Description of this Book

'A presence on the page, Newport is exceptional in the realm of self-help authors' - New York Times 'Cal Newport is a clear voice in a sea of noise, bringing science and passion in equal measure' - Seth Godin, entrepreneur and author of Purple Cow 'A compelling case for cultivating intense focus, and offers immediately actionable steps for infusing more of it into our lives' - Adam Grant, author of Originals on Deep Work Turn off notifications, don't bring your smartphone into the bedroom, check Twitter less often. Chances are you've already heard these tips intended to help control your digital addiction. But they aren't enough. In Digital Minimalism, computer science professor Cal Newport provides a radical new solution to help us embrace and not be enslaved by technology: a 30 day digital detox. Newport explains how to use this offline period to evaluate what we want to use the Internet for so that when we come back online, we spend our time wisely on a small number of carefully crafted activities that connect us to things and people we truly value. With easily implementable tips and practices like replacing web surfing with reading rituals, scheduling when we use digital tools (not when we take breaks from them), never leaving or reading comments on social media, and focusing on creation not consumption, you'll learn how to use and integrate technology into a life well-lived. Read Digital Minimalism and you'll never again sacrifice your productivity to clickbait, or lose 40 minutes of your evening to Instagram.

Author's Bio

Cal Newport is a tenured professor of computer science at Georgetown University. In addition to his academic work, Newport writes about the intersection of these technologies with our personal and professional lives. He is the author of five books, including So Good They Can't Ignore You and the bestselling Deep Work- Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World. Newport's ideas have been published in top print publications, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Economist, the Financial Times and the Guardian, but as a dedicated digital minimalist, Newport has never had a social media account. Newport lives in Maryland with his wife and two sons.
