Book Reco - Rework by Jason Fried & David Hansson
20th March 2014

reworkFinally managed to get my hands on this book which was recommended by so many people. And it was worth the effort.All business people wish for a no nonsense, zero jargon, common sense business book and this it it!  Created by the folks at 37 signals which is a successful online software company, it is full of direct and useful advise.

Although the book is centred around product development advise, it can be very useful for non-product or service businesses too. What I like is the completely irreverent way at looking at traditional ideas and values. For example here are a few excerpts

 ' Lets retire the term Entrepreneur. It's outdated and loaded with baggage. It smells like a members-only club'

'Workaholics aren't heroes. They don?t save the day, they just use it up. The real hero is already home because she figured out a faster way to get things done.'

'Unless you are a fortune teller, long-term business planning is a fantasy. There are just too mayn factors that are out of your hands?'

And it goes on with a lot of such direct and no-nonsense advice.

This book struck a chord with me as a business person looking for simple direct advise for my everyday issues. I don't have time for convulted theories and fancy acronyms and this book does not give any. Its simple its direct and it hates ?asap? i.e. jargon.

A must read in the same league as 'Good to great', 'E-myth revisited' and '4 hour work week'.

Go get it!
