-Regain control of your frenzy
-Embrace effective uni-tasking (because multitasking doesn't work)

--Use your creativity to connect the dots
This groundbreaking guide is complete with stories of people who have learned to stop feeling powerless against multiplying distractions and start organizing their lives by organizing their minds.

Review by Library Journal (2012-01-01)

Hammerness (psychiatry, Harvard Medical Sch.) and Moore (codirector, Inst. of Coaching, McLean Hosp.) have joined their areas of expertise to help people overcome mental disorganization, distraction, and the resulting side effects of stress, anxiety, and frustration. Hammerness explains the ne uro science of brain organization while Moore coaches readers to regain order by "sustaining attention", "applying the brakes", "connecting the dots", and so forth. Readers will be able to relate to case studies and the all-too-common problems of chronic lateness, inability to focus, and chronic clutter. Those willing to work hard to gain more sanity in their lives will find help here.
