The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload by Daniel J. Levitin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received an e-mail from an online retailer about this book, the blurb about it cause my eye and I decided to borrow it from the library. Who wouldn't want to think straight while in the vast ocean of information overload?
First and foremost, this book hold a lot of scientific information and if you can't hand that, then don't even try. The content is really interesting, he goes over all types of subjects related to the mind. My two favorites were the sections about multi-tasking, specifically how harmful it is, and why we can't keep track of things like if we've taken our daily medicine.
The book was interesting, but got dull after the half-way point. It was so fact driven that portions of the flow sagged. I was looking for something earth shattering to help me with my mental organization, when all I really got was some neat things to think about.
