The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload
Publisher,Penguin Books Ltd.
No. of Pages, 496
One of the best books I've stumbled upon in the last year. An eye opening and intriguing book filled with plenty of useful information. I encourage everyone to give it a chance and decide for oneself if it's the book for you. I would also like to say that it does need an update considering the rapid expansion of influence social media has on the masses.
Overall, this was a thought provoking and fascinating book about how the brain processes information and how to best utilize our most powerful tool to focus on important information and tune out the noise.
The author explains how our brains work, how they become cluttered, and why multi-tasking and doing too much at once is not only bad for your brain but overwhelming. By a well know near-scientist who writes for lay people. Could be edited down a bit, but you can read it in short sittings so that is OK. I like his explanation of why I think I am loosing short term memory, but actually I am not. Just seems that way because I try to do too much. Brain overload. Too much electronic communication.

This book is a great place to start if you want to understand more about memory. Recommended.
