Overwhelmed by demands on your time? Baffled by the sheer volume of data? You're not alone: modern society is in a state of information overload. Neuroscientist Daniel Levitin investigates how and why our brains are struggling to keep up with the demands of the digital age.

The twenty-first century sees us drowning under emails, forever juggling six tasks at once and trying to make complex decisions ever more quickly. The Organised Mind is an antidote to this predicament: it explains exactly how to take back control of your life by storing key information in the physical world instead of the mind. Levitin takes us through every aspect of modern life, from healthcare to online dating to raising kids, showing that the secret to success is always organisation. He explains why there's no such thing as multitasking, why email is so addictive and why all successful people need a junk drawer.

In a world where information is power, The Organised Mind holds the key to harnessing that information and making it work for you.
