'Digital Minimalism is the Marie Kondo of technology' - Evening Standard.
'An eloquent, powerful and enjoyably practical guide to cutting back on screen time' - The Times.
'It's a very, very useful read, and enjoyable, too. Newport is not a traditional Luddite - he's a computer science academic - but he is very well aware of the dangers that smartphones, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pose to our concentration at work, our quality leisure time and even our relationships. In seven chapters, he suggests ways of dealing with this and streamlining digital usage.' - Amazon Review.
'An urgent call to action for anyone serious about being in command of their own life' - Ryan Holiday.
'What a timely and useful book' - Naomi Alderman, author of The Power.
'. . . 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.
'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.
