Book 38 — Digital Minimalism

Book Club Updates

It's been quiet on the Book Club front the last two weeks.

Weeks 23 – 24

"Digital Minimalism" by Cal Newport

Cal Newport's book was an assignment in our club last year. Previously, we read "Deep Work", this time we will learn about "Digital Minimalism".

While we mostly agreed that the concept of deep work is an interesting and useful one, there was a general consensus that the book was not as good as it could be. Also, designing your life for deep work may make sense if you are an author or a scholar, but most of the world works in connection with other people. Cutting down the communication altogether is simply not an option.

With this book, we hope to learn some useful tactics on how to get more focus without necessarily becoming a full-time hermit.


Weeks 25 – 26

"Prisoners of Geography" by Tim Marshall

Have you ever wondered how geography influences the global geopolitical order? If you'd like to better understand the situation of Crimea or Tibet, Tim Marshall's book is a great way to start!
