Product description

Review

"Cal Newport's Digital Minimalism is the best book I've read in some time about our fraught relationship with technology... If you're looking for a blueprint to guide you as you liberate yourself from the shackles of email, social networks, smartphones, and screens, let this book be your guide." --Adam Alter, author of Irresistible

"I challenge you not to devour this wonderful book in one sitting. I certainly did, and I started applying Cal's ideas to my own life immediately." --Greg McKeown, author of Essentialism

"You're not the user, you're the product. Hang up, log off, and tune in to a different way to be in the world. Bravo, Cal. Smart advice for good people." --Seth Godin, author of This is Marketing

"This book is an urgent call to action for anyone serious about being in command of their own life." -Ryan Holiday, author of The Obstacle is the Way

"Cal Newport has discovered a cure for the techno-exhaustion that plagues our always-on, digitally caffeinated culture." --Joshua Fields Millburn, The Minimalists

"I hope that everyone who owns a mobile phone and has been wondering where their time goes gets a chance to absorb the ideas in this book. It's amazing how the same strategy can work for both financial success and mental well-being: Put more energy into what makes you happy, and ruthlessly strip away the things that don't." --Peter Adeney, aka Mr. Money Mustache

"Cal's call for meaningful and engaged interactions is just what the world needs right now." --Daniel Levitin, author of The Organized Mind

"What a timely and useful book! It's neither hysterical nor complacent - a workable guide to being thoughtful about digital media. It's already made me rethink some of my media use in a considered way. " --Naomi Alderman, New York Times bestselling author of The Power

"Digital Minimalism is a welcome invitation to reconsider how we want to use our screens rather than letting the screens (and the billionaires behind them) make the call." -KJ Dell'Antonia, author of How to be a Happier Parent

"Simple, insightful, and actionable, this philosophy provides a sorely needed framework for thriving in the digital age. It will transform many lives for the better, including my own." --Ryder Carroll, New York Times bestselling author of The Bullet Journal Method
