Review: Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World

Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World by Cal Newport
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I've gone back and forth with this book. While listening to it some parts were just 2-stars and others were 4-stars. Perhaps the 4-star part was confirmation bias on my part. That said, some things in this book are just causes to roll your eyes, and other parts make a ton of sense. Over the past 15 years, when I've been quite productive, I've actually used some of the approaches discussed in this book (I just didn't know I was doing deep work). I think it's a wortwhile read, but at the same time it falls into a Malcolm Gladwell book: coming back to the same point over and over again with many different examples. What book 400 pages could have easily been an 20 page academic article.
