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.

Not what you are looking for...
It has a seductive title. Everyone wants to learn how to work harder and for longer but trust me - this will not help you. I've listened to many similar audiobooks but this is based on the most loosely referenced information that will supposedly help you to improve your concentration. Nearly all of it is common sense and some of it is simply outlandish: "Memorise a deck of cards" "Store information as variables in your brain"??? Hmmmmm
