Product description


Proven practices to take control of our focus and become our best selves. A must read for our distracted times - Daniel Goleman, author of #1 NYTimes Bestseller Emotional Intelligence

Thriving starts with our attention and what we do with it. In Peak Mind, Amishi Jha combines the science of attention with compelling stories from those in high stakes professions to show us all how to be more present in our lives so that we can unlock our full potential - Arianna Huffington, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Thrive

Dr. Jha brilliantly blends cutting-edge science, compelling stories, and strong practical instructions--the perfect antidote for our distracted over-busy times - Jack Kornfield, bestselling author of The Wise Heart

For a while now I've thought of experiences we long for, like love and connection, as emergent properties of how we pay attention. Attention is the key factor in moving beyond just living mechanically into a life of clarity and joy. Dr. Jha brilliantly shows us how that can be so, offering a clear and useful path to paying attention differently - Sharon Salzberg, author of New York Times Bestseller, Real Happiness

Peak Mind delivers crucial insights about the human mind along with practical, accessible tools to enhance it. With clarity and skill, Amishi Jha brings you into the lab to learn how attention works, why it's essential for well-being, and how it can be trained to reach your greatest potential. Required reading for our modern world! - Wendy Hasenkamp, PhD, Science Director, Mind & Life Institute

In Peak Mind, Amishi Jha offers a brilliant guide for training our attention with mindful awareness and maximizing our human potential. You will learn the science behind mindfulness, and well-researched strategies that promote resilience against stress, and increased mental focus, creativity, clarity and strength. The true gift is the capacity to be fully here-present and engaged in your relationships and your life - Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Book Description

An acclaimed neuroscientist takes us on an eye-opening tour of the attention system -- the hidden superpower that enables us to function at maximum mental capacity to achieve more, maintain healthier relationships, and be present and engaged, no matter how anxious or stressed our lives. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
