Excellent analysis at what we let distract us.
Even though this was an easy book to absorb it left me with many profound insights as to the world around me. One of my favorite concepts is "beauty that beautifies" or finding beauty that isn't a spectacle but that helps us feel connected to all that is good and beautiful in God's creation. For example, taking in the breathtaking natural vistas or listening to wonderful music as opposed to watching spectacles that make us feel superior or ogling the train wreck.

Eye opener
Tony Reinke does a great job of opening our eyes to the distractions we let negatively impact our worship and service to God.

quit after track 5
Failed to capture my interest after 5 tracks. Even though read by the author, the narration is forced.
