    In this eye-opening account, Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that "follow your passion" is good advice. Not only is the cliché flawed - preexisting passions are rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work - but it can also be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping. After making his case against passion, Newport sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do.

    La capacité qui revêt le plus de valeur dans notre économie se fait de plus en plus rare. Celui qui la développe se donne les moyens d'accomplir de grandes choses. Le travail en profondeur, ou deep work, désigne une activité professionnelle menée dans un état de concentration absolue qui pousse nos capacités cognitives jusqu'à leurs limites. Ces efforts créent de la valeur, affinent nos compétences et sont difficiles à reproduire. En d'autres termes, le travail en profondeur est comme un superpouvoir dans notre économie toujours plus concurrentielle.

    In this book, I dedicated my effort to showing you the real meanings and reasons of managing your time effectively. It is not just to help you be more productive in your work but more importantly to have more time to spend with your beloved ones. At the end of the day, it is not about what you have accomplished that makes you feel fulfilled, it is who you become and those you help, care about, and inspire that matters the most. That is the ultimate purpose of this book, and I really believe that you will enjoy it.
