THE WORLD BEYOND YOUR HEAD On Becoming an Individual in an Age of Distraction

by | Read by Robert Fass

Personal Growth • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Robert Fass provides an intelligent and considered reading of this complex exploration of attention and focus in contemporary life. However, despite his skill, the work is ultimately so dense and explores so many ideas that the listener may have a difficult time following the main thread. Overall, this book sometimes sounds like a philosophical treatise. Fass's voice is easy to listen to, but keeping up with Crawford's writing style in the audio format, ironically, may drive the listener to distraction--or at least to replay sections in order to better absorb the material.
