Why our brains aren't built for media multitasking, and how we can learn to live with technology in a more balanced way. "Brilliant and practical, just what we need in these techno-human times." --Jack Kornfield, author of The Wise Heart Most of us will freely admit that we are obsessed with our devices. We pride ourselves on our ability to multitask--read work email, reply to a text, check Facebook, watch a video clip. Talk on the phone, send a text, drive a car. Enjoy family dinner with a glowing smartphone next to our plates. We can do it all, 24/7! Never mind the errors in the email, the near-miss on the road, and the unheard conversation at the table. In The Distracted Mind, Adam Gazzaley and Larry Rosen--a neuroscientist and a psychologist--explain why our brains aren't built for multitasking, and suggest better ways to live in a high-tech world without giving up our modern technology. The authors explain that our brains are limited in their ability to pay attention. We don't really multitask but rather switch rapidly between tasks. Distractions and interruptions, often technology-related--referred to by the authors as "interference"--collide with our goal-setting abilities. We want to finish this paper/spreadsheet/sentence, but our phone signals an incoming message and we drop everything. Even without an alert, we decide that we "must" check in on social media immediately. Gazzaley and Rosen offer practical strategies, backed by science, to fight distraction. We can change our brains with meditation, video games, and physical exercise; we can change our behavior by planning our accessibility and recognizing our anxiety about being out of touch even briefly. They don't suggest that we give up our devices, but that we use them in a more balanced way.… (mere)

I have been mulling over whether to give this book a 4-star review, a 3-star, or a 5-star. Finally, I decided on a 4-star.

There is much useful material in the book, however, I think that it could have been condensed. The book has been divided into three sections, after the introduction. A review of how the brain processes information is in section 1. I think that, if the authors had accompanied this with diagrams, it would have helped.

For a first-time reader, it will be difficult to follow.

The second part focusses on the psychological, or behavioral, aspects. The useful aspect of this part is that the authors have assessed the distractions as per ager groups. However, they seem to have focussed on external distractions, not internal ones. A lot of this information could have been condensed.

The last section, which comprises the recommendations, again, could have been simplified. You can find this information in many places.

Still, they have combined three aspects: the brain, the 'psychological', and the 'recommendations' into one book

This is immensely helpful. ( )

This book focuses on brain research that connects goal-setting and its challenges with the constant distractions, external and internal, that our brains are dealing with today - brains that are not designed for this constant onslaught of distractions. It ends with some suggestions on how to cope with this stress. Useful, clearly written. ( )
