Our attention has never been as overwhelmed or in demand as it is today; we've never been so busy while accomplishing so little, and we've grown uncomfortable with boredom and a lack of stimulation and distraction. In Hyperfocus, Chris Bailey - described by TED.com as 'the most productive man you could ever hope to meet' - provides profound insights into how we can best manage our attention. He reveals how the brain switches between two mental modes - hyperfocus, our deep concentration mode, and scatterfocus, our creative, reflective mode - and how the surest path to being our most creative and efficient selves at work is to combine them both.
Last two chapters summarize it very well.

Ironically, not attracting my attention
The content is not packed right for an audiobook it seems. I start losing interest after listening to some part of the section and drift away because there is too much time given to sections that can instead have interesting use-cases, so as the author mentioned initially in the book 'that one should decide if this book is worth your time' I am going to let it go.

When The Sandman, also known as Lord Morpheus - the immortal king of dreams, stories and the imagination - is pulled from his realm and imprisoned on Earth by a nefarious cult, he languishes for decades before finally escaping. Once free, he must retrieve the three “tools” that will restore his power and help him to rebuild his dominion, which has deteriorated in his absence.
Amazing Dramatisation. Incredible Voice Acting.

A folk tale for the future generations
I have read Sandman so many times that I was definitely not expecting to be as surprised and curious as I was when I read it for the first time. Everyone has done an awesome job and it should be considered a stepping stone for Audible to be Netflix alternate for books.
As for Sandman and the fact that it never gets old makes me feel that it might become a folk tale for the future generations
