Review

Deep Work accomplishes two considerable tasks: One is putting out a wealth of concrete practices for the ambitious, without relying on gauzy cliches. The second is that Mr. Newport resists the corporate groupthink of constant connectivity without seeming like a curmudgeon.

-- "Wall Street Journal"

Deep Work makes a compelling case for cultivating intense focus, and offers immediately actionable steps for infusing more of it into our lives.

-- "Adam M. Grant, New York Times bestselling author"

As a presence on the page, Newport is exceptional in the realm of self-help authors.

-- "New York Times Book Review"

Cal Newport is a clear voice in a sea of noise, bringing science and passion in equal measure.

-- "Seth Godin, New York Times bestselling author"

Cal Newport offers the most well-informed and astute collection of practical advice I have seen for reclaiming one's mental powers.

-- "Matthew B. Crawford, author of The World beyond Your Head"

Cal Newport's exciting new book is an introduction and guide to the kind of intense concentration in a distraction-free environment that results in fast, powerful learning and performance.

-- "Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author"

Deep work is the killer app of the knowledge economy: it is only by concentrating intensely that you can master a difficult discipline or solve a demanding problem.

-- "Economist (London)"

Here lies a playbook for professionals of all stripes to achieve true differentiation in a crowded talent marketplace. Cal Newport's latest shows why he is one of the most provocative thinkers on the future of work.

-- "Ben Casnocha, coauthor of The Start-Up of You "

In this strong self-help book, Newport declares that the habits of modern professionals...only stand in the way of truly valuable work...Newport's disarming self-awareness...and emphasis on a meaningful work practice that's 'rich with productivity and meaning' makes for an excellent lesson in focusing on quality rather than quantity at work.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Just when you think you already know this stuff, Deep Work hits you with surprisingly unique and useful insights...with its discussion of the 'Any-Benefit' mind-set, is worth the price of this book.

-- "Derek Sivers, founder, Sivers.org" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Genre: Productivity | Creativity | Hacks | Self Development | Business
Rating : 5/5

Deep work is a book for everyone although the author emphasises it for knowledge workers. In my opinion it is for businessmen who wants to achieve their goals in their hectic schedule, teachers (faculties) who wants to pursue research despite their academic duties, or an entrepreneur who wants to increase the productivity and creativity of the team, or just some random guy who wants to spend some quality time with family but cannot. Books helps you to develop self discipline.
This book can best be placed among books like Outliers/Mastery/Flow/Peak etc. where importance of work and it’s consequences are explained. Only thing is Deep work is more detailed in terms of strategies and bit less on psychology studies.
The book is hardly 300 pages but will require some time to fully understand all hacks & strategies. Work habits of great people like Carl Jung, J K Rowling, Bill Gates, Walter Isaacson and many others are very well explained. The author also writes about his life and experience.
After reading this book you will definitely be more productive, you might be able schedule every minute/hour/day of your life, you would be able to effectively choose your career job and not fall for dead end jobs, and lastly decipher what is fact from fiction when it comes to big companies.

After completing this book and from my experience at different work places I think the book may be a bit ambitious for developing & undeveloped countries. This is because I think in this countries there is still lack of work ethics and your company/institute may not respond as the book says or they may not even consider deep work as meaningful. All in all deep work gives a positive experience.
