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)

DEEP WORK is the killer app of the knowledge economy: it is only by concentrating intensely that you can master a difficult discipline or solve a demanding problem (The Economist)

This is a deep, not shallow, book which can enrich your life (The Globe and Mail)

A wonderfully entangled, intertwined, and erudite series of strategies, philosophies, disciplines, and techniques to sharpen your focus and dive deep into your work (800-CEO-READ)

DEEP WORK is now one of my all-time favorite books, and I'm not joking when I say it was a life-changing read for me. I think it can be for you too (Brett McKay, author of The Art of Manliness)

What emerges most powerfully is the sense that it's wrong to think of deep work as one more thing you've got to try to cram into your schedule. Truly committing to it, Newport suggests, transforms the rest of your time - so you'll crank through shallow work faster, be more present in your home life, and eliminate time wasted switching between tasks. Depth, in short, isn't at odds with a full life - it facilitates it. I'm persuaded. (Oliver Burkeman, The Guardian)

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)

A fascinating book by American university professor Cal Newport... he provides excellent practical strategies for overcoming modern distractions (Yoni Birnaum Jewish Chronicle)
