Matthew Crawford

Matthew B. Crawford is a philosopher, New York Times bestselling author, and mechanic. His latest book is The World Beyond Your Head: On Becoming an Individual in an Age of Distraction. In The World Beyond Your Head, Crawford investigates the challenge of mastering one’s own mind. We often complain about our fractured mental lives and feel beset by outside forces that destroy our focus and disrupt our peace of mind. Any defense against this, Crawford argues, requires that we reckon with the way attention sculpts the self. With implications for the way we raise our children, the design of public spaces, and democracy itself, this is a book of urgent relevance to contemporary life.
