I study people, technology, and the worlds they make. My latest book, SHORTER: WORK BETTER, SMARTER, AND LESS-- HERE'S HOW (Public Affairs 2020), shows how companies can move to 4-day weeks without cutting salaries, reducing profits, or sacrificing productivity. It builds on my last book, REST: WHY YOU GET MORE DONE WHEN YOU WORK LESS (Basic Books 2016), which explores the role that deliberate rest plays in the lives of creative and productive people. The latest paperback edition features a foreword by Arianna Huffington. REST builds on ideas I started exploring in THE DISTRACTION ADDICTION (Little, Brown & Co. 2013), which explained how we can use information technologies to stay focused and be more creative, rather than distracted and fractured. Together, these books have been translated into more than twenty languages, from Arabic to Chinese to Icelandic to Spanish. I studied history and sociology of science at the University of Pennsylvania, and have held fellowships at Williams College, University of California-Berkeley, and Microsoft Research Cambridge. I'm currently Global Programs Director at 4 Day Week Global, and work with companies, governments, and nonprofits interested in implementing a 4-day week.
