Following House Thinking and Just the Way You Are, behavioral science writer Winifred Gallagher here makes the radical argument that much of the quality of your life depends not on fame or fortune, beauty or brains, fate or coincidence, but on what you choose to pay attention to. Rapt introduces a diverse cast of characters, from researchers to artists to ranchers, to illustrate the art of living the interested life.
"This wonderful and inspiring book asks readers to remember something so simple and yet so little appreciated—what you focus upon profoundly affects your quality of life.... It's a powerful and much needed prescription for these tumultuous times."—Sarah Susanka
