    In this timely and enlightening audiobook, Cal Newport introduces a philosophy for technology use that has already improved countless lives. Digital minimalists are all around us. They're the calm, happy people who can hold long conversations without furtive glances at their phones. They can have fun with friends and family and eat out at restaurants without the obsessive urge to document the experience...Now, Newport gives us a name for this quiet movement and makes a case for its urgency in our tech-saturated world.

    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.

    Cal Newport's clearly written manifesto flies in the face of conventional wisdom by suggesting that it should be a person's talent and skill - and not necessarily their passion - that determines their career path. Newport, who graduated from Dartmouth College (Phi Beta Kappa) and earned a PhD from MIT, contends that trying to find what drives us, instead of focusing on areas in which we naturally excel, is ultimately harmful and frustrating to job seekers.

    In this book, I dedicated my effort to showing you the real meanings and reasons of managing your time effectively. It is not just to help you be more productive in your work but more importantly to have more time to spend with your beloved ones. At the end of the day, it is not about what you have accomplished that makes you feel fulfilled, it is who you become and those you help, care about, and inspire that matters the most. That is the ultimate purpose of this book, and I really believe that you will enjoy it.

    La capacité qui revêt le plus de valeur dans notre économie se fait de plus en plus rare. Celui qui la développe se donne les moyens d'accomplir de grandes choses. Le travail en profondeur, ou deep work, désigne une activité professionnelle menée dans un état de concentration absolue qui pousse nos capacités cognitives jusqu'à leurs limites. Ces efforts créent de la valeur, affinent nos compétences et sont difficiles à reproduire. En d'autres termes, le travail en profondeur est comme un superpouvoir dans notre économie toujours plus concurrentielle.

    Ständige Ablenkung ist heute das Hindernis Nummer eins für ein effizienteres Arbeiten. Sei es aufgrund lauter Großraumbüros, vieler paralleler Kommunikationskanäle, dauerhaftem Online-Sein oder der Schwierigkeit zu entscheiden, was davon nun unsere Aufmerksamkeit am meisten benötigt. Sich ganz auf eine Sache konzentrieren zu können wird damit zu einer raren, aber wertvollen und entscheidenden Fähigkeit im Arbeitsalltag.
