<b>"<i>Indistractable</i> provides a framework that will deliver the focus you need to get results."</b><br />- James Clear, author of <i>Atomic Habits</i><br /><br />You sit down at your desk to work on an important project, but a notification on your phone interrupts your morning. Later, as you're about to get back to work, a colleague taps you on the shoulder to chat. At home, screens get in the way of quality time with your family. Another day goes by, and once again, your most important personal and professional goals are put on hold.<br /><br />What would be possible if you followed through on your best intentions? What could you accomplish if you could stay focused and overcome distractions? What if you had the power to become "indistractable?"<br /><br />International bestselling author, former Stanford lecturer, and behavioral design expert, Nir Eyal, wrote Silicon Valley's handbook for making technology habit-forming. Five years after publishing <i>Hooked</i>, Eyal reveals distraction's Achilles' heel in his groundbreaking new book.<br /><br />In <i>Indistractable</i>, Eyal reveals the hidden psychology driving us to distraction. He describes why solving the problem is not as simple as swearing off our devices: Abstinence is impractical and often makes us want more.<br /><br />Eyal lays bare the secret of finally doing what you say you will do with a four-step, research-backed model. <i>Indistractable </i>reveals the key to getting the best out of technology, without letting it get the best of us.<br /><br />Inside, Eyal overturns conventional wisdom and reveals:<br /><ul><li>Why distraction at work is a symptom of a dysfunctional company culture--and how to fix it</li><br /><li>What really drives human behavior and why "time management is pain management"</li><br /><li>Why your relationships (and your sex life) depend on you becoming indistractable</li><br /><li>How to raise indistractable children in an increasingly distracting world</li></ul>Empowering and optimistic, <i>Indistractable </i>provides practical, novel techniques to control your time and attention--helping you live the life you really want.

<b>An insightful and funny look at some of the impossible questions Alan Alda has asked himself over the years: What do I value? What, exactly, is the good life? (And what does that even mean?)</b><br /><br /> Picking up where his bestselling memoir left off鈥揾aving been saved by emergency surgery after nearly dying on a mountaintop in Chile鈥揂lda finds himself not only glad to be alive but searching for a way to squeeze the most juice out of his new life. Looking for a sense of meaning that would make this extra time count, he listens in on things he鈥檚 heard himself saying in private and in public at critical points in his life鈥揻rom the turbulence of the sixties, to his first Broadway show, to the birth of his children, to the ache of September 11, and beyond. Reflecting on the transitions in his life and in all our lives, he notices that 鈥渄oorways are where the truth is told,鈥?and wonders if there鈥檚 one thing鈥揳rt, activism, family, money, fame鈥搕hat could lead to a 鈥渓ife of meaning.鈥?lt;br /><br /> In a book that is candid, wise, and as questioning as it is incisive, Alda amuses and moves us with his unique and hilarious meditations on questions great and small. <i>Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself </i>is another superb Alan Alda performance, as inspiring and entertaining as the man himself.<br /><br /> <b>Praise for聽<i>Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself</i></b><br /><br />鈥淓ngagingly thoughtful and thought-provoking . . . [Alan Alda] candidly shares many stories of his life, so easily and wittily you can hear him speak as you read.鈥?lt;br />鈥?lt;i>Sydney Sun Herald</i><br /><br />鈥淎lda is chatty, easygoing and humble, rather like a Mr. Rogers for grownups. His words of inspiration would be a perfect gift for a college grad or for anyone facing major life changes.鈥?lt;br />鈥?lt;i>Publishers Weekly聽</i>(starred review)<br /><br />鈥淪mart, engaged, funny and observant.鈥?lt;br />鈥?lt;i>San Antonio Express-News</i>

<b>The instant <i>New York Times </i>bestseller!<br /><br />From the author of <i>Expecting Better</i>, an economist's guide to the early years of parenting.<br /><br />鈥淢any parents will likely find reading it a huge relief from the scare stories that seem to pop up everywhere these days...<i>Cribsheet聽</i>is not another call for the end of helicopter parenting or snowplow parenting or whatever kind of parenting is lighting up social media today, and it鈥檚 not a call to overthrow medical wisdom; it鈥檚 a call for parenting with context, and it鈥檚 freeing.鈥?鈥?lt;i>聽The Washington Post聽</i></b><br /><br /> With <i>Expecting Better</i>, award-winning economist Emily Oster spotted a need in the pregnancy market for advice that gave women the information they needed to make the best decision for their own pregnancies. By digging into the data, Oster found that much of the conventional pregnancy wisdom was wrong. In <i>Cribsheet</i>, she now tackles an even greater challenge: decision-making in the early years of parenting.聽<br /><br /> As any new parent knows, there is an abundance of often-conflicting advice hurled at you from doctors, family, friends, and strangers on the internet. From the earliest days, parents get the message that they must make certain choices around feeding, sleep, and schedule or all will be lost. There's a rule鈥攐r three鈥攆or everything. But the benefits of these choices can be overstated, and the trade-offs can be profound. How do you make your own best decision?聽<br /><br /> Armed with the data, Oster finds that the conventional wisdom doesn't always hold up. She debunks myths around breastfeeding (not a panacea), sleep training (not so bad!), potty training (wait until they're ready or possibly bribe with M&Ms), language acquisition (early talkers aren't necessarily geniuses), and many other topics. She also shows parents how to think through freighted questions like if and how to go back to work, how to think about toddler discipline, and how to have a relationship and parent at the same time.聽<br /><br /> Economics is the science of decision-making, and <i>Cribsheet聽</i>is a thinking parent's guide to the chaos and frequent misinformation of the early years. Emily Oster is a trained expert鈥攁nd mom of two鈥攚ho can empower us to make better, less fraught decisions鈥攁nd stay sane in the years before preschool.
