Stolen Focus: Why You Can't Pay Attention- and How to Think Deeply Again
By Johann Hari
Lamenting the ever-increasing domination of our attention by smartphones, social media, and other external forces, Johann Hari went on a personal journey to break free and reclaim his own forces.
His journey included interviewing global experts on human attention, as well as a summer spent in Provincetown, MA, where he completely unplugged in an effort to restore his ability to focus.
Stolen Focus reveals his findings and how our attentional problems are systemic forces that must be confronted rather than problems of individual self-discipline.
