What you do for a living is much less important than how you do it. In this eye-opening account, Cal Newport debunks the belief that ''follow your passion'' is good advice.

Newport set out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do and uncovered the strategies they used and the pitfalls they avoided.
