Stolen Focus: Why You Can’t Pay Attention Pdf Review:
We think our inability to focus is a personal failure to apply enough willpower over our devices. The truth is even more disturbing. Our focus! has been stolen by powerful external forces that have left us uniquely vulnerable to corporations determined to raid our attention for profit.
Hari found that there are twelve deep causes of this crisis. F rom the decline of mind-wandering to rising pollution, all of which have robbed some of our attention. In Stolen Focus, he introduces readers to Silicon Valley dissidents who learned to hack human attention and veterinarians who diagnose dogs with ADHD.
He explores a jungle in Rio de Janeiro where everyone lost, their attention particularly strange. An office in New Zealand discovered a remarkable technique to restore workers’ productivity. Hari learned how we can reclaim our focus as individuals, and as a society if we are determined to fight for it. Stolen Focus will transform the debate about attention and finally show us how to get it back.
This book is fantastic, and I think everyone should read it. Although I’ve read dozens of books on this topic, there were quite a few chapters where Johann brought something new to the conversation.
I especially loved his chapters on the benefits of mind wandering as well as discussing some of the debates and controversies around the increase in ADHD diagnoses. He tried all sorts of self-help solutions, even abandoning his phone for three months, but nothing seemed to work.
So Hari went on an epic journey across the world to interview the leading experts on human attention, and he discovered that everything we think we know about this crisis is wrong.
