Description

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Organized Mind by Daniel J. Levitin, read by Luke Daniels.

Modern society is in a state of information overload. Neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitin investigates how and why our brains are struggling to keep up with the demands of the digital age.

Why is email so addictive? Is multitasking really possible? And what do successful people keep in their junk drawers?

The Organized Mind debunks myth and presents one simple idea - storing information in the physical world instead of the mind - to revolutionize 21st-century living.

In a world where information is power, The Organized Mind holds the key to harnessing that information and making it work for you.

A book to read - not to listen to

Would you try another book from Daniel Levitin and/or Luke Daniels?

No

Would you recommend The Organized Mind to your friends? Why or why not?

I might suggest they dip into it for 'headlines' but not as a cover to cover read. Would I like to sit next to a person at dinner with this kind of 'organised mind? No thank you!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Terrible reading really impacted my enjoyment (?) of the book. Rushed and with no natural spacing or helpful intonation. And also, you end up having to read out full url links and table contents. This simply does not work

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No.

Any additional comments?

When a book does have some useful data, having it on audio is really annoying as it is so much more difficult to go back and revisit or reference.

Excellent book

Initially I thought that it was a longer version of David Allen’s GTD methodology, but it was only one chapter. Other chapters had lots of parallels with other books, but in its entirety this book rocks. For me it was a revision of dozen other books and researches I’ve read. For someone who hasn’t read all those books - this one will be d trembly useful.

Highly recommend!

Irreplaceable

Loved this book and bought it paper before audio so it will always be a reminder and reference. It is true what he said at the end , somethings in our life we felt lost without were really unneeded and there are much better alternatives once we let go of them.

Great and relevant

A necessary subject these days! The narrator reads it as good as the author would! I intend to buy the book on paper, also!
