On the off chance someone reads this

I lost track of how many times the author uses the idiom ”on the off chance”... The writing could also use some work in general. Narration was ok.

All the good reviews must be bogus.

Ironic the book is supposed to be about focus. I was driving when I began listening, but soon realized I was having a really hard time focusing. I had terrible difficulty understanding what the writer was trying to say. I listened intently, trying to really focus so I could figure out was the problem with my hearing or the writing. After a good 15 minutes of slogging through very strange sentence structure and convoluted phrasing, as well as bizarre word usage, I decided it certainly wasn't my ability to comprehend, but it was the author's extremely poor craftsmanship. I suspect that English is not his first language. Maybe not even his 3rd or 4th language. In fact, I don't think an English speaking person put this manuscript together. I think this was written in another language and run through Google translator or something. Really dreadful writing and worse, nothing but the most basic commentary on focus: Focusing is good. Focusing will make you work better. Only the author uses about 15 words to say the first sentence and about 30 words to say the next sentence.

I rarely write reviews and this is my first bad review. But this author needs to have more respect for the profession: hire an editor and a decent translator. Don't try to pass yourself off as an expert when you clearly know very little about your subject.

This is mostly common sense.

I cannot say that nothing in this book is helpful. it has some very great tips for improving concentration and productivity. The problems I have with the book are as follow:
1. It is mostly common sense.
2. It states a lot of the same information over and over again in a manner that is redundant. There are several parts of the books that can be summarised in the line "to have the focus you need to concentrate". Well, of course, you would need to concentrate in order to have focus as the two terms are synonymous.
3. One of the chapters is straight up a list of apps that are useful for productivity, which is the same information you could find in any app store in the "productivity" category for FREE.
4. At the end of the book, the author goes on for some time trying to persuade the reader to give him a good review and rating for this book. It feels very strange as none of the other books/audiobooks I have tried ever tried to shill their own product to me, especially not quite so strongly.
5. The simplicity of this book, as well as the information in it, is something any college student or even just a person with the ability to think logically could write in a much more concise manner. Nothing in this work is groundbreaking or goes farther than things one can discover for themselves upon reflection and perhaps 30 minutes of basic psychology research on the issue.
6. Very predictable and dull. Has the vibe that literally anyone could write this without the requirement of significant skill.

I know it sounds very harsh, but with such a title I expect to gain more than one or two tips for lessening distractions. I expected a lot more from this book and was very sorely disappointed. Do Not Buy if you have read other books on this topic, you will not find any new information here, other than what sounds like an app commercial.

A Worthwhile Listen

This listen provided a lot of practical advice about creating and maintaining focus. The techniques are not complicated, and many are common sense, however, we often need a reminder to apply these types of techniques. I highly recommend this book. I know it will improve my life, as I a believe it will do for most listeners.
