The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload

Daniel J. Levitin

A professor of neuroscience and author of the best-selling This is Your Brain on Music, Levitin now offers advice about our brain on overload. Some people never need a calendar and won't miss a single appointment while some of us can't remember where our keys are 10 minutes after coming in the house. How we compartmentalize and organize information is critical, especially now that everyday brings more distractions. Once you understand how the brain processes what reaches it, you can learn to focus attention on what matters, recognize what might be important later, and zero in on details that lead to good decision-making.

Painted Horses

Malcolm Brooks

Brooks captures the grandeur of the American West in his evocative debut. In the mid-1950's, young archaeologist Catherine Lemay heads to Montana with a huge task before her. Working ahead of a major dam project, she has one summer to prove nothing of historical value will be lost before the canyon is flooded. When she arrives, she meets John H., a former mustanger and veteran of the U.S. Army's last mounted cavalry campaign. Living a fugitive life in the canyon, he inspires Catherine to see beauty in the stark landscape, and her heart opens to more than the vanished past. A sweeping romantic saga.
