Book Description

We all want to believe we can drive responsibly and monitor distractions. But our attention is limited by nature, and we are often very subtly distracted from noticing things right in front of us. Depending on what you're doing while you're driving, you could literally miss seeing a giraffe grazing on the roadside. Because of distractions, many people have failed to see a gorilla beating its chest right in front of them, and this is no joke.

We really are not good multi-taskers when our attention is spread over tasks that require dedicated attention. That's why conversations on cellphones turn out to be a serious distraction to drivers. Read this book and see what you think. And then see what you think about whether it's fair to the rest of the people in your car or on the road when you allow yourself to be distracted in the special way that cellphones can distract.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cell phones and driving --nyet. June 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Passive cell phone use is keeping your phone on while driving. shut it off until the drive is over or interrupted. that is the message this book conveys very well. should be requried reading and part of a written driving test. Most automobile trip segments are shorter than a movie so shut the phone off or let your passenger do the talking on the cell. Make rest stops on interstates, WiFi hot spots to channel the behaviors we want to eliminate from the driving and passing lanes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inconvenient, but true April 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
We all think we're "saving" time when we're multi-tasking, but this book directly disputes that idea with research showing how we're not working toward "saving" lives with regards to driving and phone use. I highly recommend it... and need to continue to put it in practice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book I've Read on Distracted Driving So Far April 23, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is the pinnacle work on the topic of distracted driving. This book really cuts to the heart of the problem and examines in depth how the distraction occurs and looks at the psychology of why we do it. It cites several key studies on the topic of attention to prove exactly how distractions are created.

You may think distracted driving doesn't affect you, until it does, and then it's too late to do anything about it. We need to get ahead of this problem now and we should all take the pledge to drive cell free and keep the road safe for ourselves and our children.

5.0 out of 5 stars A shot to the gut around multi tasking! June 2, 2014
By Jeremy
Format:Kindle Edition
As a professional who's on the road most of the time this book hits to the heart around what I've believed I could do in efforts to multi-task. In a world that running at a faster and faster pace this caused me to stop and reflect on my priorities, my safety, and the safety of those around me. The Multi-Tasking myth was very impactful t and will change many of my habits as I move forward with travel both personally and professionally!

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you think. May 22, 2014
By Joel
Format:Kindle Edition
I know a ton of people who think they can multi-task while driving, and I have been one of them. This book gives you facts, data, and numerous examples of why you should focus more on the road and not on your phone. I suggest you read this book, and give it as a gift to others.
