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.

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.
You must read or listen to this book if you have or are thinking about starting a small business. We are now changing how we do a few things that we didn't even think about or thought about wrong in the past.
There is a lot of great advice and insight in here but not a lot of storytelling. I found myself nodding my head in agreement and laughing with contempt all within the same paragraph. At times it seemed that there was more of a focus on trying to upset an industry notion or a term than the reason behind it. Still a great thought provoking read.
Very negative without much good advice all most all subjectively given from a "hey look how great I am " point of view. Auhor needs to take his own advice and learn how to write.

Great content simplified. I would say the only addition I would make is perhaps some interactive tools. However, these guys seem to know their niche and as a result they may be resolved to not make any additions at this time and that is ok.
Great book, could have used less of plugging there own company However it made the examples better, knowing that they were learned through experience. Overall I liked it.
I ran a business with partners for many years who did everything opposite that says this book and it really killed our culture and our productivity and just Nephi not enjoyable as much as it could've been. We could've done things much greater if we had listened to some of the lessons in this book.
