Review

As a presence on the page, Newport is exceptional in the realm of self-help authors, New York Times Book Review

DEEP WORK accomplishes two considerable tasks: One is putting out a wealth of concrete practices for the ambitious, without relying on gauzy clichés. The second is that Mr. Newport resists the corporate groupthink of constant connectivity without seeming like a curmudgeon, Wall Street Journal

As automation and outsourcing reshape the workplace, what new skill do we need? The ability to do deep work. Cal Newport's exciting new book is an introduction and guide to the kind of intense concentration in a distraction-free environment that results in fast, powerful learning and performance. Think of it as calisthenics for your mind-and start your exercise program today. -- Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and To Sell Is Human

DEEP WORK makes a compelling case for cultivating intense focus, and offers immediately actionable steps for infusing more of it into our lives. -- Adam M. Grant, author of Give and Take

Cal Newport is a clear voice in a sea of noise, bringing science and passion in equal measure. We don't need more clicks, more cats, and more emojis. We need brave work, work that happens when we refuse to avert our eyes. -- Seth Godin, author of What to Do When It's Your Turn

Cal Newport offers the most well-informed and astute collection of practical advice I have seen for reclaiming one's mental powers. -- Matthew B. Crawford, author of The World Beyond Your Head

Just when you think you already know this stuff, DEEP WORK hits you with surprisingly unique and useful insights. Rule #3 alone, with its discussion of the 'Any-Benefit' mind-set, is worth the price of this book. -- Derek Sivers, founder, Sivers.org

Here lies a playbook for professionals of all stripes to achieve true differentiation in a crowded talent marketplace. Cal Newport's latest shows why he is one of the most provocative thinkers on the future of work. -- Ben Casnocha, co-author of The Start-Up Of You

In this strong self-help book, Newport declares that the habits of modern professionals-checking email at all hours, rushing from meeting to meeting, and valuing multitasking above all else-only stand in the way of truly valuable work, Publisher's Weekly

[A] worthwhile distraction., ValueWalk --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
