I finished reading Stolen Focus by Johann Hari today 📚
I loved the premise of this book but found the second half unconvincing. Sure, lack of sleep or hunger or extended work hours does lead to loss of focus. But they do harm our society in a lot of other ways. We can’t point to every problem that plagues the world today and say it affects our focus. Similarly, ridding ourselves of the focus problem can help us solve even more significant issues. But without concrete actions, it is all talk.
The extent of topics that Hari wants to cover with the book is too spread for my liking. I wished it was more focused on the subject.
