    Excellent book about your brain and how you can be productive as a brainworker. ...

    Ik heb heel erg genoten van dit boek. Voor sommige mensen zullen de hoofdstukken over neurologie er iets over zijn, wie wil kan ze dan ook overslaan. Compernolle waarschuwt keer op keer dat ons brein maar n ding tegelijk aan kan en dat we het onszelf soms bijzonder moeilijk maken...

    interessant boek, wel veel herhalingen. sociale media en internet verpesten je aandacht. ...

    Got bored of this within a third of the book and gave up. He has an interesting message, but it's very poorly communicated. Oh for well-written non-fiction books...! ...

    The problem of people nowadays is we always want to be connected (on line), we do multitask, we bear too much negative stress, and we lack of sleep. These 4 factors has caused us to be unable to focus, and of course we got very bad results in performance professionally. So the author...

    Good advice and interesting examples, but way to repetitive. The book could easily be 20% shorter just by not explaining the same thing over an over (and then it could probably benefit from some tighter editing on top of that). Personally I didn't find too many new ideas in there, but...

    This is a very good book, similar in perspective to Cal Newport?s Deep Work but containing much more depth and references to the science behind the theory. I?ve rated it at only 4 stars as it does get a bit repetitive and is overly preaching in places. I found myself skipping t...

    This was INCREDIBLE. Everyone with a brain should read it. More detailed thoughts to follow. ...

    It's an interesting read about how to improve productivity but it could've been a lot shorter. There's a ton of boring and repeating fluff. ...

    Interessant boek, maar te veel herhalingen. ...

    What a great book. Chockful of scientific evidence on how bad we are at working in a world were we have constant online access, are addicted to our smartphone and email alerts and create inferior working environments (an open office is the devil). This book was an eye-opener supreme. ...

    I agree with the main point of the book and the author does an excellent job supporting it. We are controlled by our devices rather than controlling then to maximize our happiness. we should take the time to minimize interruptions, disconnect, and spend time really focusing on the prob...

    Started reading this on the toilet, which was ironic because it's emblematic of this drive to be "productive", even in our free time (even on the toilet), while actually it is counter-productive. Then I read how these small breaks are the times when my brain is archiving all that I've ...

    Een uitstekend en confronterend boek. In het eerste deel krijg je een indrukwekkend verhelderend inzicht in het functioneren van de drie verschillende delen van je brein. Vooral de manier waarop je er mee kan (of beter moet) mee omgaan is bijzonder leerrijk. Dit boek heeft mijn gedra...

    Excellent book on productivity.If you have read David Allen's Getting Things Done this book will be beneficial to comprehend the whole system and why we do what we do. Theo Compernolle's work is based on scientific research and backs up his arguments in style.If there is one thing you...

    highly recommended to anyone who wants to know more about how the brain works. definitely had a few tips that made me work more efficiently ...

    Excellent book about your brain and how you can be productive as a brainworker. ...

    Ik heb heel erg genoten van dit boek. Voor sommige mensen zullen de hoofdstukken over neurologie er iets over zijn, wie wil kan ze dan ook overslaan. Compernolle waarschuwt keer op keer dat ons brein maar n ding tegelijk aan kan en dat we het onszelf soms bijzonder moeilijk maken...

    interessant boek, wel veel herhalingen. sociale media en internet verpesten je aandacht. ...

    Got bored of this within a third of the book and gave up. He has an interesting message, but it's very poorly communicated. Oh for well-written non-fiction books...! ...

    The problem of people nowadays is we always want to be connected (on line), we do multitask, we bear too much negative stress, and we lack of sleep. These 4 factors has caused us to be unable to focus, and of course we got very bad results in performance professionally. So the author...

    Good advice and interesting examples, but way to repetitive. The book could easily be 20% shorter just by not explaining the same thing over an over (and then it could probably benefit from some tighter editing on top of that). Personally I didn't find too many new ideas in there, but...

    This is a very good book, similar in perspective to Cal Newport?s Deep Work but containing much more depth and references to the science behind the theory. I?ve rated it at only 4 stars as it does get a bit repetitive and is overly preaching in places. I found myself skipping t...

    This was INCREDIBLE. Everyone with a brain should read it. More detailed thoughts to follow. ...

    It's an interesting read about how to improve productivity but it could've been a lot shorter. There's a ton of boring and repeating fluff. ...

    What a great book. Chockful of scientific evidence on how bad we are at working in a world were we have constant online access, are addicted to our smartphone and email alerts and create inferior working environments (an open office is the devil). This book was an eye-opener supreme. ...
