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.

Recensione:

As a presence on the page, Newport is exceptional in the realm of self-help authors (New York Times Book Review)

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 (Julia Hobsbawm author of Fully Connected)

This book is an urgent call to action for anyone serious about being in command of their own life (Ryan Holiday author of The Obstacle is the Way)

Cal Newport has discovered a cure for the techno-exhaustion that plagues our always-on, digitally caffeinated culture (Joshua Fields Millburn The Minimalists)

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 (Adam Alter author of Irresistible)

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 (Seth Godin author of This is Marketing)

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 (Pete Adeney aka Mr. Money Mustache)

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 (Greg McKeown author of Essentialism)

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 (Daniel J. Levitin author of The Organised Mind)

Digital Minimalism is the Marie Kondo of mobile phones (Evening Standard)

L'autore:

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.
