About The Webinar

Part of the experience of being alive in the twenty-first century is the feeling that your
attention span is collapsing, along with those of everyone around you – including your
children. Why have we lost our ability to focus? What are the causes? And – most importantly – how do we get it back?

In Stolen Focus, New York Times bestselling author Johann Hari sets out on a global
investigative journey into our shortening attention spans. He tells us what he learned
from spending three months off the internet, reveals the inside story of the war to grab
our attention that is waged every day, and explores why those prescribing mood
stimulants to 10% of children in schools are getting it so wrong.

Drawing on more than two hundred interviews with the world's leading experts on
attention problems, Stolen Focus moves beyond individual solutions towards a
collective understanding of a problem facing us all. Only by first solving the attention
crisis, Hari argues, can we turn to fixing the issues we care about most – and sustain
the attention to build a better society.

Join Daily Maverick’s Rebecca Davis and international bestselling author Johann Hari examine his latest narrative response to the attention crisis in modern society.
