Book club: Stop Reading the News: A manifesto for a happier, calmer and wiser life by Rolf Dobelli

Have a break from the news at Christmas! Rolf Dobelli hasn’t read the news for a decade. This book describes his philosophy and makes some interesting points.

Rolf describes the damage news does to our concentration and well-beings and how a misplaced sense of duty can misdirect our behaviour. He offers guidance on the benefits of living without news – less anxiety, more time, more insights and less disruption.

We’ll certainly be looking at the news differently, and a bit less often, from now on.
