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.

    "Fantastic book! Very enjoyable listen"
    Any additional comments?

    I cannot recommend this highly enough to anyone who runs a business or even just who is interested int he revolution in the workplace. The only ways are dying, a new way of working is coming into play. Basically you don't have to be horrible to people. You can get better results by being nice. So many good but very simple ideas here. Narration was a little robotic at times but other than that it is a great read!

    Story
    "A quick and tremendously beneficial book."

    "Rework" turns a lot of business assumptions upside down, calls out bad ideas for what they are, and lays down some simple ways to get more useful work done. For new business owners as well as managers in existing organizations, this book is likely to be a catalyst for transformation and bold action. Best of all, it's short and highly readable, written in plain language without the fluff.

    "A new refreshing perspective to Work"

    I loved the idea of going back to basics. What is work and what its not
    Getting Growth its correct size rather than its over popular one.

    Story
    "An Unsubstantiated Bullet List"

    This book is the longest (and most indefensibly self-righteous) bullet list you'll ever read. You'll agree with some of the authors' points, disagree with others, but nothing is reasoned or substantiated enough to move a thoughtful reader from one side to the other.

    To anyone who might be tempted to regard the authors' success in business as evidence of the soundness of their ideas, consider that every business succeeds because of good practices and in spite of bad ones. This book does nothing to help anyone reasonably decide which are which.
