In her groundbreaking first book, 24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week, Shlain, who has been recognized by Newsweek as one
of the “Women Shaping the 21st Century,” takes readers on a provocative and entertaining
journey through the past, present, and future of ideas about time and technology.


All the while, she explains how going offline one day a week for a decade with her husband and two
daughters (age 16 and 10) has completely transformed and enhanced her and her family’s life, giving them more time, productivity, connection, and presence.


Tiffany’s films and work have received over eighty awards and distinctions including being selected for the Albert Einstein Foundation’s Genius: 100 Visions of the Future. NPR named her UC Berkeley address as one of its best commencement speeches and her films have premiered at top festivals including Sundance.
