Why have we lost our ability to focus and how do we get it back?
This is the question globally bestselling author Johann Hari asks in his newest book Stolen Focus, which strives to not only change, but also possibly save, our minds.
He unmasks the powerful forces that render us uniquely vulnerable to companies raiding our attention for profit, while casting a hopeful vision for reclaiming our waning attention spans, both as individuals and as a society. Johann is appearing live via video, in conversation with Amanda Collinge.
