Review: Distracted: The Erosion of Attention and the Coming Dark Age

User Review  - Marcus - Goodreads

Terrible. An interesting topic but unlike Po Bronson in Nutureshock, where each chapter introduced a revelation then explained the research behind it. Ms. Jackson took a personal approach to ... Read full review

Review: Distracted: The Erosion of Attention and the Coming Dark Age

User Review  - Dan Tasse - Goodreads

Argh! Disappointing. I wanted to read a lot about attention, and this book seemed to be about that, but it mostly isn't. There are about 1.5 chapters (out of 9) actually on attention. Chapter 9 is the ... Read full review

User Review  - Dawn - Goodreads

The premise of the good sounded excellent, but the explanation and presentation of the research seemed poorly executed and it seemed as if the author was distracted. Part of the book sounded like a ... Read full review

User Review  - Courtney - Goodreads

I like the topic of the book, and found that it was easy to buy in to the notion of the distracted mind reflecting a distracted society. The belief that focus is key to thinking and learning is useful ... Read full review
