    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.

    Paul says: "Simple, Quick, Timely, Contrarian Advice"
    "Thought provoking, ever after Getting Real"
    Overall

    Even though I read Getting Real, a previous book by David and Jason, some 4 times, Rework is definitely thought provoking and inspiring. I do not agree on all topics, and some of them apply only to software industry, but the time definitely has come to "rework work". Or at least re-think what is possible with modern technology, and why people would even care about some mainstream ideas and ways of doing business originating in 18th century.

    What is especially valuable is that this book is written from personal experience and perspective. If you ever thought of starting a company, Rework will be useful for you.

    In this encore to his classic 1987 unauthorized biography of Steve Jobs (Steve Jobs: The Journey is the Reward), Jeffrey Young examines Jobs' remarkable resurgence, one of the most amazing business comeback stories in years.

    Blair says: "Steve Jobs History painted with a wide brush"
    "I personally enjoyed it"
    Overall

    I personally enjoyed it. It offers a perspective that helps listener to understand complex personality of one of the most remarkable people (in the Western society anyway) of our time.

    A smart and funny book by a prominent Harvard psychologist, which uses groundbreaking research and (often hilarious) anecdotes to show us why we're so lousy at predicting what will make us happy, and what we can do about it.

    Terril Lowe says: "Great Book!"
    "A very interesting book about nature of happiness"
    Overall

    A very interesting book that explains why people may feel happy or unhappy. I liked examples author uses to explain each of his points, especially cognitive biases. Frankly, after hearing this certain thing that worried me went away, because now I understand what goes on "under the covers" in my brain. To me, it was totally worth time & money, and deserves 5 stars.

    "A classic"
    Overall

    I've read this book before, but it was worth listening again. A classic.

    The election of Barack Obama as president of the United States was surely one of the least likely and most riveting stories of our time. But all of us - and especially businesspeople - have much to learn from the way Obama won his victory. This brief, important book spells out the lessons of the campaign and illustrates them with examples of successful companies that have used similar strategies and tactics.

    Michael says: "Worth the time (and money)"

    Overall

    Whether you like Mr. Obama or not,this book explains modern age techniques that got him into president seat. Other people can apply them beyond business: to their personal development, too.
