Summary, etc.: Too many of us have become addicted to the popular, enticing, dangerously misleading drug of multitasking. Devora Zack was once hooked herself. But she beat it and became more efficient, and you can too. Zack marshals convincing neuroscientific evidence to prove that you really can't do more by trying to tackle several things at once-it's an illusion. There is a better way to deal with all the information and interruptions that bombard us today. Singletasking explains exactly how to clear and calm your mind, arrange your schedule and environment, and gently.

According to Zack (Networking for People Who Hate Networking), the prevalent regard for multitasking is misguided. It is actually ineffective, stressful, and neurologically impossible. She posits that doing one thing at a time offers the chance for a flow of ideas, respects people who are physically present, and enables one to get more accomplished. Zack shows readers how they can manage the expectations of others, unplug from technology (at times), and operate in the moment. VERDICT While there are way too many charts and fill-in-the-blank pages, the message and suggestions are sound. Even applying a few of the tips would lead to less stress and greater productivity. © Copyright 2015. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
