In recent years digital technologies have infiltrated many aspects of our daily life. And while a lot of these technological changes are highlight beneficial to our work and daily life, many seem to struggle with the amount of control these technologies have over their lives.

In his new book “Digital Minimalism”, Newport proposes a bold new solution: a minimalist approach to technology use in which users radically reduce the time they are spending online, while focusing on a small set of carefully-selected activities while happily ignoring the rest. 

Newport shows his reader the growing subculture of digital minimalism, introducing individuals who have build success stories by intentional technology use and implementing decluttering processes into their online lives.
