4.0 out of 5 stars Now I'm thinking, August 7, 2010
This review is from: Your Brain at Work: Strategies for Overcoming Distraction, Regaining Focus, and Working Smarter All Day Long (Hardcover)
If you want a book that goes beyond beating distractions but also understanding why they are frankly so distracting then this book is great. It helps you better understand the way that you work which arms you with exactly what you need to becoming more productive and in control.

I really enjoyed the examination that the books takes into exactly why your brain responds the way it does and the simple strategies you can use to be more in control. Probably most importantly it helps you understand the root cause of the issues that once identified can more easily be rectified.

The book is easy to read but with enough detail to be really engaging. It will appeal to those people who want to understand 'the why' rather than just 'the how'. Providing before and after examples throughout the book also makes each topic far more engaging because they are easy to relate to.

All in all, if you are interested in improving your productivity in ways that are permanent, which means changing the way you do things, then make some time to read this book.

What would have made the book better? What would have made it deserving of 5-stars?

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 12, 2010 4:29:28 PM PDT
Being a technical person I would have liked to see more depth in some of the explainations. Don't get my wrong, this is a great book and would be enjoyed by most readers. I found however the more that I got into the more I wanted. Perhaps that would be solved by a followup book?

I almost gave the book 5 stars but it didn't quite hold my interest enough to prevent me from putting it down, although it did go close. Thus my main reason for not awarding 5 out of 5 was that I wanted more time spent on each topic but I recognize this would not suit ever reader.
