Samenvatting

'Digital Minimalism is the Marie Kondo of mobile phones' Evening Standard 'An eloquent, powerful and enjoyably practical guide to cutting back on screen time' The Times ------------------------------------ Read 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 book, 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 thirty-day 'digital declutter' process, making sure you're in control of your tech and not the other way around. ------------------------------------ 'An urgent call to action for anyone serious about being in command of their own life' Ryan Holiday 'Cal's call for meaningful and engaged interactions is just what the world needs right now' Daniel Levitin, author of The Organised Mind

Recensie(s)

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 -- Daniel J. Levitin * 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 -- Greg McKeown * 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 -- Pete Adeney * 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 -- Seth Godin * 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 -- Adam Alter * author of Irresistible * Cal Newport has discovered a cure for the techno-exhaustion that plagues our always-on, digitally caffeinated culture -- Joshua Fields Millburn * The Minimalists * This book is an urgent call to action for anyone serious about being in command of their own life -- Ryan Holiday * 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 -- Julia Hobsbawm * 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 *
