When Cal Newport coined the term deep work on his popular blog, Study Hacks, in 2012, he found the concept quickly hit a nerve.

If you want honesty about productivity and be better at it, this is a book for you. Cal breaks down how to go about in delving into "Deep Work". I'll certainly be listening to the book again and remind myself of the Deep Work principles.
