's review

really liked it

Deals in the generalities of working deeply, without distraction. It spends a lot of time trying to prove the value, which I didn't think was necessary. And it seemed short on details or concrete plans. It had four principles, which were valuable, but I looked at the book more as motivation or focus around the idea, rather than a tutorial.

Still, worth reading. I enjoy Newport's writing style.

Nathan Agreed. I just got around to reading this and it was more like a good reminder. If you want more details on how to do this, read High a Performance Habits. One of the habits is productivity.
