Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Attention is a “little-noticed and underrated mental asset,” sorely tested among modern distractions but essential to success in work, play, relationships, and self-awareness, asserts Goleman, psychologist, journalist, and author of Emotional Intelligence (1995). In fact, the ability to focus, more than IQ or social background, is the key to performance and success. Neuroscience, case studies, and personal experience contribute to Goleman’s exploration of focus, which includes concentration, selective attention, open awareness, self-awareness, empathy, and systems awareness. He breaks them down to inner, other, and outer focus. Among examples of the significance of focus: a doctor’s ability to shut down emotions to focus on gory medical procedures; an epidemiologist’s attention to patterns and systems to track the human connections that lead to global pandemics; and a gamer’s focus on spatial perception, decision making, and ability to track objects. In commerce, education, sports, and personal life, Goleman offers concepts and techniques, including mindfulness and meditation, to train ourselves to be more focused, exercising those areas of the brain involved in focusing attention. An engaging, wide-ranging look at attention and intelligence. --Vanessa Bush

Review

Goleman appears to have the measure of his readers. In Focus, he cleverly employs short chapters littered with case studies to engage professionals swimming against a tide of electronic correspondence ... A highly readable manifesto for turning our smartphones off once in a while * Financial Times * From the best-selling author of Emotional Intelligence is this collection on attention, about our age of rampant distraction. Goleman says both focused attention and mind-wandering are necessary for well-balanced, insightful brains ... This is a riveting read * Irish Examiner * Focus certainly recounts some diverting anecdotes * Ed Smith, The Times * Sure to provoke oodles of debate about declining attention spans in the young * Bookseller *
