Review:

"A favorite coach of mine once said to me, 'You can have anything you want, you just can't have everything you want.' "Find Your Focus Zone" is a roadmap for eliminating the bombardment of daily distractions and focusing on the things that matter most to you, whether that be running a marathon, running a business, running a family, or just plain running your life."

-- Dean Karnazes, author of "Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner"

"Lucy Jo Palladino has done it again! This is a truly remarkable, insightful, and useful guide to optimizing both your life and your performance. Buy several copies, as you'll keep thinking of people you want to share it with while you're reading it!"

-- Thom Hartmann, author of "Attention Deficit Disorder: A Different Perception"

""Find Your Focus Zone" is a fun, entertaining, energetic, and great resource, jam-packed with simple, ready-to-use perspectives that help you understand more clearly the increasingly fast-paced world. Dr. Palladino's eight sets of cognitive strategies are surefire ways to focus your attention and perform at new high levels. It makes my top ten list of 'be sure to read'...and 'be sure to apply.'"

-- James Bauman, PhD, U.S. Olympic Committee Sport Psychologist

"With technology exploding, the single biggest productivity challenge workers face is the ability to focus on a single task long enough to see it through to completion. "Find Your Focus Zone" is a seminal work in the science of attention and a must-read for every distracted professional. Focus is power."

-- Laura Stack, MBA, CSP, "The Productivity Pro(R)," author of "Leave the Office Earlier" and "Find More Time"

"In this age of digital distractions we all need strategies and tools to help us choose where to place our attention and how to stay focused on the really important stuff that makes life meaningful. Dr. Lucy Jo Palladino's "Find Your Focus Zone" offers that help in a book that is both insightful and accessible. I highly recommend "Find Your Focus Zone." "

-- Neil Fiore, PhD, author of "Awaken Your Strongest Self" and "The Now Habit "

"Coaching people to optimize their brain's functioning is a new and much-needed field in our overloaded world. Civilization and our cyber world have clearly outstripped our brain's ability to deal with all that information, so we need all the help we can get. Lucy Jo gives practical tools to help all of us deal with the constant overloaded state in which we find ourselves immersed."

-- John Ratey, MD, author of "A User's Guide to the Brain" and co-author of "Driven to Distraction"
