O steal it backAccessible and inspiring this book features 131 surprising and innovative exercises to help you tune out white noise get unstuck fro. This was a delightful as well as educating read focusing on the concepts of attention and concentration The writer Rob Walker offers 131 concentrationobservation examples or as Walker puts it 131 opportunities for joyous exploration in all its dimensions that one can practice in his everyday life He writes Paying attention is the only thing that guarantees insight it is the only weapon we have against powerApart from that there is an interesting introduction where Walker analyzes the notion of paying attention and its vital importance for human beings There is a number of references on other academics or not writers whose work on the subject help the readers to understand what is the point of the art of noticingOne can see The Art of Noticing as a useful guide for all who wish to take another step in the direction of mindfulness and enhancing conscientiousness Some of the concentration exercises or thought experiments as Walker defines them are really challenging and intriguing Personally I can t wait to follow some of the most stimulating ones and I firmly believe that they will prove to be truly helpful The number one enemy for a keen observer is distraction which can take many forms especially today in an age where the subject is exposed to an overwhelming amount of information through the web and mass media If you are zealous supporter of self improvement and you are interested on new ways of strengthening your mind this is definitely the most pertinent book which further offers many references for those who are fascinated and want to delve deeper into the subject Finally I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing a free ARC of this title
