In Real Life: Searching for Connection in High-Tech Times

Published by Parallax Press


My first book, available now from Parallax Press

Very highly recommended.
— Midwest Book Review
One of the best books I’ve read about the meaning and use of technology. It’s well-written, informed, humble, savvy, entertaining, direct, and useful.
— Howard Rheingold, tech author, teacher and artist
Can there be ‘sacred technology?’ Jon Mitchell convinces us that it is possible in this provocative and deeply spiritual exploration of our high-tech times.
— Rabbi David Wolpe, author and spiritual leader
