Rework Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Rework shows you a better, faster, easier way to succeed in business. 

Most business books give you the same old advice: Write a business plan, study the competition, seek investors, yadda yadda. If you're looking for a book like that, put this one back on the shelf.

Read it and you'll know why plans are actually harmful, why you don't need outside investors, and why you're better off ignoring the competition. The truth is, you need less than you think. You don't need to be a workaholic. You don't need to staff up. You don't need to waste time on paperwork or meetings. You don't even need an office. Those are all just excuses. 

What you really need to do is stop talking and start working. This book shows you the way. You'll learn how to be more productive, how to get exposure without breaking the bank, and tons more counterintuitive ideas that will inspire and provoke you.

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 they hate, victims of "downsizing," and artists who don’t want to starve anymore will all find valuable guidance in these pages.

    Truly an amazing book! Must read if you're looking for inspiration :)
  • Different Way of Looking at Business and Life

    By Horace iPad
    I like the way the authors' challenge the status quo of being traditional. We live in a much different society today. You don't need to have 20 people to start a business anymore. Technology has taken care alot of things for the "STARTER" (not entrepreneur) We should be thankful and embrace the new world of business we live in because it's only going to get better.
  • Easy read with great value!

    I read some of the reviews here and I can picture anyone who doesn't give this book a five star is probably older and at the end of their career. If you dont think this book is great after reading it, you have issues. Everything mentioned in this book is what makes companies successful now a days. Take a look at Microsoft, their old ways keep them in the same old crappy boat yet companies with the rework model like 37signals, MailChimp, Apple, Facebook, Google and many other are at the top of their game. This book is worth every penny. Thanks 37signals, great book.
  • Good ideas, but little real life detail

    By DJRHA
    I don't know that I object to any of the assertions in this book, but that's all they are - assertions. There is almost nothing backing them up. No data. Not even specific stories from the company. That's what disappointed me most. There is a real unique story and lessons in what they achieved, but not enough of that comes through here for me to really learn from that.
