Christina Crook is the award-winning author of The Joy of Missing Out: Finding Balance in a Wired World and a leading voice on technology and human flourishing. Through her writing and speaking, she reveals how key shifts in our thinking can enable us to draw closer to one another, taking up the good burdens of local work and responsibilities. She challenges the Western values of power, control, and success, revealing how wonder, trust, and discipline are central to the experience of being human and the keys to our joy. Her commentary on technology and our daily lives appear regularly in the media including the New York Times, Psychology Today, Women’s Health, NPR, CBC, Time of India, and Glamor Brasil. Most importantly, she is wife to Michael and mother to Madeleine, Thomas, and Caleb. They live in Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood where they once shared their run amuck home with another family of five. That’s a whole story on its own.
