Book Description

Bestselling author Daniel Goleman returns with a groundbreaking look at the secret to high performance and fulfillment: attention. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"Daniel Goleman has surpassed himself in the breadth, depth, and readability of this fascinating meditation on what is most important for human, organizational, and planetary flourishing. Focusshows us how to go about paying attention in all the ways that really matter."--John Kabat-Zinn, founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress-Reduction and author of Mindfulness for Beginners

"Attention is so important that ordinary people take it for granted, while scientists subject it to microanalysis. Steering deftly between these extremes, Dan Goleman synthesizes what is known and what we need to know."--Howard Gardner, John H. and Elisabeth A. Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education Howard Garnder, John H. and Elizabeth A. Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education

"Goleman has provided a highly readable manifesto for turning our smartphones off once in a while."--Financial Times

"Daniel Goleman has written the perfect prescription for today's deficit of attention in business and life....Highly recommended!"--Chip Conley, founder of Joie de Vivre Hospitality and author of Peak and Emotional Equations

"I've been studying attention for more than a decade, but I learned something new on every page of Focus. It is a powerful guide for taking control of our attention and will lead you to nothing less than taking control of your life."--Tony Schwartz, author of The Power of Full Engagement and CEO of The Energy Project

"With compelling insights, wide-ranging examples, and cutting-edge science, Daniel Goleman makes the convincing case that the ability to focus is a key to excellence, in both our personal and professional lives-and also explains how to boost that focus."--Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Happiness Project --This text refers to the paperback edition.
