Cal Newport is a tenured professor of Computer Science at Georgetown University. In addition to his academic work, Newport writes about the intersection of these technologies with our personal and professional lives. Newport's ideas have been published in top print publications, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Financial Times, but as a dedicate digital minimalist, Newport has never had a social media account.

I find the self-help quality a bit tedious and the stories about successful people are examples selected a posteriori that do not offer statistical significance to the authors case... however there is enough useful advice that I found the book worthwhile. I would recommend any academic to at least skim the text.

Worth reading as it made me think, but this could have been 3 blogposts worth of content instead. Read this book together with The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, as it provides the scientific context of many of Newports observations.

An interesting book to read along with David Allen's "Getting Things Done" (Allen is more practical).

Two parts. First part builds argument in favor of deep thinking instead of moving through life in a distracted haphazard method. Second part tries to give some practical advice along with stories of success.

Reaction- I will condense down what I need from the book into two or three pages of notes to apply in my life.

Good short read.

Deals specifically with reducing digital clutter by adopting a different philosophy and approach to tech usage. You'll learn:
• What is Digital Minimalism, what are its key principles, and how digital minimalists see and use technology differently;
• How to do a major lifestyle change with a 30-day digital declutter; and
• How to maintain digital minimalism by adopting a range of practices in your daily life.
