No one can do it.  To show that it can, a subject has to be as good on the
two tasks when done together as they are when doing each separately.  Women
are not better at it than men, and both are bad.

Why?  Try listening to music, something a lot of people do when studying or
working, and not miss a measure while doing your work at the same level.
Can't be done.  Yeah, your brain can shut out the music, but even that
takes brain inhibitory power and you aren't actually doing both things.

Amazon has quite a few books on concentration, which you don't need.  It's
a matter of cutting the clutter out.  So turn off the TV, stereo, radio,
pull those plugs out of your iPods and ears and actually pay 100% attention
to what you are doing.  Or try listening to your music without doing
anything else.  You will hear things you never heard before.  You just
might surprise yourself at how much quality work you can do now..    bill w
