    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.

    What did you like best about Rework? What did you like least?

    The part about doing something original rather than copying although not in and of itself an original thoughts is true as so many online fall into the trap of wasting time on affiliate marketing and similar pursuits. Also the comment that copying is better than doing nothing at least its the start of an education. Thats true too. What I dont like is the fact it seems like a preach on how the world works in business when in fact the whole story is so patently 37 signals its not a joke. I mean there is no right solution for every business. Every business is different and to assume there is one way is stupid. I mean to say advertising doesnt work is bull. It is the best option for many businesses. Just because blogging worked for you doesnt mean thats what will work in every business. It wont work for say a company that sells nuts and bolts online. Why? Cause its boring as shi%. 37 signals happens to be in productivity which is a market that interests many people online. So one size definatel does not fit all. Also to say dont get funding is also very very naive. Sure if you can start a web app with a few people and you happen to be lucky enough to have money to out in great. But if you need to grow your business and you have traction but not enough without resources ie staff upfront because your business is capital intensive and needs to get to a certain critical mass to make it work then yes go and get funding. Of course you should not go out and get funding if you dont need it...der fred.
