Cal Newport – Digital Minimalism

Listen to Digital Minimalism and you’ll never again mindlessly sacrifice your productivity to clickbait or lose 40 minutes of your evening to your Instagram feed.

In this timely and enlightening audiobook, Cal Newport introduces a philosophy for technology use that has already improved countless lives.

Digital minimalists are all around us. They’re the calm, happy people who can hold long conversations without furtive glances at their phones. They can have fun with friends and family and eat out at restaurants without the obsessive urge to document the experience….

Now, Newport gives us a name for this quiet movement and makes a case for its urgency in our tech-saturated world. Drawing on a diverse array of real-life examples, from Amish farmers to harried parents to Silicon Valley programmers, Newport identifies the common practices of digital minimalists and the ideas that underpin them.

Digital Minimalism will teach you how to rethink your relationship to social media and rediscover the pleasures of the offline world. It’ll help you implement a 30-day ‘digital declutter’ process, making sure you’re in control of your tech and not the other way around.

Love it. I’ve been trying to cut down my social media use, especially. I’ve been trying to practice some of it, i hope it works well (it is for at least one week while listening to this audiobook). Very inspiring. Thank you! Also this is my first audiobook ever, and so far i’ve been looking forward for more.
