            Stolen Focus: Why You Can't Pay Attention

            Stolen Focus: Why You Can't Pay Attention (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Hari, Johann

            Part of the experience of being alive in the twenty-first century is the feeling that your attention span is collapsing, along with those of everyone around you including your children. Why have we lost our ability to focus? What are the causes? And most importantly how do we get... it back? In Lost Focus, internationally bestselling author Johann Hari sets out on a global investigative journey into our shortening attention spans. He tells us what he learned from spending three months off the internet, reveals the inside story of the war to grab our attention that is waged every day, and explores why those prescribing mood stimulants to 10% of children in schools are getting it so wrong. Drawing on more than two hundred interviews with the world's leading experts on attention problems, Lost Focus moves beyond individual solutions towards a collective understanding of a problem facing us all. Only by first solving the attention crisis, Hari argues, can we turn to fixing the issues we care about most and sustain the attention to build a better society.

            A journey through the cutting-edge science of how our mindset shapes every facet of our lives, revealing how your brain holds the keys to unlocking a better you What you believe can make it so. You've heard of the placebo effect and how sugar pills can accelerate healing. But did... you know that sham heart surgeries often work just as well as placing real stents? Or that people who think they're particularly prone to cardiovascular disease are four times as likely to die from cardiac arrest? Such is the power and deadly importance of the expectation effect--how what we think will happen changes what does happen. Melding neuroscience with narrative, science journalist David Robson takes readers on a deep dive into the many life zones the expectation effect permeates. We see how people who believe stress is beneficial become more creative when placed under strain. We see how associating aging with wisdom can add seven plus years to your life. People say seeing is believing but, over and over, Robson proves that the converse is truer: believing is seeing. The Expectation Effect is not woo-woo. You cannot think your way into a pile of money or out of a cancer diagnosis. But just because magical thinking is nonsense doesn't mean rational magic doesn't exist. Pointing to accepted psychology and objective physiology, Robson gives us the practical takeaways we need to improve our fitness, productivity, intelligence, and happiness. Any reader who wants to take their fate into their own hands need only pick up this book.
