A World Without Email: Reimagining Work in the Age of Overload is a bold piece of writing by Carl Newport that strikes at the cord of organizational inefficiencies by making a radical claim that escaping the tedium and tyranny of our inboxes could in fact make us more productive.
ABOUT THE BOOK
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 does not 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.
