The Organized Mind
Thinking Straight in the Age of Information OverloadBook - 2014
"We are drowning in an unprecedented deluge of data. At the same time, we're expected to make more -- and faster -- decisions about our lives than ever before. No wonder, then, that the average person reports frequently losing car keys or reading glasses, missing appointments, and feeling worn out by the effort required just to keep up. Somehow some people become quite accomplished at managing information flow. Daniel J. Levitin uses the latest brain science to demonstrate how readers can use these methods to regain a sense of mastery over the way they organize their homes, workplaces, and lives. With chapters on everything from the kitchen junk drawer to health care to gambling in Las Vegas, Levitin reveals how new research into the cognitive neuroscience of attention and memory can be applied to daily life. His practical suggestions call for relatively minor changes that require little effort but will have remarkable long-term benefits for mental and physical health, productivity, and creativity. Daniel Levitin is a professor of psychology at McGill University and the author of This is Your Brain on Music"--Provided by publisher.
