Overview

In everything we do, we are selectively paying attention to one thing over another. Rather than a passive ability, our attention consists of choices - ones that have more power to shape our experience than even the external world.

Winifred Gallagher is a freelance journalist, science writer, and best-selling author with a particular focus on behavioral science. In this book, Gallagher lays out the extensive effect our focus and attention can have on the path we take in life. Through research and personal stories, Rapt shows us how conscious management of attention can lead to an elevated mood, higher productivity, stronger relationships, and an overall better life.
