Product description

Review

Hyperfocus does a remarkable job of unpacking the realities, obstacles, and best practices of managing the subtle but ever-present world of our conscious attention. All of us can get better at how, when, and on what we focus. This is an extraordinary, eye-opening, and research-based report of what affects us in this regard, and how to take advantage of this information to achieve greater satisfaction in our lives. Bravo, Chris.” —David Allen, author of Getting Things Done

“Becoming more productive isn’t about time management; it’s about attention management. I’d tell you more about that, but I lost my train of thought. Luckily this attention-grabbing book is here to help. Chris Bailey offers actionable, data-driven insights for sharpening your focus—and finding the right moments to blur it.” —Adam Grant, author of Originals and Give and Take; coauthor of Option B with Sheryl Sandberg

“The best productivity plans call for strategy, not just hacks or tactics—and Hyperfocus gives you strategy in spades. When you read this book, get ready to do your most important work!” —Chris Guillebeau, author of The $100 Startup, The Art of Non-Conformity, and The Happiness of Pursuit

“There’s no question: your attention is your most valuable asset. Everything in your life—your experience of life—comes from your attention. And Hyperfocus will teach you how to use this tool, how to hone it, leverage it, and even enjoy it. Pay attention to Chris Bailey—this book is well worth the focus.”—Peter Bregman, author of 18 Minutes
 
“Attention may be the most important asset of the twenty-first century. Hyperfocus takes decades of scientific insights and pairs them with practical applications to show us how best to manage and multiply our attention.” —David Burkus, author of Under New Management and Friend of a Friend

“I read Hyperfocus on my phone . . . but this book was so engaging I stopped checking email entirely! I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to do more of what matters in a dis­tracted world.” —Laura Vanderkam, author of What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast and 168 Hours

“Let me guess. You’re like me. You don’t have time to read this book. Or any book! Who has time for books anymore? Well, that’s perfect. Because it means you have the disease. And right now you’re holding the cure.” —Neil Pasricha, author of The Book of Awesome and The Happiness Equation
 
“In this practical and widely applicable manual, Bailey identifies distraction as an endemic problem plaguing the business world, and just about every facet of modern life as well. . . . Highly germane to any fast-paced workplace, this book is a must-read for readers seeking to regain control of their ability to concentrate.” —Publishers Weekly
