Minimalism is the art of knowing how much is just enough. Digital minimalism applies this idea to our personal technology. It's the key to living a focused life in an increasingly noisy world. In this timely and enlightening book, bestselling author Cal Newport introduces a philosophy for technology that can be put to use to support your goals and values—rather than letting technology use you.
