Dear book readers and followers of this group,
 
For me even the very idea of ‘the organized mind’ sounds fictional. I face large amounts of information every day and careful folder management is part of my daily research and work. After encountering the title of the book suggesting that thinking straight is possible, I am eager to learn how to do that and possibly control the ‘noise’. Do you also have a good reason to read this book? Yes/No/You don’t know?

I invite you to read Levitin’s book and share your opinion about it and your experience before leaving for a Christmas break.

In The Organized Mind, Daniel J. Levitin uses the latest brain science to demonstrate how those people excel—and how readers can use their methods to regain a sense of mastery over the way they organize their homes, workplaces, and time.
With lively, entertaining chapters on everything from the kitchen junk drawer to health care to executive office workflow, Levitin reveals how new research into the cognitive neuroscience of attention and memory can be applied to the challenges of our daily lives. This Is Your Brain on Music showed how to better play and appreciate music through an understanding of how the brain works. The Organized Mind shows how to navigate the churning flood of information in the twenty-first century with the same neuroscientific perspective.
