Learn how to combat screen addiction and get your technology use in check
The urge to pick up our phones every few minutes has become a nervous twitch that shatters our time into shards too small to be present. Our addiction to tech leaves us feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. But it doesn't have to be that way.
In this timely book, professor Cal Newport shows us how to pair back digital distractions and live better with less technology.
Introducing us to digital minimalists -- the calm, happy people who can hold long conversations without furtive glances at their phones or obsessively document everything they eat -- Newport reveals how to live more intentionally in our tech-saturated world.
By following a thirty-day 'digital declutter' process, you'll learn to:
· Rethink your relationship with social media
· Prioritize 'high bandwidth' conversations over low quality text chains
· Rediscover the pleasures of the offline world
Take back control from your devices and become a digital minimalist.
'Digital Minimalism is the Marie Kondo of mobile phones' Evening Standard

'An eloquent, powerful and enjoyably practical guide to cutting back on screen time' The Times
'An urgent call to action for anyone serious about being in command of their own life' Ryan Holiday

'Cal's call for meaningful and engaged interactions is just what the world needs right now' Daniel Levitin, author of The Organised Mind

Anonim a dat nota:

In an era where social media took so much space in our lifes is quite scary to take charge of your time and to do a digital detox. The idea of this book is that we can improve our lifes if we become aware of what technology provides to us and if we use the technology which is useful. In the beginning, just when I road the description of this book I became defensive. Social media is the easiest and fastest way for information, but then I realised my time on social media was not just for finding information, I was also binge scrolling, liking, commenting and then asking myself where did my time go. Even if is recommended to have a digital detox for 30 days, in some cases you can improve your life just by limiting your time using technology, taking some breaks from it and being real clear on what technology really provides to you. If your account on some social media platform provides you stress and reasons for comparisons, you definetely will be much happier without it. You may also feel the fear of missing out when you limit your access on social media, but there are ways to be sure you will get what is important for you.

Notă biografică

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. He is the author of five books, including So Good They Can't Ignore You and the bestselling Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World. Newport's ideas have been published in top print publications, including The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Economist, the Financial Times and the Guardian, but as a dedicated digital minimalist, Newport has never had a social media account. Newport lives in Maryland with his wife and two sons.


Cal Newport's book is a refreshing antidote to the poisonous cycle of what's new? - what's new? that this digital, hyperconnected decade has seduced us into. Building on the economics of Henry David Thoreau, Cal's call for calmer waters, for meaningful and engaged interactions, is just what the world needs right now
A wonderfully entangled, intertwined, and erudite series of strategies, philosophies, disciplines, and techniques to sharpen your focus and dive deep into your work
As a presence on the page, Newport is exceptional in the realm of self-help authors
Cal Newport speaks human truth to digital power. He calls out our enslavement to modern devices and calmly presents a better way to live and work
This book is an urgent call to action for anyone serious about being in command of their own life
Cal Newport has discovered a cure for the techno-exhaustion that plagues our always-on, digitally caffeinated culture
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
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
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
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
Digital Minimalism is the Marie Kondo of mobile phones
Willpower, tips, and vague resolutions are not sufficient by themselves to tame the ability of new technologies to invade your cognitive landscape
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
