Book Club: Crazy Busy by Ned Hallowell.

October 22, 2010 at 2pm EDT - free to all.  

Do you feel overwhelmed coping with today's technology and busy life style?  Join us for an experiment in online book talks to discuss the book CrazyBusy: Overstretched, Overbooked, and About to Snap!

Read Dr. Edward Hallowell's book to learn more about gemmelsmerch "the ubiquitous force that distracts us from whatever we are doing", frazzing "multitasking ineffectively", and other issues we face in modern life.

CrazyBusy is available in many formats via online book stores including  - and in many libraries.  Read an excerpt at

PPS from Steve Gilbert:  We’re hoping to experiment with different schedules, media, tools for these online book discussions.  I’m especially interested in learning about new ways of annotating, highlighting, and sharing the results when we read.  I believe these options may provide new opportunities for learning more effectively from readings.
