內容簡介

歡迎光臨白噪音時代
131個小提案,在喧鬧中啟發創造力、找到靈感,更發現快樂!
 
  不需要另外一本心靈勵志小書來告訴我們,身處的這個世界有多麼的喧囂與訊息爆炸,將人們變成一邊忙著追逐新潮流,又一邊掙扎呼吸的矛盾生物,注意力朝向四面八方像天線一般展開,好像看見了許多,卻又往往沒有真正看見。
 
  一如作者在書中導言引用思想家蘇珊‧桑塔格Susan Sontag破題點到:「凝神關注Pay attention」之於人的重要性,注意力即是生命力,不讓要日常的枯燥窄化了你。注意力讓我們與人們產生連繫,也讓人保有好奇與渴望。
 
  然而「凝神關注Pay attention」不僅僅是保持專注力而已,它可以是一種學習與練習,透過一些方式變得更為精進。而在自我觀察我們注意力的流動之中,我們不光是發現了世界上的新奇、重要事物,更折射出自我的特色與想望,揭露我們真正關心的東西為何。帶給我們欣喜與方向。這正是這本可愛又有趣的小小書想陪我們一同開啟冒險的──
 
  全書提供131個注意力習題。難度分成一到四級,從任何人在任何時間都能立刻開始的入門款…來到最高等級,當注意已成為一項冒險挑戰!也依循不同主題(視覺、聽覺…其他感官)或場所(在博物館你可以嘗試些什麼?留意其他參觀者在做什麼?警衛在哪、穿著如何?…)、對象(與他人相處:試著去與人討論一下你覺得這屋子裡最奇怪的那個東西、自我獨處:在腦中作張清單,列出那些所有你想買而沒買的東西吧)等分為章節。有些簡易詼諧,也有些極其認真,要求你自我剖析──透過它們,你可以發現更多日子裡躲藏著的驚喜、更深刻地品嘗遭遇到的體驗,更讓生命裡精彩重要的人事物,顯現他們的輪廓。(文/博客來編譯)

Review
 
  "Attention is a precious resource, one we waste in stupid ways. And attention is a muscle, one we can easily develop. In this refreshingly practical book, Rob Walker gives us 131 ways to treasure and improve our ability to see." (Seth Godin, author of This is Marketing)
 
  "If you want a more interesting and creative life, the first thing to do is to start paying better attention to it. In The Art of Noticing, Rob Walker provides an essential guide to becoming an explorer of your everyday world. I found a ton to steal here and so will you." (Austin Kleon, New York Times bestselling author of Steal Like An Artist)
 
  "In the tradition of John Berger, Susan Sontag, and George Nelson, Rob Walker offers a guide not to looking but to seeing – and why the difference is crucial. At once passionate and charming, he makes the case that noticing what’s there is the first step in creating what’s new." (Michael Bierut, cofounder of Design Observer and author of Now You See It and Other Essays on Design)
  
  "The Art Of Noticing is a book about reading, verbal and non-verbal reading, which is how we increasingly read now, and how we have always read. Walker encourages us to make a non-literal reading of our world, which can mean non-judgmental and more enlightened." (Leanne Shapton, author of Guestbook)
 
  "Rob Walker's writing has always been wonderful because of his unique eye for noticing what other people miss. With this new book, he's basically teaching you all his secrets for seeing." (Ryan Holiday, bestselling author of Ego is the Enemy and The Obstacle Is The Way)
