Moving on to the 13th page of the book “Deep Work” – Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World by Cal Newport.
Pages 13 to 18 emphasize the importance of Deep work and how the author fell in love with it and what benefits and achievements he derived from it.
The chapter 1 begins from page 21 – introducing three winners (extremely successful people):
- Nate Silver
- David Heinemeier
- John Doerr
Page 22-23 mentions a book “Race against time” by Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee. The book talks about “Great Restructuring” in our labor markets – while, lot of people will lose job in the new economy, a few would become more valued and they will thrive.
Another reference is made to the book “Average is over” by Tyler Cowen.
This title itself says it all – “Average is over”!
