Cal Newport provides insight from his experience, research, and lessons from others on how to get in the flow of your work to be the most productive. I read this after his first book “So Good They Can’t Ignore You” and “Deep Work” helped to build on the lessons in the first book.

In general, the key is to find a good work flow by stimulating you in whatever works best and finding blocks of time without interruption to get deep work done. This seems like a good way to be most productive and is one that I generally try to do but will practice more after reading this book.

I give this book 4 stars as it is better than his first book but still lingers on too long on particular subjects. Check it out so you can get more deep work done.
