    The former editor of Mashable and cofounder of DominateFund examines the psychological phenomena that captivate our attention-and how we can leverage them to draw and retain attention for our ideas, work, companies, and more. 
    Whether you're an artist or a salesperson, a teacher or an engineer, a marketer or a parent-putting the spotlight on your ideas, insights, projects and products requires a deep understanding of the science of attention. In Captivology, award-winning journalist and entrepreneur Ben Parr explains how and why the mind pays attention to some events or people-and not others-and presents seven captivation triggers-techniques guaranteed to help you capture and retain the attention of friends, colleagues, customers, fans, and even strangers. 
    Parr combines the latest research on attention with interviews with more than fifty scientists and visionaries-Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg, film director Steven Soderbergh, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner, magician Jon Armstrong, New York Times bestselling author Susan Cain, Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto, founder of Reddit Alexis Ohanian, and more-who have successfully brought their ideas, projects, companies, and products to the forefront of cultural consciousness. The result is an insightful and practical book that will change how you assign jobs to your kids or staff, craft a multi-million dollar ad campaign, deliver your next presentation, attract users to your product, or convince the world to support your cause.

    Mika Brzezinski, Morning Joe co-host and New York Times best-selling author of Knowing Your Value, has built a career on inspiring women to assess and then obtain their true value in the workplace. In her books and in her conferences, Mika gives women the tools necessary to advocate for themselves and their financial futures. But that is only the first step; once you know your value, you need to grow it—both professionally and personally. Drawing on deeply revealing conversations with powerful and dynamic women, input from researchers and relationship experts, and her own wealth of experience, Mika helps women pinpoint their individual definition of success. She advises her readers to define the "professional value" that encompasses their worth in the workplace, and the "inner value" made up of their core beliefs and goals. Women can stop feeling overwhelmed, overscheduled, frantic, and forever guilty—but only if they choose their objectives confidently and unapologetically, and focus their efforts accordingly. Mika encourages women to stop seeking the unobtainable "work-life balance," and instead pursue a life of honesty and authenticity, where career and home life combine rather than collide.

    As part of a way of redefining how people undertake, this book is written with the whole purpose that the reader can understand some of the fundamental notions about the economy and entrepreneurship. 
    Positivism is a powerful tool, adversities can hit hard, but knowing how to face them are the key to success in a nutshell. 
    Creativity will also play a very important role in achieving "successful entrepreneurship". When you make a first approach to the subject of entrepreneurship, you get the impression that it is a very recent and current phenomenon, a phenomenon of the 21st century, but in reality entrepreneurship has existed throughout the history of humanity. In fact, the fact that today we can enjoy comforts as a result of technological development or inventions is due to the fact that at a certain moment the invention was transformed into a marketable product through the entrepreneurial activity of a person who saw that, from his product, a profit was born. 
    So we can say that the foundations of entrepreneurship are more than grounded, it is not a new "fashion" typical of the 2000s, history has been in charge of shaping it, which allowed all the concepts and ideas covered by entrepreneurship to be well reflected and that they can be considered fixed concepts that will be invariant over the years. 
    It cannot be said that capturing all these concepts in this work has been a titanic task, however, behind the scenes there was a whole process, from research to writing, this work promises, among other things, to clarify what entrepreneurship is from a new point of view, the questions, which will develop in the reader a new perception of ideas.

    Why is it that some individuals can shine in any sphere they choose to give themselves to, while others just cannot manage even a glimmer of success despite their definite talents? It seems unfair, really.   
    In truth, research shows us that it's actually the way that individuals think about their potential and skills that really counts most. In fact, historically speaking, many of those who have achieved real greatness have worked extremely hard to get to their end goals.  
    It's also true that many were told they would never amount to anything at all by friends, colleagues, family, and/or peers. The difference was they believed they could achieve their goals and worked extremely diligently to do so. Walt Disney, who created Disneyland in the US, is a prime example of an individual who never gave up on his dreams. His belief in himself (and others) was profound and inspirational, to say the least.   
    Of course, we'd all like to know the "magical" secret to success, but the reality is there are actually so many different factors that must be taken into account to what makes one a truly successful human being. It's definitely true that hard work and dedication are so important in reaching success, but there's more to success than just plugging away, day after day. Maintaining a focus-driven mindset is pivotal and can be the difference between success and failure, especially in the long term.
