A World Without E-mail
New York Times bestselling author Cal Newport offers a bold new approach to freeing workers from the dictatorship of the inbox and unleashing a new era of productivity.
Modern professionals communicate constantly. Their days are defined by an incessant barrage of incoming messages and digital conversations back and forth, a state of constant, stressful verbiage from which no one can disconnect and, as a result, the cognitive bandwidth needed to do productive work is not available.
Based on years of research, in A World Without E-mail, Cal Newport, a writer and professor of computer science, argues that our current approach to work is wrong and lays out a series of principles and concrete instructions for correcting it.
• The author advocates a workplace in which clear processes define how tasks are identified, distributed and reviewed. Each person works on fewer tasks and the increasing burden of administrative tasks is reduced.
• Above all, important communication is optimized, and inboxes and chat channels are no longer central to the work execution process.
• A World Without E-mail will convince you that the time has come to make bold changes and show you exactly how to make them.
