Digital Minimalism is the Marie Kondo of mobile phones * Evening Standard * 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 * author of The Organised Mind * 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 * author of Essentialism * 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 * aka Mr. Money Mustache * 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 * author of This is Marketing * 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 * author of Irresistible * Cal Newport has discovered a cure for the techno-exhaustion that plagues our always-on, digitally caffeinated culture * The Minimalists * This book is an urgent call to action for anyone serious about being in command of their own life * author of The Obstacle is the Way * 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 * author of Fully Connected * As a presence on the page, Newport is exceptional in the realm of self-help authors * New York Times Book Review *

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 * Naomi Alderman, author of The Power * Willpower, tips, and vague resolutions are not sufficient by themselves to tame the ability of new technologies to invade your cognitive landscape * The New Yorker * Digital Minimalism is the Marie Kondo of mobile phones * Evening Standard * 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.

Author Information

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.
