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.

some would view this advice as a minimalist guide to business but I see it as a a guide for anyone who wants to build a business.
It's a great book that speaks a lot that I have in my mind for a long time. Wish it expends a little bit on how to get a business start up. This is good as a general guidelines.
Everybody , at one point or another has had to sit and listen to a big idea guy talk about big ideas, which are then handed off to a room full of people who have to go get it done.
This book is like riding around, in your car with that guy, for 2 1/2 hours, spare yourself.
At first I expected this book to be full of long drawn out ideas, but I quickly realized that it's short pithy suggestions almost brought up an indignation within me that caused me to think about the way I operate my business. It's a less is more, and figure it out as you go kinda book.

You can read this book very quickly and come away with new things every time. I've already read it twice and way with different ideas, that I put to work immediately
I have not read the print version but I like to have one. I like the audio format and how it was narrated. I've been listening to this book for more than 3 times within a month.
The story is straightforward and some parts are funny. It points out to practical and applicable examples.
