Description

How much more would you achieve
if you weren’t drowning in email? And
how much happier would you be?

Constant communication has become a key part of work today and we check our bursting business inboxes on average every 5.4 minutes. But at what expense?

The bestselling author of Deep Work and Digital Minimalism, Cal Newport, argues that this steady flow  of distractions disrupts us from achieving any meaningful work, causes us undue stress and is costing businesses millions in the form of untapped potential. Newport offers a radical vision of a world without email – a world with increased creativity, productivity, collaboration and calm.

Drawing on sociology, behavioural economics and fascinating case studies of thriving email-free companies, Newport explains how this modern toll doesn’t work for our ancient brains, why email is making us miserable and unproductive, and shows us how to transform ad redesign work without the constant ping of emails distracting us.

This revolutionary book offers practical solutions you can implement today, and shows you how dramatically reducing or abandoning email will liberate you to do your most profound, fulfilling and creative work – and be happier too.
