Description

From 'one of the most influential thinkers of our time' (Sunday Times): how to respond to today's demands on our attentionIn this brilliant follow-up to The Case for Working with Your Hands, Matthew Crawford investigates the challenge of mastering one's own mind.

With ever-increasing demands on our attention, and with capitalism increasingly invading every space, how do we focus on what's really important in our lives?Exploring the intense focus of ice-hockey players, the flow of a cook in their element, and the inherited craft of building pipe organs, Crawford argues that in order to flourish, we need to return to lives where we establish meaningful connections with objects and the people around us.
