Popular blogger Cal Newport reveals the new key to achieving success and true meaning in professional life: the ability to master distraction. Many modern knowledge workers now spend most of their brain power battling distraction and interruption, whether because of the incessant pinging of devices, noisy open-plan offices or the difficulty of deciding what deserves their attention the most. When Cal Newport coined the term deep work on his popular blog, Study Hacks, in 2012, he found the concept quickly hit a nerve.

Good story lacking a better structure...

I enjoyed the first part of the book thoroughly. With Ray Dalio himself reading his story, you can feel like you have the privilege of Dalio sitting with you in one room and telling you his past and his thinking. However, the second part felt like a never-ending enumeration of principles. The latter is probably better to read as a book rather than listening to. As to the overall structure of the book, I could imagine a better way of linking the two parts together as it is overall difficult to relate to the second part.

One of the 20th century's enduring works, One Hundred Years of Solitude is a widely beloved and acclaimed novel known throughout the world and the ultimate achievement in a Nobel Prize-winning career. The novel tells the story of the rise and fall of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendía family. Rich and brilliant, it is a chronicle of life, death, and the tragicomedy of humankind. In the beautiful, ridiculous, and tawdry story of the Buendía family, one sees all of humanity, just as in the history, myths, growth, and decay of Macondo, one sees all of Latin America.

It's an interesting book but I struggled to finish it... It felt like a 100 years indeed. I reckon the original in Spanish is better than the translation.
