The Organized Mind:Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload

Daniel J. Levitin

A professor of neuroscience and author of the best-selling This is Your Brain on Music, Levitin now offers advice about our brain on overload. Some people never need a calendar and won't miss a single appointment while some of us can't remember where our keys are 10 minutes after coming in the house. How we compartmentalize and organize information is critical, especially now that everyday brings more distractions. Once you understand how the brain processes what reaches it, you can learn to focus attention on what matters, recognize what might be important later, and zero in on details that lead to good decision-making.
