Why read it?

2 authors picked Rework as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

I love Rework because it’s a business book that is straightforward in its language and approach.

It’s economical with its page count and once it makes a point it moves on. And there are a ton of great points in this book. 37 signals has always had a unique approach to work and managing their company. While the book has an entrepreneurial mindset in its approach, the lessons are applicable to any leader.

If you’re the type of person that isn’t happy with the “standard” approach to how things are done, this book is for you.

I like Rework because it describes how common sense and entrepreneurship are inextricably linked. No hype, no jargon, the book is a collection of simple descriptions of how to deal with the realities of being an entrepreneur. The book’s chapters are two or three pages long and each one is a gem of practical insight from two entrepreneurs who started 37signals and Campfire on their own, step by step. This is very easy reading, yet every page has at least one useful insight that any entrepreneur can immediately put to use.
