The "work-from-home" phenomenon is thoroughly explored in this illuminating new audiobook from best-selling 37signals founders Fried and Hansson, who point to the surging trend of employees working from home (and anywhere else) and explain the challenges and unexpected benefits. Most important, they show why - with a few controversial exceptions such as Yahoo - more businesses will want to promote this new model of getting things done.

The content is really excellent - if you have any interest in business in the future this is a foundation to provide thoughts or give step-by-step guide
A great book for everyone from CEO to Intern, from entrepreneur to long term corporate

Bold is a radical, how-to guide for using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking, and crowd-powered tools to create extraordinary wealth while also positively impacting the lives of billions.

  • Creativity, Inc.

  • Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True Inspiration

Creativity, Inc. is a book for managers who want to lead their employees to new heights, a manual for anyone who strives for originality, and the first-ever, all-access trip into the nerve center of Pixar Animation - into the meetings, postmortems, and "Braintrust" sessions where some of the most successful films in history are made. It is, at heart, a book about how to build a creative culture - but it is also, as Pixar co-founder and president Ed Catmull writes, "an expression of the ideas that I believe make the best in us possible."

Ed Catmull is amazing, I didn't know anything about him until I listened to this and WOW - he's a serious heavy hitter & genius. Anyone interested in Creativity, at any level, should read/listen
The narrator, Peter, is really very excellent & captures the spirit of the book perfectly.
Highly recommend it & worth every penny for sure!!!!
