P.M. Forni is America's civility expert. In his first two books he taught readers the rules of civil behaviour and ways of responding to rudeness. In "The Thinking Life", he looks at the importance of thinking in our lives: how we do it, why we don't do enough of it and why we need to do more of it because, for Forni, serious thinking leads to the good life. In 12 short chapters, he gives readers a remedy for the Age of Distraction, an age fuelled by the internet, Blackberries, and mobile phones, all of which make constant demands on our attention, diverting it from one thing to another. After suggesting ways we can find time to think more, Forni shows readers how we can improve our abilities of: Attention; Reflection; Introspection; Self-control; Positive thinking; Proactive thinking; Effective decision-making strategies; Creative thinking; and, Problem-solving strategies.
