This feels like an important and timely book filled with important and timely ideas.

The topic of attention is one that has, um, had my attention lately. I’m aware how much I have to work harder to stay focused on a particular idea or task. I’m aware how much that this same struggle for attention is part of a broader conversation in our culture.

And in a twist of irony, I’m aware of how interested I was in reading this book. And how much I struggled to stay engaged through the whole of it.
