Stolen Focus: Why You Can't Pay Attention--and How to Think Deeply Again By Johann Hari Cover Image
$30.00
ISBN: 9780593138519
Availability: NOT IN STOCK - Usually arrives in 7 - 14 business days
Published: Crown - January 25th, 2022

This is one book that we all can benefit from reading. Our focus is challenged by many factors and while Hari covers the obvious ones (such as technology) he also brings to our attention other culprits that we can exert control over. He helped me understand the risks of shallow focus and convinced me of the perils of not “paying attention” to this issue.
