    The book investigates the concept of information 
    overconsumption. In the 21st century, we are 
    bombarded with vast amounts of information each day 
    as a consequence of the ever-growing digital age. Prior 
    to the introduction of the web, material was harder to 
    source; therefore individuals were more selective over 
    what information they choose to read. This contrast in 
    how we read information today as apposed to pre-digital 
    times inspired me into investigating the processes of
    navigation and filtering through information on-screen. 
    This book is therefore an outcome of my research and 
    development shown in a publication that represents the
    day-to-day journey of information consumption that an 
    average person may encounter while browsing online. 
    It expresses how a quick look on Facebook or a browse 
    on YouTube can turn into hours of procrastination or 
    overconsumption of immaterial knowledge.
