“A beautifully illustrated pocket guide to small tips and tricks to step away, to log off and stop visiting the ‘drug dealer’. Tanya forced me to look honestly at my habits, and now I know how to change them.

The Pool

“A powerful tool for anyone seeking to reclaim their life from digital distraction and automated anxiety. Do-able suggestions for how one can nudge oneself back into 3D living.


“An excellent, engaging little digital detox book full of common sense advice to help us reconnect with ourselves and others, and to remind us how much of our “precious and limited” time is being wasted every day attached to screens of various sorts at the expense of real–life relationships.  An easy, entertaining and informative read, the book also contains many interesting facts about how new technology is reshaping our brains, for the worse, and disturbing a whole series of bodily functions. A must–read not only for parents but for all their screen–addicted offspring. Mine for one will be reading it shortly.”

Amazon UK 5* Review

“OFF is everything that is lovely about analogue. The book itself is finished to a high quality; you want to touch it, to hold it. Within, there is no preaching. The narrative points the reader in the direction of thinking about how to achieve a balance in their lives – how a life might actually be improved by logging off now and again. (Shocking, I know.) I greatly enjoyed the book and will be making some subtle changes to the role that my beloved tech plays in my life.”

Amazon UK 5* Review

Digital Detox Book: Stop Staring at Screens, Tanya Goodin

Tanya’s practical digital detox handbook for families ‘Stop Staring at Screens!‘ is a guide on how to cut down on rows about screens at home and develop your own family plan to live with them healthily and happily.


  • Find sanity-saving solutions and practical tips
  • Follow diagnostic quizzes
  • Identify key triggers
  • Address common issues
  • Learn what works best for you and your family

“This is a great little book, surpassed my expectations. It manages not to be preachy and acknowledges that most of us have this problem and gives small exercises to try and things to think about to start heading in the right direction.

It’s not unrealistic in suggesting you stop all screen usage, it rather focuses on positive relationships within the family. Not using screens when talking to each other is the first rule we have implemented, which is a small but important step in valuing each other over screens. Sharing our screen experiences is another idea that appeals to our family, enjoying our screen time without isolating ourselves.

It’s a good book to dip in and out of and it is helping us take small steps to redress the balance of screen time in our lives.”

“An excellent read – which doesn’t surprise me as I have seen the author on TV several times recently and she always seems to have good, credible ideas about keeping tech consumption under control. I also read her last book, Off, which, like this one is beautifully and clearly presented. A book on this subject for the whole family is most welcome – thank you!”
