"Working right trumps finding the right work""
That phrase defines the book. Basically, what the author states here is some sort of guide to find and achieve career success.
I found the guide to be interesting but flawed. Flawed because it skips the most difficult part. The premisse here is that you have to build "career capital" first, and then start chasing things you actually care for, like a mission or more autonomy at work. The "career capital"is your differential, your unique value that is going to help you get there.
What Newport fails to tackle is...how are you going to find the motivation to build career capital in the first place? And if you do, how can you be effective in your learning? He does talk about deliberate practice, about stretching yourself and about the importance of feedback (there is a very interesting book about that called peak experiences and another one called mastery).
However what I would like to see would be something specifically applied to his model. Something not about learning itself, but about career trajectory, after all this is a book about career trajectory.
