The scoop is far and wide. We can't cease consistently checking it on our computing device displays, yet what's this doing to our minds?

Why will we get pleasure from gazing politicians being introduced down? Why are upheavals in distant lands usually so boring?

In the inside track: A User's guide, de Botton has written the final word advisor for our frenzied period, bound to deliver calm, knowing and a degree of sanity to our day-by-day (perhaps even hourly) interactions with the inside track machine.
