Good read! Maushart convinces her 14 year old daughter, 15 year old son, and 18 year old daughter to join her in a 6 month electronic fast, and writes about the experience. They didn't go all Robinson Crusoe, but they got rid of computers, smartphones, tv, gaming systems, etc, while leaving the phone landline in place, and the kids were free to use electronics at school or friends' houses.
The most impressive thing to me was how her son, after a couple of weeks of withdrawal from technology, rediscovered his interest in making music, and by the end of the 6 months, he has a job to pay for private saxophone lessons to catch back up to his old school band friends, and is playing piano as well.
Maushart's voice was very funny and approachable, and nonpreachy, which made it a very enjoyable experiment to read about.
