This book is thick, lengthy, and challenging. Challenging to my habits and derived personality and challenging to grok the depth of Newport’s finer points. All in all, it’s quite riveting. It, among other inputs in my life, has encouraged me to try going deep. I’ll probably read it again at some point after having tried to live a little deeper for a number of months, but wow. Overall quite impressed and moved by the Cal Newport’s ideas and mindset. After getting married and transitioning to remote development in 2020, this book came at just the right time.
