Over the past three decades, our daily lives have changed slowly but dramatically. Boundaries between leisure and work, public space and private space, and home and office have blurred and become permeable. How many of us now work from home, our wireless economy allowing and encouraging us to work 24/7? How many of us talk to our children while scrolling through e-mails on our BlackBerrys? How many of us feel overextended, as we are challenged to play multiple roles – worker, boss, parent, spouse, friend, and client – all in the same instant? Dalton Conley, social scientist and writer, provides us with an X-ray view of our new social reality.
