about

This book summary is created for individuals who want to flesh out the essential contents but are too busy to go through the entire book. This book is not intended to replace the original book.

Deep Work is an indispensable guide for anyone seeking how to focus on success in a distracting world. However, instead of arguing that distraction is bad, author and professor Cal Newport celebrates the power of its opposite. He flips the narrative on creating impact in a connected age.

Newport refers to ‘deep work’ as the discipline to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It’s a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce results in less time.

Divided into two parts, Deep Work first makes the case that in almost any profession, cultivating a deep work ethic will produce massive benefits. Next, the book presents a rigorous training regimen, shown as a series of four “rules” for transforming your mind and habits to support this skill. Newport promises, “One of the most valuable skills in our economy is becoming increasingly rare. If you master this skill, you’ll achieve extraordinary results.”

A mix of cultural criticism and actionable advice, Deep Work takes the reader on a journey through memorable stories – from Carl Jung building a stone tower in the woods to focus his mind to a social media pioneer buying a round trip business class ticket to Tokyo to write a book while on flight and free from distraction – and no-nonsense advice such as the claim that most serious professionals should quit social media and that you should practice being bored.

Wait no more, take action and get this book now!
