I had been looking forward to the release of Cal Newport’s newest book, Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life In A Noisy World, for well over a month. Hot off the press with a release date of February 5th, I finished the entire book over a single weekend. In a well stitched together outline, the first half of the book discusses how technology (especially smartphones and social media) are affecting our lives in ways that we often don’t even realize. The second half is devoted to various practices and techniques that we can all use to give more purpose to our use of these technologies.
