あらすじ・解説

New York Times best seller!

From New York Times best-selling author Cal Newport comes a bold vision for liberating workers from the tyranny of the inbox - and unleashing a new era of productivity.

Modern knowledge workers communicate constantly. Their days are defined by a relentless barrage of incoming messages and back-and-forth digital conversations - a state of constant, anxious chatter in which nobody can disconnect, and so nobody has the cognitive bandwidth to perform substantive work. There was a time when tools like email felt cutting edge, but a thorough review of current evidence reveals that the "hyperactive hive mind" workflow they helped create has become a productivity disaster, reducing profitability and perhaps even slowing overall economic growth. Equally worrisome, it makes us miserable. Humans are simply not wired for constant digital communication.

We have become so used to an inbox-driven workday that it's hard to imagine alternatives. But they do exist. Drawing on years of investigative reporting, author and computer science professor Cal Newport makes the case that our current approach to work is broken, then lays out a series of principles and concrete instructions for fixing it. In A World without Email, he argues for a workplace in which clear processes - not haphazard messaging - define how tasks are identified, assigned and reviewed. Each person works on fewer things (but does them better), and aggressive investment in support reduces the ever-increasing burden of administrative tasks. Above all else, important communication is streamlined, and inboxes and chat channels are no longer central to how work unfolds.

The knowledge sector's evolution beyond the hyperactive hive mind is inevitable. The question is not whether a world without email is coming (it is), but whether you'll be ahead of this trend. If you're a CEO seeking a competitive edge, an entrepreneur convinced your productivity could be higher, or an employee exhausted by your inbox, A World Without Email will convince you that the time has come for bold changes, and will walk you through exactly how to make them happen.

We interrupt this program for....

Once again Professor Newport backs up his statements with studies and solutions! Lowered friction offered by email allows for the depletion of your attention capital and reduces your work quantity and quality. Overwhelmed with a constant stream of unimportant emails or lacking the bandwidth to get the deep work done that your career requires is a common complaint. Stop complaining and try out the methods suggested here and see them start to work for you. I have followed Cal's Blog for years and adjusted my own workflows and they work so that I can. Try out and adjust the many solutions for your particular kind of deep work required in your work environments and see for yourself. It takes some vigilance but the alternative is the crushing continuous feed of unimportant communications. Thanks again Professor!

Waste of time

A terribly misleading book title. The entire premise of the book is that people get more done when not distracted. Email can be a distraction.

There, you've read the book.

Great idea, horrible book

Really great ideas, but they should have been edited better into a book half its size. It is just incredibly repetitive and endlessly dragging on and on, reiterating the same few things over and over and over. It has been so boring you get distracted by wishing the book was over.

Amazing and a must read

This is a must read for anybody who receives their work via email. Honestly this is a must read for everybody in the world today. With this book, I see most companies using task and project tracking software instead of email for their workflow within the next 2 to 3 years. Read this book and research those software‘s or else your company will fall behind.

It's not about email - it's about how to thrive in today's over cluttered world

Great elaborate on the history and common reality of the work environment focused on technology and digital world accompanied with clear to-be-apllied principles for all humans leveraging digital technologies. Surrounding stories might be perceived as too long or not interesting but they greatly illustrate the main points of the book.

Important

This book is more important than you might think. Knowledge-worker productivity is not understood well. Cal Newport makes a strong contribution.

Worth more the than the investment

The concepts in this book are worth far more than the monetary and time investment required to consume them. I suspect the investment it will require to put the concepts into practice will also be small relative to the rewards they will yield. I started listening with the idea that Dr. Newport would provide suggestions for doing away with email altogether; a grand objective that might seem naive to most. I was excited to find that he addresses much, much more.

Another great book!

Cal Newport books often resonate deeply with me and lead to actual changes my life. I've always believed that just because something can be beneficial doesn't it mean it is worth what is replacing. Technology often gums up things and make things worse with unattended consequences. I hope this book has major impact
