Stolen Focus: Why You Can’t Pay Attention and How to Think Deeply Again

Stolen Focus: Why You Can’t Pay Attention and How to Think Deeply Again, by Johann Hari

If you’ve ever felt frustrated about your inability to focus in our frenetic age, this book might give you some answers. Rather than squaring blame from our digital addiction on a lack of willpower, and therefore the power to address it, Hari instead convincingly argues that our stolen focus is beyond our power to solve as individuals.

Overcoming this and regaining our focus requires collective action, and Hari shares ideas of where to start. You might throw the book across the room, but you’ll pick it back up again, because his case is that compelling.
