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!
I've heard this book in a much longer form years ago read by John himself. Here we have a 'new' version of the audio book and unlike many of the other books this one has a much better narrator. Here I was reminded of what is wrong with our current national and international leadership. I'm also reminded of basic leadership skills that I've forgotten and sometimes not applying and others I am. I found the book very informative about leadership and why we need some real leadership in the government, business, schools and our own homes.
