"Intriguing and intelligent."
The Times

"[Cal's] ideas are not of the self-optimising wake-up-before-you-go-to-bed life-hack brigade but rather to encourage deep focus, away from the noise of social media and performative busyness."
Financial Times

"This brilliant and timely book is for all of us who've grown disillusioned with conventional productivity advice, yet still yearn to get meaningful things done. With his trademark blend of philosophical depth and realistic techniques, Newport outlines an approach that's more human and vastly more effective in the long run."
Oliver Burkeman, author of Four Thousand Weeks

"If you are stretched thin and having trouble getting everything done, you need to speed up, right? Wrong. In Slow Productivity, Cal Newport does what he does best, delivering counterintuitive secrets that just might save your career and sanity."
Arthur C. Brooks, author of Build the Life You Want

"With profound insights backed by research, analysis, and examples from the lives of scientists and artists, Cal Newport explores a better way to work--one that promises more calm, clarity, and creativity."
Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project

"Cal's mix of storytelling and practical advice makes this a super engaging read that you'll want to revisit repeatedly."
Ali Abdaal, author of Feel-Good Productivity

"For anyone who wants individual advice on how to be more productive, there's nobody better than Cal Newport: calm, evidence-based, and inspiring."
Johann Hari, author of Stolen Focus

"Slow Productivity is an opportunity to understand why we so often feel frustrated with the demands of the world we live in--and what we can accomplish if we choose to turn inward, once again."
Meera Lee Patel, author of Start Where You Are

"Slow Productivity is a life-changing book! Newport shares an eye-opening new way to understand productivity and will reshape the way you think about the joy we can--and should-- be getting from work. It's already changed the way I make decisions about how I spend my time. A must read!"
Laurie Santos, Chandrika and Ranjan Tandon Professor of Psychology at Yale University and host of The Happiness Lab podcast

"Slow Productivity is a fantastic blend of stories and practical tips aimed at helping people work in a more sustainable fashion -- without compromising their most important projects (which may include personal sanity)."
David Epstein, author of The Sports Gene and Range
