Cal Newport’s Digital Minimalism is a timely cultural critique on our reliance on technology and a practical guide to regaining control of our attention.
Deep Work is perhaps the most valuable skill you can learn and leverage in our attention-deficit society. In this book, Newport makes an unsettlingly strong case for how and why we should be reducing our use of technology (in particular, social media), and why we need to be more specific and careful about our use.
With simple language but profound insights, Digital Minimalism teaches us where to draw the line and how to focus this energy and attention on what matters instead; our goals and quality of life. Time off our digital devices is the key to living a focused life in a noisy world.
