How do we turn off the noise of daily life, turn on our brains, and begin to engage in that fundamental human activity known as thinking again? In twelve short chapters, the author gives readers a remedy for the Age of Distraction, an age fuelled by social networking overload, compulsive texting and an omnipresent stream of mobile calls.

Notă biografică

P.M. FORNI is a professor at Johns Hopkins University. He is author of" Choosing Civility "and "The Civility Solution." His work has been featured in "The New York Times" and "The""Washington Post." He has appeared on NPR and "Oprah." He lives in Baltimore, Maryland.


"Insightful meditation on how changing the way we think can improve our daily lives. ... A deft exploration that urges us to think before speaking."--"Kirkus", Starred Review
"Being highly educated and extraordinarily decorated does not necessarily translate into good thinking. But if a Nobel Prize were awarded for gracious self-control, Professor Forni would be the proper judge. As with "Choosing Civility" and "The Civility Solution"", The Thinking Life"serves well to refine even the most intransigent of us. Having just finished the book, I growled at my college-age daughter when she announced that her friends would visit our home late this evening. Then it immediately dawned on me that I was guilty of disobeying Professor Forni's thoughtful guidelines. Fortunately my heartfelt apology was accepted. And for penance, I promise to think first next time."-- Peter Agre, 2003 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
""The Thinking Life" is as the most provocative and useful book I've read in years. As I traveled through it, Professor Forni gave me ideas about how to become more thoughtful, made me feel guilty, annoyed me with his grumpiness, and inspired me with his wit and optimism. You probably won't agree with everything in this book, but that is part of its brilliance: Forni's compels you to live "The Thinking Life" as you devour his little gem."-- Robert Sutton, Stanford Professor and author of New York Times bestsellers "Good Boss, Bad Boss" and "The No Asshole Rule"
"I am always interested in what Dr. Forni has to say about becoming more civil, and this book talks about how much harder it is when we're constantly on our cell phones, blackberries, Twitter and Facebook. And don't forget the iPad! Dr. Forni says serious thinking leads to the good life...and I am listening with both ears."-- Gayle King
An eloquent introduction on how to lead a more conscientious, thoughtful life." --Ben Casnocha, author, "My Start-Up Life"
