A brilliant book about one of the most important topics of our time -- Dr Rangan Chatterjee This mind-blowing book explains everything. Read it and be free -- Simon Amstell There's so much in this book . . . Unbelievable, juicy dynamite that you have to read -- Chris Evans I think this book is exactly what the world needs right now . . . I hope everybody buys the book. I promise you it will be worth your time and certainly worth your focus -- Oprah Winfrey Johann Hari writes like a dream. Hes both lyricist and storyteller but also an indefatigable investigator of one of the worlds greatest problems: the systematic destruction of our attention. Read this book to save your mind -- Susan Cain I dont know anyone thinking more deeply, or more holistically, about the crisis of our collective attention than Johann Hari. And this is a crisis that we must address if we are to meet any of the other pressing emergencies we face as a species, whether ecological or social. Which means that this book could not be more vital. Please sit with it, and focus -- Naomi Klein A story that so many of us have felt needs to be told, but whose cause and consequences are hard to capture and articulate without guesswork, prejudice or ideology. Hari not only achieves this and more, but he does so it with the pace, sparkle and energy of the best kind of thriller writer. I cant remember reading a book which made me shout out yes! Thats it! quite so many times -- Stephen Fry A highly original and wide-ranging investigation into the causes of our epidemic of flagging attention. Written with Haris trademark incisive prose, indefatigable search for scientific evidence vividly presented, and illustrated with telling anecdotes, Stolen Focus is a bracing and necessary wake-up call to us all -- Gabor Mat M.D. A fascinating journey into the mind and how it is being manipulated with devastating effects. Haris subject is something that is affecting us all and this seminal work will be one of the defining books of our era . . . Get off social media, switch off the TV, put down your smart phone and do one thing read this book -- Dr Max Pemberton Stop whatever youre doing and read this book. A deeply researched, disturbing, and yet ultimately hopeful exploration of the primal crisis of our time: our diminishing ability to focus on what really matters -- Rutger Bregman, author of HUMANKIND If you want to get your attention and focus back, you need to read this remarkable book . . . [Hari] has cracked the code of why were in this crisis, and how to get out of it. We all need to hear this message -- Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global An unbelievable storyteller . . . It might just change your life -- Steven Bartlett Thanks to this brilliant book, I have got to know myself and my fellow humans better. It educates and entertains you - the stories will suck any reader in, and then slowly change your mind. Everyone should read it. It has changed my habits - way beyond just putting away my phone more. Stolen Focus is a really important book -- Philippa Perry In his unique voice, Johann Hari tackles the profound dangers facing humanity from information technology and rings the alarm bell for what all of us must do to protect ourselves, our children and our democracies -- Hillary Clinton, former US Secretary of State An entirely necessary book, a miracle of clarity and depth, a resonant, deeply researched warning followed by a truly inspiring clarion-call to action. Read it and weep, then dry your eyes and join in -- Emma Thompson A visionary, systemic, revolutionary and practical guide for creating the new world. Through tireless research and genius insight Johann Hari certainly snapped me to attention. A life changing book -- V, author of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES Provided a staggering insight into the misery occasioned by our addiction to the idiocies of the web. If you have kids please read it * Spectator * Thi
