Attention is a most precious gift. It brings meaning, connection and happiness to our lives. Studies suggest attention spans are declining, distraction is growing, and we’re more concerned than ever about losing the ability to perform the simple but crucial act of paying attention. It’s one of the greatest concerns for current and future generations. When you harness the power of attention, life changes in surprising ways: relationships deepen, experiences become more meaningful and things unfold with greater harmony. Your attention is fragile and, by taking care of it in a few simple ways, it will reward you with the vibrancy of a full life. If you want to be more present, live more fully and experience the magic of life … take one moment, please.

Your greatest potential is unleashed when you slow down. Do Less. Be More reveals the science that explains why doing less is a bonafide strategy for achieving what you really want. Learn how to ban busy and focus on what really matters with 21 practical ways to say no and embrace silence, space and solitude. While cramming in one more task may feel useful, productive, or even satisfying, it’s not always the best use of a spare moment. In fact, it will inevitably lead us to a place where we become less productive, less creative, less inspired and less satisfied with life. The latest brain-function research shows that merely thinking of an activity, rather than actually doing it, sees the brain in active mode. While we might think we don’t have any space in our lives to do more of what is important to us, Do Less. Be More offers readers 21 activities to reclaim even the tiniest moments, like waiting for a coffee, to rest their brains and in so doing, rediscover insight, inspiration and fresh ideas. Learn how to ban busy and focus on what really matters with 21 practical ways to say no and embrace silence, space and solitude.

Putting Mankind First is a humorous novel, which sees an impending alien invasion being fought by a management committee. When an alien fleet is detected approaching the Earth, the world’s governments must decide what to do about it. In the UK, the Prime Minister convenes a meeting of COBRA, which writes a report titled ‘Putting Mankind First’. “There is an alien fleet somewhere out there which may, or may not, be intent on destroying the world.” As the fleet enters our solar system, the country’s greatest brains discuss the Earth’s response. What should be done? Who should do it? And what colour paper should the report be on? Meanwhile, the aliens have their own agenda and intentions which – if mankind only knew them – would cause even greater panic on Earth. As the alien fleet gets ever closer, it becomes clear that the danger is so great that even COBRA’s neatly-typed paperwork may not be enough to save the Earth... A tall, dark stranger, a plucky young heroine, an adorable basset hound, a peculiar cat and a myriad of historical and alien characters come together in this biting satire on modern management practices that starts in the Home Counties, but spans thousands of centuries and millions of miles.

Can I Have Your Attention? is not your traditional self-help book that offers 12 simple steps to enhance brainpower. Nor is it a book on Eastern Wisdom, spirituality, or conventional meditation. It is an eye-popping adventure that combines ancient, high-speed attention-building processes with cutting-edge attention research in psychology, neurology, and biology. Through Joseph Cardillo’s engaging personal account of the world of human attention—which synthesizes the stories of more than two dozen experts—you will uncover surprising secrets about the workings of your own mind. Did you know that: — You can use your attention to perfect any daily activity—from piano playing to work- related activities to perfecting your golf swing? — In just one-six-hundredth of a second, a random detail you glimpse in the corner of your eye can determine whether you like someone you just met, cause or avoid an accident, make you feel happy or depressed all day, and lead you to succeed or fail at anything you try? — Specifically designed meditation techniques can be used to scan and shift brain waves, altering one’s attention as effectively as electrode-packed biofeedback instruments? — Most importantly, you can train your attention to turn such processes on or off on command? This fresh look at ancient attention skills and new science will transform your thinking about what human attention is as well as offer a guide to incorporating its insights into your daily life. Can I Have Your Attention? even presents a redefinition of attention deficit and reveals a variety of natural, non-medical tools that can significantly amp up anyone’s attention!
