A little bit about… Nir Eyal
Nir Eyal was dubbed “The Prophet of Habit-Forming Technology” by The M.I.T. Technology Review. As well as being a best-selling author, he’s taught at Stanford, and has been featured in The Harvard Business Review, TechCrunch, and Psychology Today.
He literally wrote the book on how to build habit-forming products with his best-seller -‘Hooked’, and now teaches how to use the psychological triggers that makes apps and social media so ‘addictive’ to help people form beneficial habits.
His latest book – ‘In-distractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life’ is distraction’s kryptonite. Who better to tackle distraction than a man on the inside?
