This book is a must-read for everyone, especially because of the times we live in. Technology makes it possible for the governments around the world to monitor what we think, say, or do. Bots are able to shape public opinions on a massive scale. The 140 and 280 character limits on social networking sites have damaged our capacity to think critically and empathise with others.
Stale eggs or even un-cooked eggs smell extraordinarily bad, don’t they? The word “egregious” should remind you of stale and un-cooked eggs on someone’s face. Eww!
The book is a light read with good pacing. It has gunfights, sex, and drama. The city Tampa feels like San Francisco with a little bit of Cuba and Japan thrown into the mix. The environment, scenery, and protagonist totally give you the feel of Blade runner. Hence fans of this genre would totally love it.
The word “altruistic” can be thought of as combination of two words- “all” and “true”. When we are true to one and all , we go beyond our individualistic concerns , for the sake of the well being of others. Thus, we become “altruistic”. Remember thus!
“Deep Work” is a reminder by Cal Newport that we can live a more fulfilled life, a happier life, if only we started focusing, avoiding distractions.
