The concept quickly hit a nerve. Newport's articles on the topic have been read hundreds of thousands of times and were picked up and promoted by other bloggers and traditional media.Now, in Deep Work, Newport explains how to systematically train the mind to focus and reorganize our work lives so that deep work is at the core. He argues why this shift is crucial to stay ahead in a complex information economy. Put simply: developing and cultivating a deep work practice is one of the best decisions we can make in an increasingly distracted world.

"The friendly urgency in Jeff Bottoms's narration is perfect for this multilayered advice on managing distractions and improving personal productivity. With diction that sounds both classy and conversational, he communicates like a helpful friend, which keeps this author's outsize intellect from sounding overbearing. A lot of the advice is certainly available from other management and mental health authors--suggestions such as minimizing distractions or working in blocks of uninterrupted time. But Newport's ideas sound more pointed because he places his recommendations within the context of the growing cultural pressure to multitask constantly and be connected to everyone. With fascinating studies and personal vignettes illustrating his points, this is a fast-moving and useful lesson for anyone who is struggling to get more done in any complex work setting.
