br>Why have we lost our ability to focus? What are the causes? And, most importantly, how do we get it back?
For 'stolen Focus, internationally bestselling author Johann Hari went on a three-year journey to uncover the reasons behind our shortening attention spans. He interviewed the leading experts in the world on attention, and learned that everything we think about this subject is wrong.
We think our inability to focus is a personal failing - a flaw in each one of us.
It is not. This has been done to all of us by powerful external
forces. Our focus has been stolen. Johann discovered there are twelve
deep cases of this crisis, all of which have robbed some of our
attention. He shows us how in a thrilling journey that ranges from
'silicon Valley dissidents, to a favela in Rio where attention
vanished, to an office in New Zealand that found a remarkable way to
restore our attention.
Crucially, he learned how - as individuals, and as a society - we can get our focus back, if we are determined to fight for it.
