Description-
  • From the founders of the trailblazing software company 37signals, here is a different kind of business book -- one that explores a new reality. Today, anyone can be in business. Tools that used to be out of reach are now easily accessible. Technology that cost thousands is now just a few bucks or even free. Stuff that was impossible just a few years ago is now simple. That means anyone can start a business. And you can do it without working miserable 80-hour weeks or depleting your life savings. You can start it on the side while your day job provides all the cash flow you need. Forget about business plans, meetings, office space -- you don't need them.

    With its straightforward language and easy-is-better approach, Rework is the perfect playbook for anyone who's ever dreamed of doing it on their own. Hardcore entrepreneurs, small-business owners, people stuck in day jobs who want to get out, and artists who don't want to starve anymore will all find valuable inspiration and guidance in these pages. It's time to rework work.


    From the Hardcover edition.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine The founders of a cutting-edge software company show why traditional advice for start-up companies is mostly wrong. Rather than becoming bogged down by rigid operational models or marketing protocols, they urge executives to stay flexible in the way they organize work, internal communication, and interactions with the outside world. They say businesses are more effective when their people work naturally and intuitively, rather than blindly following the practices most MBAs recommend. The focus is on common-sense principles like staying intellectually nimble and making a 100% emotional commitment to a worthwhile product. With his natural enthusiasm and broad range of phrasing tools, narrator Mike Chamberlain adds tremendous appeal to this compact lesson on "keeping it simple." His excellent work magnifies the significance of the book's message. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
  • Chris Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of THE LONG TAIL and FREE

    "Jason Fried and David Hansson follow their own advice in REWORK, laying bare the surprising philosophies at the core of 37signals' success and inspiring us to put them into practice. There's no jargon or filler here just hundreds of brilliantly simple rules for success. Part entrepreneurial handbook for the twenty-first century, part manifesto for anyone wondering how work really works in the modern age, REWORK is required reading for anyone tired of business platitudes."

  • Tom Peters, New York Times bestselling author of IN SEARCH OF EXCELLENCE, THRIVING ON CHAOS and LEADERSHIP
    "House-husband, housewife, Fortune 500 CEO, cab driver, restaurateur, venture capitalist -- this is 'the book for you,' a book of true wisdom, business wisdom, life wisdom. The clarity, even genius, of this book actually brought me to near-tears on several occasions. Just bloody brilliant, that's what!"
  • Mark Cuban, co-founder of HDNet and Broadcast.com and owner of the Dallas Mavericks
    "If given a choice between investing in someone who has read REWORK or has an MBA, I'm investing in REWORK every time. This is a must read for every entrepreneur."
  • Scott Rosenberg, Co-Founder of Salon.com and author of DREAMING IN CODE and SAY EVERYTHING "Inspirational...REWORK is a minimalist manifesto that's profoundly practical. In a world where we all keep getting asked to do more with less, the authors show us how to do less and create more."
  • William C. Taylor, Founding Editor of Fast Company and coauthor of MAVERICKS AT WORK "The brilliance of REWORK is that it inspires you to rethink everything you thought you knew about strategy, customers, and getting things done. Read this provocative and instructive book--and then get busy reimagining what it means to lead, compete, and succeed."
