The headline isn't funny, but the writeup is better.

I just started reading this book - Indistractable - https://www.amazon.com/dp/194883653X?tag=cl03f-20

One of the premises the author establishes is that tech is not the cause of distraction, though it may exacerbate it. However if a distracted person gets rid of tech they will still find ways to distract themselves, and we need to work on removing the root cause of our distraction. This concept rang true with my personal experience. If the book helps reduce distractions itís worth its weight in gold.

Do either of you have experience about whether it helps reduce distraction

If what reduces distraction - a phone?

As long as you don't get distracted from finishing it
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
