Audible Editor Reviews

"Rework takes aim at marketing, hiring, and other disciplines associated with building a business as if they were bottles lined up against a wall. Then it blows them away...Fried and Hansson are the Henry David Thoreaus of entrepreneurship." (Leigh Buchanan, Inc. Magazine)
"Rework is a Webby manifesto for post-recession success. Forget about strategic planning, [the authors] advise. And ignore your competition - unless you feel like picking a public fight." (Nick Summers, Newsweek)
"I want to buy a copy for everyone I know either to validate their current business practices or to expose them to alternative ways of doing things." (Alexis Rodich, Washington Post)

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Perfect-Work"
    Would you listen to Rework again? Why?

    One of the best I've read. Since the book is all about business startup the content is crisp and the way author explained is outstanding. This is a book about how to start and continue a small business and the book is being experimental. Using all the available technology, tools and all possible resources, you can reduce the work hours for the same productivity. Never hire unless it is required, work from anywhere and the bi-products idea is great. One of my best lines in the book is "be influenced but don’t steal, be remarkable". This book inspires to rework/startover on our passion. Cheers!

    "Simple fast and clear"

    Simple idea
    Fast understanding
    Clear learning

    A book doesn't have to be big or long to be a good book and that's the proof of it.

    "Great content, average performance"

    Really liked this modern take on how to run and be a small business. Performance could have been better. Narrator annoyed me a bit somehow.

    "A must-listen for anyone"

    I put my headphones on and listened to this audio book in one go. This book is an amazing source of inspiration, invaluable tips, and priceless advice anyone could benefit in any position. You don't have to be an entrepreneur only to make use of this book, you could have your 9-5 job and use the techniques in this book to get better, more efficient, and more mature at what you do.
    Kudos to the authors... Great great job...

    "Expected much more"

    A few interesting thoughts but nothing very insightful. Just a bunch of blog posts strung together to sound like a book.

    "Action Provoking"

    Although the audio is a bit mundane, you can easily get over it due to the content provided. This book is for someone whom is in business, has started a business or may be on the fence. Listen, learn and proceed.

    "Not so interesting "

    This is a good book, but most of the book is common sense. I expected more about entrepreneurship. .

    "A great read after Remote"

    I read Remote by 37 signals and it was an inspirational book that convinced me to check out Rework as well.

    Great work, actionable items and practical examples for self-motivation and management.
