5.0 out of 5 stars A most relevant and brilliant book, 22 July 2009
This review is from: Rapt: Attention and the Focused Life (Hardcover)
This book is about attention and how the way we use it affects life in all of its aspects.

The author uses state of the art research findings to describe how our attention works and how to make best use of it when we want to feel better and get the most from our day/life, when we work as well as in our personal lives. Moreover, the author discusses some of the common attention-pitfalls that have a significant detrimental effect on our lives.

The book is very well written, which makes it seem like you are having an enlightning conversation rather than as if you were consulting the latest research.

Personally, this book has confirmed my belief that it really matters what we attend to. Common sense might say there is only one way to experience life, but the opposite is actually the case. Making the effort of carefully choosing what to attend to (and what not to attend to) is no less than life-changing.
