Publisher's Summary

Stop for a Moment.

Are you here right now?

Is your focus on this page? Or is it roaming elsewhere, to the past or future, to a worry, to your to-do list, or to your phone?

Whether you’re simply browsing, talking to friends, or trying to stay focused in an important meeting, you can’t seem to manage to hang on to your attention. No matter how hard you try, you’re somewhere else. The consequence is that you miss out on 50 percent of your life - including the most important moments.

The good news: There’s nothing wrong with you - your brain isn’t broken. The human brain was built to be distractible.

The even better news: You can train your brain to pay attention more effectively.

Stay with me a little longer and soon you will be able to: 

  • Focus without all the struggle.
  • Take back your attention from the pull of distraction.
  • And function at your peak, for all that truly matters in your life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Accompanying PDF is found in the audible app

I first heard about Dr. Amishi Jha on a Ted Talk 4 years ago and thought her work was very interesting. I heard about this book after watching her interview on JRE. I’m still listening to the book and will update my review after I finish it.

For those looking for the accompanying PDF online, no need to search any further, I found it under the triple dot menu in the audible app while listening to the book.

The Most Practical Mindfulness Instructional

This is the most practical instruction in mindfulness I've ever read or listened to. It just clicks. It's hard to know how much time is necessary with most teachers simply giving you the vague "more is better" approach. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in how and WHY you should incorporate a mindfulness practice. Even a short 12 min per day is all you need and anyone can do that. I'll have to listen to this a couple more times as throughout I was reminded how little I was actually paying true attention as I was continuously made aware of how much the attention wanders, haha. I wish Amishi would have taken the time to read this herself but Xe Sands is an excellent narrator and is very engaged with the material. Go get it now and get a grip on that attention of yours!

A manual on mental enhancement

I have read over a 1000 books, studies, and article’s on personal performance and success related topics. Peak Mind by Amish P. Jha, ranks up on top as a advance evidence based contribution to the field. If you’re looking for a way to get the most out of your brain, study this book.

Brilliant & Mindful

Narrator and writer was brilliant, kind, and very mindful...no pun intended. I literally could not focus long enough to learn to focus. Would definitely recommend for others.

slow and boring

when I watched her interview on Joe Rogan she was so passionate, it was easy to be intrigued with her study. This book has a lot of back story and does not hold my attention at all. instead it is somehow making me angry. which is saying something because I'm usually extremely mellow. I read many books and hardly ever leave reviews, especially unfavorable ones.

Very enlightening with helpful exercises, thanks!

This work is pure genius. I'm really glad I found out about this book from listening to a Joe Rogan podcast episode with Amishi which got me interested in learning more. I think it’s helpful for addressing the root issues for difficulties and lack of true growth with meditation, focus, awareness, and overall mental well-being.

A lot of works will hype up and convince people of methods for self-improvement but lack the actual research to back it up in the real world with regards to all people consistently. This is not one of them as it actually delves into all of the legitimate research done and evidence for the improvements one can expect to gain from the knowledge in this book.

The author successfully reintroduces, improves upon, and proves the effectiveness of ancient holistic practices combined with; and in addition to, those of the modern age and new ones invented by the author for not just improving one’s mind but also for living a better, more enlightened life.

Less story time and more personal technique training

The book has good intentions to create mindful thinking techniques, but as a listener, you can get easily distracted by the long stories provided by the author, Amishi P. Jha.

This book can easily be cut in half if a large majority of these army training stories were either shortened or completely eliminated.

Expected more from this book in terms of mindful techniques but may appeal to some audiences more than others.
