Description

Cal Newport discusses in his new book, Deep Work: Rules For Focused Success In A Distracted World, about how professionals of today have started valuing quantity over quality; and how this has turned young professionals of today into puppets who try to indulge in extensive multitasking, dealing with multiple emails and projects. This prevents them from doing 'deep work'; which is focused work free from all other distractions. This also means that the professionals of today should sort out their priorities. Newport uses principles of psychology and neuroscience to enhance his points. He elaborates how to improve a person's cognitive abilities and how employers should encourage workers to not take shortcuts for completing projects. He claims that the best way to break away from the corporate race is to take a break from technology and social media and use some alone-time to rewind and introspect. Newport enforces the beliefs of a non-technophile to deliver work that is productive and efficiently delivered.

From the Back Cover 

 One of the most valuable skills in our economy is becoming increasingly rare. 

'Deep Work' is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. Coined by the author on his popular blog Study Hacks, Deep Work will make you better at what what you do, let you achieve more in less time and provide the sense of true fulfillment that comes from the sense of true fulfilment that comes from the mastery of a skill. In short, deep work is like a superpower in our increasingly competitive economy. 

And yet most people, whether knowledge workers in noisy open-plan offices or creatives struggling to sharpen their vision, have lost the ability to go deep-spending their days instead in a frantic blur of email and social media, not even realising there's a better way.  

 A mix of cultural criticism and actionable advice, Deep work will point the way to anyone seeking focused success in a distracted world.

'Makes a compelling case for cultivating intense focus, and offers immediately actionable steps'
