Description

Many modern knowledge workers now spend most of their brain power battling distraction and interruption, whether because of the incessant pinging of devices, noisy open-plan offices or the difficulty of deciding what deserves your attention the most.

When Cal Newport coined the term 'deep work' on his popular blog, Study Hacks, in 2012, he found the concept quickly hit a nerve. Most of us, after all, are excruciatingly familiar with shallow work instead - distractedly skimming the surface of our workload and never getting to the important part. Newport began exploring the methods and mindset that foster a practice of distraction-free productivity at work, and now, in DEEP WORK, he shows how anyone can achieve this elusive state.

Through revealing portraits of both historical and modern-day thinkers, academics and leaders in the fields of technology, science and culture, and their deep work habits, Newport shares an inspiring collection of tools to wring every last drop of value out of your intellectual capacity. He explains why mastering this shift in work practices is crucial for anyone who intends to stay ahead in a complex information economy, and how to systematically train the mind to focus. Put simply: developing and cultivating a deep work practice is one of the best decisions we can make in an increasingly distracted world.

Reviews

  • Wenig überzeugendes Anfängerbuch

    Zwar enthält das Buch viele sinnvolle Ideen und Strategieansätze, doch kaum etwas davon ist originell, das meiste schon mal dagewesen. Für Fortgeschrittene daher zu langweilig. Der Autor bleibt häufig zu sehr im Ungefähren, die Beispiele sind zu konstruiert, um von praktischem Nutzen zu sein. Schade - so taugt das Buch auch für Anfänger nicht viel. Wirklich nervig ist, dass der Autor es nicht unterlassen kann, ständig Reklame für seine Person zu machen - wie toll und einzigartig er doch ist. Der Schreibstil ist überraschend fade. Es gibt wirklich weit Besseres.
