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.

A bright spotlight on the workplace nonsense that irritates productive people, sinks moral and drains profitability in businesses across the globe; REWORK gives simple, workable solutions. It is well worth the time of anyone who prefers to check off their To Do list than to politic. To leaders REWORK offers patterns to recognize common symptoms in time to defuse these predictable time bombs.
He trabajado por varios años en startups y empresas, y este libro describe a la perfección lo que verdaderamente importa. Habla bien de los muchos personajes que uno encuentra en el camino super héroes, trabajólicos, rockstars, etc.
Pienso que es preciso y muy útil.
Shatters alot of assumptions while providing real alternatives. One of the best books I have read in 2014 on business. No fluff just to the point.
Started pretty slow. It was hard at first. It came around after they stopped bragging about there own business. But in all worth it and built some knowledge.
Mostly it talk about Facts and Truth than Fairy Tale Story :P
* Policies are collective Punishment .... So Don't create a Policy.
* Be like a Drug Dealers.
* Do More with Less.
* Make Decisions instead of waiting for the best decision. That doesn't exist now.
* Inspiration is Perishable.
It really made to think ...... Good one.
Laugh , Think and then implement.
Valuable and Worthy to read. After completion , feeling like I learnt and knew some facts of business and life.

The advise given in this book may be good but it is a stream of consciousness shotgun that assumes that the listener has the instinct to know how to apply the hundreds of tidbits offered; which if they did; they would not need the book. Still OK brain food for some - I would have preferred 30 minutes of substance - I should have spent the credit elsewhere.
There's so much to discover just by listening.
I guess the authors of this book would be pleased if I call them arrogant. They talk about themselves with an certain superiority that made me want stop listening. But I did finish Rework and I wasn't too impressed. Most of this book wasn't new to me or would be to any modern entrepreneur. However, if you're a bit more conservative this could really be an eye opener. The authors do know what they are talking about and I didn't feel it was a waste of my time. It gave me a few good ideas and made me freshen up my memory.
I'm a bit hesitant but never say never.
- Don't wait for things to be perfect, when you have created something get it out there and improve things along the way.
- Create enough time to work uninterrupted during each working day, it makes you more
This book isn't bad, it's just not for me.
If you have common sense, then skip this book. I did not take one takeaway from this book. It is filled with absolutes such as, "Resumes are a new form of spam". Yes, people an lie on their resumes, but they are necessary unless the interviewer already knows the applicant. The book is filled with examples like these. The author had no golden gems. It is a book filled with random 3 minute examples of how to do things a little bit better.
