The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload

The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information OverloadThe Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload by Daniel J. Levitin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This is long book (481 pages including notes) and I'm struggling! Although I'm interested, I find my eyes closing - the same thing when I watch documentaries on TV - I'm interested but end up going to sleep and missing the choice bits. At least with this book, when I nod off it falls on me and wakes me up! To be sure, it contains some excellent ideas how to organise one's life - many of which I do anyway.

I think to myself, I'm 70 years old so it is possible that age and experience count for quite a lot. One thing I discovered is that I am a "medical minimalist" meaning that I interact with doctors and medicine as little as possible (p.261). I didn't know it had a name!

Hi Tammy, I'm not the same Eleanor! I knew Eleanor Bullen (now living in South Africa) and I knew Ant Hill but not the others.
Thanks for your interest
