and space in a sensible context that of the here and nowOdell does not hide behind a mask of non identity She talks about where she grew up in California her half Filipino identity despite never being to the Philippines her experiences in the fast paced corporate world of Silicone Valley her boyfriend her father her friends her home life and hobbies bird watching her affinity for the art world and she uses all of her experiences to draw out a fascinating map of history geography and present socio political circumstance that surprisingly at least for the next few years will be able to speak to everyone that grew up with the proliferation of technology Taking this personal vantage point Odell traces back to the communes of the 1960s explains what worked about them and what didn t prepare yourself for a brilliant deconstruction of social design versus social activism She goes back to Ancient Greece and reminds us of the cynic Diogenes who lived life of resistance among the very community he denounced She describes something that happened not too long ago in California the strike of longshoremen who were over worked by manual labor and the string of problems they encountered and how they began to work to solve them How does this work into her title How To Do Nothing Well her argument is that and I agree sometimes when you do nothing you actually begin to pay attention to what s actually happening outside of yourself and conseuently begin to engage with the world in a new nuanced and intentional way a way that understands context which can be horrifyingly forgotten in the virtual realm and a way that understands the self in relation to everything else In a word doing nothing enables us to interact with the environment intelligently Using herself as an example she explains her love for art via a review of her fascination with the art of David Hockney via her interpretations of Thoreau via her analysis of writers native to this land She comes up with the concept of bioregionalism an acknowledgement of the natural world that is understood as both specific to geography yet contingent on all other geographies within the worldYou will find much about the expected or not topic of exploitative algorithms of current internet platforms A topic always due for a reiteration Keep in mind that this information is coming from first hand accounts of someone who worked in the industry for a time Most importantly you will find much about a form of presence that is inherently organic and ecological something I think humanity is dire need of as we go through an almost traumatic and actually traumatic for many loss of natural resources we inhabit a culture that privileges novelty and growth over the cyclical and regenerative Our very idea of productivity is premised on the idea of producing something new whereas we do not tend to see maintenance and care as productive in the same wayThis book is a product of the 21st century and it by no means intends to bring you something innovative and new Odell s writing is a reiteration and underlining of stuff we have all heard before stuff that Odell writes with enough attention intention and care that is becomes authentic Now hurry up and read the book before authenticity becomes the newest commodity Just kidding But read the book before it s too late Voluntate studio disciplina
