    This is not one of those Malcolm Gladwell'ish books that pretend to be clever, yet caters to the airport book buying crowd who needs something that digests easily, like fast food calories. No, this book actually has some very interesting unique content regarding focus and concentration, and it challenges some common concepts within that area. If you're interested in productivity and the brain: Get it!
