The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck is a cringy read, I couldn't get past the first chapter. Deep Work as a whole can be summarized in a sentence. My interpretation is: put away distractions and focus on getting things done. There's other advice there but none of it is anything you haven't heard of before. CODE is great on the other hand. Just skip the nonsense self-help stuff.

I agree with your assessment about "Deep Work" but I still recommend folks to read it, just to reiterate what you probably already know. I think it helps us remind ourselves to focus on our life, when there are so many distractions.
