Announcing the publication of “The Facebook Diet” our first book in The Unplug Series taking a tongue-in-cheek look at our love of social media.
Already a Moms Choice® Gold award winner and USA Best Book award finalist, The Facebook Diet, by author and illustrator, Gemini Adams, features 50 hilarious cartoons that complete the question “You know you’re a Facebook addict when…” highlighting the most idiotic, embarrassing and cringe-worthy behaviours of our social media excess.
Full of funny digital detox tips that gently ‘poke’ at readers to occasionally ‘unplug’, this tongue-in-cheek look at our love of social media encourage us to examine the health of our high-tech habits and is guaranteed to bring a smile of recognition to Facebook junkies everywhere.
The first book in The Unplug Series® — a collection of seriously funny books for technology addicts, geeks and the overly wired world, The Facebook Diet is available in the UK on December 1st, 2013 for £6.99 from all major book retailers as paperback and eBook (ISBN: 9780955465635) and is featured in the Indiebound Christmas Books Catalogue humour section.
Adams, the author of several bestselling healthy living books says, “The struggle to focus, stay present and be really, deeply connected with others in this hyper-tech-connected world is a real and growing issue,” she adds, “Bill Hicks noted that watching TV was like taking a can of black spray paint to your third eye, comparatively, using Facebook is like taking a Dyson to your free time!”
She hopes The Facebook Diet will ‘tickle’ readers into realising how unhealthy some of their social media use really is.
Forthcoming titles in The Unplug Series® for 2014 include: The Twitter Diet, The YouTube Diet and The Instagram Diet.
