<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • “[This] breezy page turner is essentially Bridget Jones goes to the White House.”—</b><i><b>The New York Times</b></i><br /><b> </b><br /><b>“Obama administration memoirs are rolling in, but in a refreshing twist <i>From the Corner of the Oval </i>swaps policy for good old-fashioned workplace drama.”<i>—Entertainment Weekly</i></b><br /><br /><b>Recommended for summer reading by </b><i><b>theSkimm</b></i><b> • Jane Green on NBC’s </b><i><b>Today</b></i><b> show • </b><i><b>Entertainment Weekly</b></i><b> • </b><i><b>Refinery29</b> </i><b>• </b><i><b>Bustle </b></i><b>• <i>PopSugar</i> </b><br /><br /> In 2012, Beck Dorey-Stein is working five part-time jobs and just scraping by when a posting on Craigslist lands her, improbably, in the Oval Office as one of Barack Obama’s stenographers. The ultimate D.C. outsider, she joins the elite team who accompany the president wherever he goes, recorder and mic in hand. On whirlwind trips across time zones, Beck forges friendships with a dynamic group of fellow travelers—young men and women who, like her, leave their real lives behind to hop aboard Air Force One in service of the president.<br /><br /> As she learns to navigate White House protocols and more than once runs afoul of the hierarchy, Beck becomes romantically entangled with a consummate D.C. insider, and suddenly the political becomes all too personal.<br /><br /> Against the backdrop of glamour, drama, and intrigue, this is the story of a young woman making unlikely friendships, getting her heart broken, learning what truly matters, and, in the process, discovering her voice.<br /><b><br />Praise for </b><i><b>From the Corner of the Oval</b></i><br /><br />“Who knew the West Wing could be so sexy? Beck Dorey-Stein’s unparalleled access is obvious on every page, along with her knife-sharp humor. I tore through the entire book on a four-hour flight and <i>loved</i> reading all about the brilliant yet hard-partying people who once surrounded the leader of the free world. Lots of books claim to give real insider glimpses, but this one actually delivers.”<b>—Lauren Weisberger, author of <i>The Devil Wears Prada</i></b><br /><br />“Dorey-Stein . . . writes with wit and self-deprecating humor.”<b>—<i>The Wall Street Journal</i></b><br /><br />“Addictively readable . . . Dorey-Stein’s spunk and her sparkling, crackling prose had me cheering for her through each adventure. . . . She never loses her starry-eyed optimism, her pinch-me wonderment, her <i>Working Girl </i>pluck.”<b>—Paul Begala, <i>The New York Times Book Review</i> (Editors’ Choice)</b>

<b>A practical guide to managing your attention--the most powerful resource you have to get stuff done, become more creative, and live a meaningful life</b><br /><br />Our attention has never been as overwhelmed as it is today. Many of us recognize that our brains struggle to multitask. Despite this, we feel compelled to do so anyway while we fill each moment of our lives to the brim with mindless distraction. <i>Hyperfocus</i> provides profound insights into how you can best take charge of your attention to achieve a greater sense of purpose and productivity throughout the day.<br /><br />The most recent neuroscientific research reveals that our brain has two powerful modes that can be unlocked when we use our attention effectively: a focused mode (hyperfocus), which is the foundation for being highly productive, and a creative mode (scatterfocus), which enables us to connect ideas in novel ways. <i>Hyperfocus</i> helps you access each of the two mental modes so you can concentrate more deeply, think more clearly, and work and live more deliberately every day. Chris Bailey examines such topics such as:<br /><br />  <b>*</b>  identifying and dealing with the four key types of distraction and interruption;<br />  <b>*</b>  establishing a clear physical and mental environment in which to work;<br />  <b>*</b>  controlling motivation and working fewer hours to become more productive;<br />  <b>*</b>  taking time-outs with intention;<br />  <b>*</b>  multitasking <i>strategically</i>; and<br />  <b>*</b>  learning when to pay attention and when to let your mind wander wherever it wants to.<br /><br />By transforming how you think about your attention,<i> Hyperfocus</i> reveals that the more effectively you learn to take charge of it, the better you'll be able to manage every aspect of your life.

It's a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time. Deep work will make you better at what you do and provide the sense of true fulfillment that comes from craftsmanship. In short, deep work is like a super power in our increasingly competitive twenty-first century economy. And yet, most people have lost the ability to go deep-spending their days instead in a frantic blur of e-mail and social media, not even realizing there's a better way.</div><div><br /></div><div>In DEEP WORK, author and professor Cal Newport flips the narrative on impact in a connected age. Instead of arguing distraction is bad, he instead celebrates the power of its opposite. Dividing this book into two parts, he first makes the case that in almost any profession, cultivating a deep work ethic will produce massive benefits. He then presents a rigorous training regimen, presented as a series of four "rules," for transforming your mind and habits to support this skill. </div><div><br /></div><div>A mix of cultural criticism and actionable advice, DEEP WORK takes the reader on a journey through memorable stories-from Carl Jung building a stone tower in the woods to focus his mind, to a social media pioneer buying a round-trip business class ticket to Tokyo to write a book free from distraction in the air-and no-nonsense advice, such as the claim that most serious professionals should quit social media and that you should practice being bored. DEEP WORK is an indispensable guide to anyone seeking focused success in a distracted world.</div></div>
