‘A World Without Email crystallizes what so many of us feel intuitively but haven’t been able to explain: the way we’re working isn’t working.’ Drew Houston, co-founder and CEO of Dropbox
Emails are an integral part of work today. But the ‘kind regards’, forwards and attachments we check every 5.4 minutes are making us unproductive, stressed and costing businesses millions in untapped potential.
Bestselling author of Deep Work and Digital Minimalism, Cal Newport, is here to offer a radical new vision – a world without email. Drawing on sociology, behavioural economics and fascinating case studies of thriving email-free companies, Newport explains how this modern tool doesn’t work for our ancient brains and provides solutions you can implement today to transform your workday into one without constant, distracting pings.
Revolutionary and practical, A World Without Email will liberate you to do your most profound, fulfilling and creative work – and be happier too.
A call to action in an age where email rules. Not everything will be applicable to everyone, and there are places where I think Cal is a bit one sided with his criticisms of email. However, he brings up an interesting point, would many of our work processes benefit from using other means than email? In my opinion, yes, and Cal discusses many of these situations in this book. A must read for everyone tired of their lives being dictated by their inbox.
