In The Distracted Mind, leading psychologist Larry Rosen and pioneering neuroscientist Adam Gazzaley explain why our minds have become addicted to email, text messages, virtual worlds, and social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Through compelling true stories and scientific research, they show how digital distractions affect every aspect of life, from work, safety, and communication to our relationships and health.
The way our brains work mean we're all too easily hijacked by 'weapons of mass distraction', but there are countermeasures we can take. Rosen and Gazzaley offer proven strategies for regaining and retaining control over where we choose to focus our attention, making The Distracted Mind essential listening for anyone who wants to make best use of their brain today.

So sorry I didn't listen to a clip before I bought the book. The subject is fascinating, but the narrator is so annoying it's almost comical. Or would be comical if in hadn't wasted my money on the book.
The entire contents of this book could be condensed into a 15 minute ted talk. It is very interesting but heavily padded with supporting, but not very entertaining, stories.
