It Doesn’t Have to Be Crazy at Work is a direct successor to Rework, the instant best seller that showed listeners a new path to working effectively. Now Fried and Heinemeier Hansson have returned with a new strategy for the ideal company culture - what they call 'the calm company'. It is a direct attack on the chaos, anxiety and stress that plague millions of workplaces and billions of people working their day jobs. Working to breaking point with long hours, excessive business, and a lack of sleep have become a badge of honour for many people these days, when it should be a mark of stupidity.

I enjoyed all parts of this book. May be little more examples from Basecamp’s history would be welcome but the points came across well and well argued, defended.
I can recommend this book to everyone who tries to design a good human place to work for people.
