Deep Work – Cal Newport
This is one for the smartphone addicts – the people who can’t get through an email without checking Facebook, the people who hold a conversation with one eye on their texts.

This book aims to bring more deep focus to your life, allowing you to streamline your work, and become more productive into the bargain.
