Editorial Reviews

Review

“Cal Newport’s Digital Minimalism is the best book I’ve read in some time about our fraught relationship with technology... If you’re looking for a blueprint to guide you as you liberate yourself from the shackles of email, social networks, smartphones, and screens, let this book be your guide." —Adam Alter, author of Irresistible
 
“I challenge you not to devour this wonderful book in one sitting. I certainly did, and I started applying Cal’s ideas to my own life immediately.”
—Greg McKeown, author of Essentialism
 
“You’re not the user, you’re the product. Hang up, log off, and tune in to a different way to be in the world. Bravo, Cal. Smart advice for good people.” 
—Seth Godin, author of This is Marketing
 
“This book is an urgent call to action for anyone serious about being in command of their own life.” 
–Ryan Holiday, author of The Obstacle is the Way
 
“Cal Newport has discovered a cure for the techno-exhaustion that plagues our always-on, digitally caffeinated culture.”
—Joshua Fields Millburn, The Minimalists
 
“I hope that everyone who owns a mobile phone and has been wondering where their time goes gets a chance to absorb the ideas in this book. It’s amazing how the same strategy can work for both financial success and mental well-being: Put more energy into what makes you happy, and ruthlessly strip away the things that don’t.”
—Peter Adeney, aka Mr. Money Mustache

“Cal’s call for meaningful and engaged interactions is just what the world needs right now.”
 —Daniel Levitin, author of The Organized Mind

"What a timely and useful book! It's neither hysterical nor complacent - a workable guide to being thoughtful about digital media. It's already made me rethink some of my media use in a considered way. " —Naomi Alderman, New York Times bestselling author of The Power

“Digital Minimalism is a welcome invitation to reconsider how we want to use our screens rather than letting the screens (and the billionaires behind them) make the call.” –KJ Dell'Antonia, author of How to be a Happier Parent

"Simple, insightful, and actionable, this philosophy provides a sorely needed framework for thriving in the digital age. It will transform many lives for the better, including my own." 
—Ryder Carroll, New York Times bestselling author of The Bullet Journal Method

Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport.
Cal Newport is already Professor and has done lots of research work. His job requires him to do do. Like mine (Faculty in Indian Institute of Technology). We need to have undivided attention on research and other works. It has become my main point to know the background of the author before reading any book (it helps)!!
I read this book in March 2019, when I was struggling to reduce my time spent on social media and wanted to focus on my research work. Things are liked out this book:
- It exposes our addiction on social media by means from the point of evolution.
- Ignorance is truly bliss sometimes, means if we use social media in a controlled way it helps us to focus on tasks which will help in our growth.
- It is not our fault we are glued to screens, engineers and behaviour scientists are paid lots of money to keep our eyeballs glued to their app. There are machine learning algorithms running behind the screen to push us towards targeted ads and stickier content.
- How come our ancestors didn’t have Instagram, Wassapp and Facebook and they lead a happy life ! Now we have become slaves of someone else approval on digital media.
- The point is to focus on few things which we value instead of being online all time in social media. It drains our energy.
- In the end “Your time = Their Money“ and Social media is the new smoking
- There are so many apps available in AppStore, it does not mean we need to use every app to find some meaning in life.
- My rating: 5/5 and good book for students.
Regards
Mayank Mishra (Author of Diary of a PhD Student)
