All over the world, our ability to pay attention is collapsing. In the US, college students now focus on one task for only 65 seconds, and office workers on an average manage only three minutes. New York Times best-selling author Johann Hari went on an epic journey across the world to meet the leading scientists and experts investigating why this is happening to us – and discovered that everything we think we know on this subject is wrong. (Stolen Focus website)

Recommended by many, including Oprah, Hillary Clinton and Stephen Fry, Stolen Focus is next up for the ICONic Book Club. We all can relate to reaching for our phones or being distracted when sitting down to a task. So if this is something you’d like to explore, this read is for you! You’ve got two months to complete the reading (or listen to the audiobook), then join the discussion on Thursday, 1 September 2022 to share your thoughts and hear those of fellow ICON members. We’ll share some resources with you prior to the discussion as food for thought.
