Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World - EAN 9780349413686 blends cultural criticism with practical guidance. Anyone looking for concentrated success in a distracted environment should read DEEP WORK.
It takes the reader on a journey through memorable stories—from Carl Jung constructing a stone tower in the woods to a social media pioneer purchasing a round-trip business class ticket to Tokyo to write a book free from distraction in the air—and no-nonsense advice, like the assertion that most serious professionals should quit using social media and that you should practice being bored.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Author and lecturer Cal Newport changes the narrative of effect in a connected world in his book Deep Work. Instead of arguing that distraction is undesirable, he embraces the power of its opponent. In the first section of this book, he argues that developing a strong work ethic will be extremely beneficial in practically any line of work. Then he offers a demanding training program, described as a set of four "rules," for modifying your mindset and routines to promote this skill.
