Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the digital age. While we take for granted much of the technology that surrounds us and the way it has changed the way we work and relax, it's actually very important to recognize just how much it has impacted our lives. Today we are constantly bombarded by information and stimulation and it is taking its toll on our brains. Meanwhile, the expectations placed on us by our work have only increased as a result of greater productivity tools and enhanced connectivity.
And it's not just technology that has changed life for us either. The demands placed on us in other areas have also increased. The world is more populous, living costs have gone up and our roles in society have changed. More and more women are now working full time, which while a good thing, has created new challenges in trying to raise and care for our children. The roles of men have likewise become increasingly uncertain and competition for employment is fiercer than ever. Don't get me wrong - none of this is bad in itself! Having greater access to entertainment, being able to communicate with anyone in the world and enjoying greater equality than ever before are all good things.
The state of the economy is a little less rosy. But all in all, times are good. The problem? We're having a hard time keeping up with all this change! And it's leading to burnout.
For a great number of us, the demands placed on us are simply too great for us to shoulder. The constant stimulation and constant bombardment of information is leading to burnout. And knowing how to get what we want from life is seemingly impossible.
Our brains evolved in entirely different environments and they simply aren't designed to thrive under these conditions. The result is what we call "overwhelm". That means too much information, too much pressure, too much to do and too little time. We end up stressed, exhausted, and disorganized and it's just not good for our health.

Sounds like a robot!!

This is a HORRIBLE reader. I wish I would’ve listened to the sample first. My 7 yr old reads with more inflection than this gentleman. He truly sounds robotic. It is so distracting.
