Popular blogger Cal Newport reveals the new key to achieving success and true meaning in professional life: the ability to master distraction. Many modern knowledge workers now spend most of their brain power battling distraction and interruption, whether because of the incessant pinging of devices, noisy open-plan offices or the difficulty of deciding what deserves their attention the most. When Cal Newport coined the term deep work on his popular blog, Study Hacks, in 2012, he found the concept quickly hit a nerve.

After listening to the book in the space of a week, I would recommend this to anyone seeking a way to spend their time at work or at home in a more balanced manner. This book outlines several methods used for being able to work in a concentrated manner for sectioned amounts of time without distraction, but also by reducing the amount of free time that is spent procrastinating in between these long projects, so that the work output is faster and of a higher quality overall, without sacrificing too much leisure time.
