This book is divided into two parts. The first part makes a case for why deep work is necessary in today's context. Cal handles different objections to the deep work hypothesis and to whom it is not applicable. I felt this section could be crisper/shorter.

The second part provides you with a plan and habits that you need to cultivate to do deep work. Cal shares his methods and routines that he follows to do deep work. Most of the compelling content can be found in this part of the book.

If you have not read Cal's other book "So good they cannot ignore you", you must read that book first.

One of the best books that I have read. A must read for our current generation that wallows in distractions. For its impact, consider this: I have uninstalled Instagram, logged out of Facebook (no more constant notifications), restricted internet use to a maximum of half an hour per day and started work on a long pending project.

And I believe that's just a start.

P.S: Also happens to be my first eBook. Read it on my new Amazon Fire tablet (a gift). And to my pleasant surprise and opposed to my long-held belief; I actually enjoyed the experience!

I would have hoped that the author get to the point. Quicker than he did. I loved the concept of deep work and I believe it is very important in today's world. However, the author spends a lot of time convincing us that deep work is great and so on and on and on. A message that could have been encapsulated in a short and crisp manner.

I found this book extremely useful. I am not into self help genre in books, but this is a very well researched piece of work. I highly recommend it to anyone who is facing the issue of not being able to bring the amount of focus needed for the line of work they are into.

The distraction has become the nemesis of all knowledge workers and students due to plethora of distracting social media technologies and apps and news sites and blogs etc. The author has credentials to write on this topic as he is Phd and now professor and serious researcher in university. His job demands serious ideas and content generation. Something he can do only if he devotes serious amount of time and attention to the task.
The author has first posited his argument of why deep work is essential for success in today's winner takes all knowledge economy. Having set the context he then proceeds to deliberate various ideas for carving out chunks of time where you can do serious work. He also suggests ways you can optimize your non working time like walking for lunch etc. His ideas and explanation for scheduling a day into chunks for deep work and shallow work is very useful. Unless you make a schedule and assign slots for serious deep work you are going to emails and whats app again and again. Unfortunately out modern corporate are not conducive for such serious deep work. Open offices, constant chatter around you, phones ringing, stream of useless meetings, conf calls, people just barging in, manager calling you to send some data or report for his equally useless review call. For these people this book is not going to help much.
But if you work on your own or own a business then this is the book for you. Apply the methods suggested and gain benefits. Actually most of what he says is commonsense. But a common sense is not common anymore and that is why we see and need such self help books.

Cal has very accurately identified the problem with keeping focus in today's distracting world, and given many methods to overcome them. The methods suggested by Cal are not only practical, but "tempting". The benefits of adopting the methods are immediate and already beginning to show in my work. Well done Cal.
