‘This book can catapult you into living fully the life that is yours to live while you have the chance’ Jon Kabat-Zinn

‘A must-read for our distracted times’ Dan Goleman


‘A must-have guide to experiencing every moment of our lives’ Goldie Hawn

‘A treasure trove of insights and exercises to enrich our lives’ Dan Siegel

Stop for a moment. Are you here right now?

Is your focus on the words in front of you? Or is it roaming elsewhere, to the past or future, to a worry, to your to-do list, or to your phone?

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.

Acclaimed neuroscientist Dr Amishi Jha has dedicated her life’s work to understanding the science of attention at every level – from brain imaging studies in the lab to field testing soldiers, firefighters and athletes. Her mission has been to scientifically determine how we can harness the full power of our attention to better meet all that life demands. In Peak Mind, Dr Jha expertly guides readers through fascinating research, debunking common assumptions about focus and attention, and offers remarkably easy-to-adapt flexible twelve minute-a-day exercises to lift the mental fog, declutter the mind, and strengthen focus so that you can experience more of your life.

Amishi Jha is an associate professor of psychology at the University of Miami, where she serves as the Director of Contemplative Neuroscience for the Mindfulness Research and Practice Initiative, which she co-founded in 2010. She received her PhD from the University of California-Davis, and received her postdoctoral training at the Brain Imaging and Analysis Center at Duke University in functional neuroimaging. The research in her laboratory, The Jha Lab, is dedicated to studying the neural bases of attention and the effects of mindfulness-based training programs on cognition, emotion and resilience. She has been systematically investigating the potential applications of mindfulness training in education, corporate, elite sports, and military contexts. In addition to her own published body of research, her work has been featured at TED.com, the World Economic Forum, NYTimes, NPR, Time, Newsweek, the Aspen Institute, the Pentagon, the Journal of Special Operations Medicine, and Joint Force Quarterly. Her pioneering work on mindfulness and attention is currently in use broadly, from organizations like the US military and New Zealand Defense Force, to professional sports teams, medical schools, and businesses.
