Product description

Review

Goleman appears to have the measure of his readers. In Focus, he cleverly employs short chapters littered with case studies to engage professionals swimming against a tide of electronic correspondence ... A highly readable manifesto for turning our smartphones off once in a while (Financial Times)

From the best-selling author of Emotional Intelligence is this collection on attention, about our age of rampant distraction. Goleman says both focused attention and mind-wandering are necessary for well-balanced, insightful brains ... This is a riveting read (Irish Examiner)

Focus certainly recounts some diverting anecdotes (Ed Smith, The Times)

Sure to provoke oodles of debate about declining attention spans in the young (Bookseller)

This book is about the importance of staying focused when distractions have never been greater ... Goleman's book ranges across psychology and sociology with a mix of anecdotes, research and personal observations (Irish Times)

Book Description

Bestselling author Daniel Goleman returns with a groundbreaking look at the secret to high performance and fulfillment: attention.
