The Organized Mind by Daniel J. Levitin
The Organized Mind by Daniel J. Levitin is an interesting look at how to organize our lives at work, home, and more in the age of information overload. His look at strategies and ways to organize are related back to the most current knowledge emerging on the neurophysiology of the brain. This book is just shy of 400 pages and at times reads a little laboriously like a textbook so this book is really more for the reader with interest in modern brain research and how it relates to our current age of information overload. Some of the more valuable nuggets were found starting on page 306 about multitasking vs. focus which is of course an ever so important topic in our current world of information overload. This book is more for the serious reader since it is definitely not the quick little motivational read so common in the business sector today. Based on that I would not recommend this book for the masses but it is worth the time for more serious readers interested in the topic. So as usual Hit The Books, They Don’t Hit Back!
