书名：Your Brain at WorkStrategiesforOvercomingDistraction,RegainingFocus,andWorkingSmarterAllDayLong
Meet Emily and Paul, the parents of two young children. Emily is a newly promoted executive in a large corporation, while Paul has his own business as a consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. For them, just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task. In this book, we travel inside the brains of Emily and Paul as they attempt to sort the vast quantities of information they're presented with and figure out how to prioritize, organize, and act on it. Fortunately for Emily and Paul—and for readers of Your Brain at Work —they're in good hands: David Rock knows how the brain works—and more specifically, how it works in a work setting. Your Brain at Work explores: Why your brains feels so taxed, and how to take full advantage of your mental resources Why it's so hard to focus, and how to better manage distractions How to maximize your chance of finding insights that can solve seemingly insurmountable problems How to keep your cool in any situation, so that you can make the best decisions possible How to collaborate with others more effectively Why providing feedback is so difficult, and how to make it easier How to effectively change other people's behavior Rock shows how it's possible not only to survive in today's overwhelming work environment but to succeed in it—and still feel energized at the end of the day, with a sense of accomplishment.
@ mad_apple 这本书让人重新领会到及时阅读优秀英文书籍的重要性。这是一本优秀的科普书，作者用故事讲知识，并且用了科普作家一般很难想到的采访科学家的方式获取科学进展、科学家insight。看得很开心，很受用！ @ 林@语堂 《高效能人士的思维导图》的英文版。 @ goldenwalden David Rock记住这个名字了，科学的研究方法是王道 @ 平凡的老鱼 开始不知道有中文版的，看了看发现语句简略，相对还好理解一些。这是一本好书，虽然最后第四部分有点扯。 @ M. Tong 秒杀一切时间管理书籍 @ 三拳超人 最喜欢的是作者把大脑比做一个舞台，不同的演员轮番上场，以及同一个情境前后两种不同的处理方式。再次为厉害的科普作家点赞！ @ ノラ 我的limbic arousal太强烈 @ 李睿 浅显易懂的脑神经科普 @ JimmyZhang 需要再重读两编 @ 我心飞翔 很牛逼的书，豆瓣9.2实至名归
