dc.description.abstractThe Attention Wars is a story about how we misunderstand attention and what's actually affecting our ability to focus. Throughout the book, I debunk the belief that our attention is dwindling and show examples from gaming and television that shows how we have an amazing capacity to focus for long periods of time. I then show that the landscape for the expectations of our attention has shifted from a finite expectation to an infinite perspective; whereby, our attention is expected to always be turned on and the products we interact with support this notion of infinite attentional dedication.en_US
