Product description

From the Back Cover

"A practical and useful guide to what are perhaps the most fundamental skills for success in our era of unlimited information. Ross Dawson has written a how-to for turning a surplus of information into expertise, insight, and better decisions."
—Nir Eyal, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Hooked and Indistractable

"If you read only one business book this year, make it
Thriving on Overload. Finally, a book that provides actionable strategies to cut through the masses of information and find the diamonds that will make a difference."
—Nick Abrahams, Global Co-leader of Digital Transformation at Norton Rose Fulbright 

"Dawson's Five Powers in
Thriving on Overload are just the tools we need to navigate the fast-evolving world we live in. If you’ve ever wondered where to start to prioritize your life, you must buy this book!"
—Joyce Gioia, CEO of The Herman Group of Companies and author of Experience Rules

"What got us here won’t get us there. Ross has always been the first to the future, and now he gives us the maps we need to navigate our new world. A must-read for leaders of today and tomorrow."
—Mark Bonchek, Founder and Chief Epiphany Officer of Shift Thinking

"In a world of increasing distraction, turning information to insight is a superpower. Dawson, a prolific thinker himself, brings the tools of his trade together in this timely and important book for managers and executives looking to make sense of the ever-increasing information deluge. Moving deftly between overall frameworking and tactical application, Dawson delivers a field guide for anyone looking to thrive in an age where most are overwhelmed."
—Sangeet Paul Choudary, Founder of Platformation Labs and coauthor of Platform Revolution

"Ross Dawson's book brilliantly summarizes the precarious situation in which we humans find ourselves, as the data tsunami threatens to drown us. We need a plan to manage it—and its power—for human benefit. And that’s exactly what this smart book offers, acknowledging but moving on from the usual litany of complaints and offering a practical model of transformational understanding far different from the forgettable how-to manuals that drive so much business publishing. This well-built volume is thoroughly wise, ever practical, and a remarkably timely guide as we peer ahead up the curve. I once ran a think tank in Washington with the strapline 'Asking tomorrow's questions' because if you get the questions right, the answers flow. That's exactly what
Thriving on Overload does. It may save your life."
—Nigel Cameron, President Emeritus of the Center for Policy on Emerging Technologies

"On the path to wisdom, purpose, and meaning, what can be more important than finding a way to hack your own cognitive stack? In his new book Thriving on Overload, Ross Dawson provides a comprehensive set of principles, mental models, and anecdotes to guide even the most voracious infovores on their journey to make sense of the world."
—Mike Walsh, CEO of Tomorrow and author of The Algorithmic Leader

"A great refactoring is among us. Digital natives are competing with legacy analogs in almost every aspect of our lives. How we harness both the plethora and power of information will determine the winners and losers in this dynamic economy. This must-read book shares the pragmatic secrets of how to overcome being overwhelmed and how to turn information into an unfair advantage."
—R "Ray" Wang, Founder, Chairman, and Principal Analyst of Constellation Research and author of Everybody Rules the World and Disrupting Digital Business

Thriving on Overload, I didn't realize how many of these things I have been doing in my professional and personal life already, and also how many great apps and technology tools I wasn't using yet! Ross's book is an amazing compendium that can help even the most organized and fastidious person to improve their thinking and processes."
—Justin Baird, Chief Technology Officer APAC at Microsoft

"In a world where information can be debilitating, deceiving, or confusing, it's easy and even inevitable to miss what will help you learn, grow, and thrive. And sometimes it's not even about signal-to-noise ratios becoming overwhelming. It's signal-to-signal ratios where there is so much great content available. In this book, Ross will help you not only find the signal but also become part of it."
—Brian Solis, digital anthropologist, futurist, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The End of Business as Usual

Thriving on Overload is bursting with thoughtful strategies for optimizing your information intake."
—Leslie Shannon, Head of Ecosystem and Trend Scouting at Nokia

"In a world where we measure content in Zettabytes, finding the secret to navigating the right mix of skills, structure, and vision to thrive seems elusive at best, but not for Dawson. He gives us a road map not only for the present but for the future that is eminently achievable."
—Brett King, author of Augmented and The Rise of Technosocialism

"We exist in a world in which many of us feel barraged with information.
Thriving on Overload provides a thoughtful and invaluable structure that allows one to distill and make sense of this river of data. It is a great read."
—Stephen Poor, Chair Emeritus of Seyfarth & Shaw

"Ross Dawson's
Thriving on Overload will teach you how to maximize ROI on the scarcest resource in the universe: your attention."
—Robert Tercek, Cofounder of The Futurists and author of Vaporized

"Mind management is a core skill to manage stress and anxiety in an era where our mental health is increasingly at risk. This skill is essential not only for your own success but also for those whom you parent, coach, and lead. By reframing one’s mindset and relationship with the information avalanche from overload to abundance and integrating the five superpowers laid out so clearly, one can transform obligation to choice, stress to joy, floundering to skilled, and ultimately drowning to thriving."
—Annalie Killian, VP of Strategic Partnerships at sparks & honey

"Ross Dawson presents an important book for everyone that is actively looking at the future. Digital overload is a huge challenge as the sheer volume of information and content is exponentially growing, and Ross has some great pointers on dealing with it. Staying digitally well is crucial for future success. Read this book!"
—Gerd Leonhard, CEO of The Futures Agency and author of Technology vs. Humanity

"All of us have to process far too much information every day. It's worth spending an hour reading this insightful book, to reap a lifetime's worth of more efficiently handling the information deluge."
—David Teten, Founder of Versatile VC

"The ability to better mould one's thinking is the most powerful tool in a time of information overload, and this is an excellent road map to achieve exactly that reorientation!"
—Rohit Krishnan, Director of Unbound and Founder of Strange Loop Canon
