"Coaching people to optimize their brain's functioning is a new and much-needed field in our overloaded world. Civilization and our cyber world have clearly outstripped our brain's ability to deal with all that information, so we need all the help we can get. Lucy Jo gives practical tools to help all of us deal with the constant overloaded state in which we find ourselves immersed." -- John Ratey, MD, author of "A User's Guide to the Brain" and co-author of "Driven to Distraction"
