From the Inside Flap

We are all drowning in information, and the highest achievers are the most at risk. . .

Every day we are bombarded with new facts, figures, stories, theories and demands on our attention. We expect our brains to process ever higher volumes of data but all this information comes at a cost.

Relentless external pressure leads to information overload: absent-mindedness, poor decision-making, lowered efficiency and even a suppressed capacity for creative thought. Understanding this pitfall is ever more crucial to surviving and thriving in the digital age.

In The Organized Mind, neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitin investigates and explains exactly how we got here, from the early building blocks of language to why email is so addictive. There is an alternative to wrestling with all this information: Levitin demonstrates how to ease your mental burden by storing information in the physical world instead. Case studies and worked examples cover smarter decision-making, improving memory and attention, identifying what information is and is not important, and organizing your time, your space and your relationships successfully.

By analyzing how your brain works, The Organized Mind will help you function better, go further, and find more time to do the things you really want to do.
