maggie jackson
Her acclaimed book Distracted sparked a global conversation on the steep costs to our tech-centric, attention-deficient modern lives. With a foreword by Bill McKibben, the book reveals the scientific discoveries that can help us rekindle our powers of focus in a world of overload. Named a Best Summer Book by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and featured in media worldwide, Distracted offers a “richly detailed and passionately argued … account of the travails facing an ADD society” (Publishers Weekly) and “concentrates the mind on a real problem of modern life” (The Wall Street Journal).
