The key to personal choice, and even happiness, is to gain control of our attentionour mental lives. Matthew Crawford is the author ofShop Class as Soulcraft, which challenged our notions about what we do and how it affects our sense of self (and our happiness). This new book addresses the crisis of attention: where we focus — or cannot focus--equally affects our sense of self.As our mental lives become more fragmented, what is at stake often seems to be nothing less than the question of whether one can maintain a coherent self.The key to a better life then is to get command not just of one's physical environment, but of one's mental life, too. LikeShop Class as Soulcraft, Crawford uses case studies as well as entertaining musings from his own personal observations to describe the fundamental shift surrounding attention that is happening in our culture. From making a surfboard, to parenting, to anxiously navigating the inside of an airportall provide clues to a phenomenon that we increasingly experience, but could not put into words, until now. An accessible and food for thought kind of look at what our difficulties with attention mean for us as free thinking people.
