RAPT Attention and the Focused Life

by | Read by Laural Merlington

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Winifred Gallagher's decision to focus as a way to get through cancer treatment went further than most; it led to her study of attention. Her book on "choosing the focused life" considers just about everything involved with human focus and attention. Stress, information overload, emotions, and Ritalin use in children are among the topics. Laural Merlington keeps listeners' attention focused on Gallagher's tour of research, making the human angle come alive as she discusses studies and theories. Gallagher's book won't teach listeners how to change their lives—for that, try a meditation CD—but it will give listeners insight into their own thought processes and get them started on improving their focus.
