This is a rather engaging book about a focused and attentive life. This book draws much research in neurological field to discuss about how "multitasking" is damaging our ability to learn, and to truly experience the daily living experience. The author also talked a lot about meditation and yoga, and ADHD type of fast paced life where we pay partial attention to multiple things around us. "The garden of life is perhaps just an asphalt pavement for those who are talking on their cellphones and staring at their blackberry all day". But this book does have a whiff of self-help and psych-pop.
