Engaging and substantive ... 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. (The Wall Street Journal)
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 LINCHPIN)
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 ORIGINALS)
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)
Popular blogger Cal Newport reveals the new key to achieving success and true meaning in professional life - the ability to master distraction.See all Product description

Gives the reasons why and then some strategies for how you can get more deep work into your life. My only critique was that some of the strategies seemed a bit onerous and can only see them working for the super disciplined. The average reader of the book is probably struggling with focus hence why they bought the book. Will keep this on my Kindle as a very useful reference though.
But after reading this book I m very much bought into the advantage of what Cal N. calls deep work, as it re-enforces my earlier assumptions.
The advice offered is practical and easy to follow. But some things are too much for me I have to say.
Great things to learn though. Look forward to implementing some of the concepts in this book, thanks to the author.
