    The pursuit of attention is now emerging as one of the electric organizing principles of American life. Not only are people pursuing attention in new ways, but there is evidence that we have begun to restructure our culture – including even our politics and economy – around the idea of attention as a glittering ultimate recognition and reward. It’s hard to offer your unique gifts when you are overworked, overtired, and overwhelmed. Attention is now the most valuable commodity. This book provides the tools and strategies to regain control of your life and work. You can do more of the things that matter most to you.

    In The Pursuit of Attention, Derber contends that it is a general lack of social support in America that causes people to compete so hungrily, and he shows how individuals will often employ numerous techniques to turn the course of aconversation towards themselves. The book illustrates and explains this "conversational narcissism" in sample. Get this from a library! The pursuit of attention: power and individualism in everyday life. [Charles Derber].

    Additional Physical Format: Online version: Derber, Charles. Pursuit of attention. Oxford ; New York: Oxford University Press, , © (OCoLC)   The book I read was The Pursuit of Happyness, I have seen the movie and I know that the book is usually always better than the movie so I am excited to read further into the book. It has sadness, happiness, faith and even funny parts. This novel is an easier book, but has a mature meaning behind it. The book was published in by Chris Gardner/5.
