Publisher's Summary

Focus tells us how to find the focus among all the digital distractions in our world, so that we can create, focus on what's important, and find time for quiet and contemplation.
“At the heart of this simple book lies the key to many of the struggles we face these days, from being productive and achieving our goals, to getting healthy and fit in the face of fast food and inactivity, to finding simplicity and peace amidst chaos and confusion. That key itself is simple: focus. Our ability to focus will allow us to create in ways that perhaps we haven’t in years. It’ll allow us to slow down and find peace of mind. It’ll allow us to simplify and focus on the essential things, the things that matter most.”
—Leo Babauta

Awful reworking of The Power of Less

Any additional comments?

I loved Babauta's The Power of Less. I've listened to it three times and bought the ebook. This is a retread of it, only ironically completely unfocused. It's clearly just some blog posts strung together without much effort to make them into a focused whole. The ending features fellow bloggers reading their own "power of less" style essays, and they aren't very good. Aside from being a poor rewrite, Babauta rejects one of the key ideas in "The Power of Less," which could've been interesting but didn't seem convincing to me. (I'll leave the mystery to readers of Focus.) Anyway, I wish I hadn't gotten the book and now I'm leery of getting more by him for fear they'll also be retreads. (Zen to Done is like a first draft of The Power of Less and not recommended either.) Bottom line: Stick with The Power of Less, not this.

focus in living a simple life?

It's all about telling you that our life is busier than before (eg a decade ago).
