    Good standard small business advice. Notes: Prioritize visually. Make tiny decisions. Do less. One downing not one updoing. Don't be a whore to our customers. build anaudeience Hold meetings at site of problem, not in meeting room. Invite as few as possible. Divide pr...

    This is another book I can't put down. Nothing in this book is earth-shattering or amazing. It's the little things you have suspected to be true - but someone who makes more money than you tells you is not true. It's what you say to your friends over lunch. It's support for being feist...

    The feeling I got when I read the praise of the book in the first few pages was "This book is over-praised". When I finished it, I still have the same feeling. Maybe it's just me, but I think that if you're gonna challenge the foundations of doing business, you gotta back it up with s...

    Don't read this book. It is full of obvious stuff that I basically agree with but the writing style and argumentation are beyond annoying. The pattern is as follows: "Lot's of people say you can't do X. But look at us! We did X, so it is possible". For me that reads as: "Lot's of pe...

    I deeply like such books. A compilation of wisdom that are earned through years of direct experience. The results of numerous try and error and what really works and what doesn't. ...

    This is one of those books where I agree with the general message but don't necessarily like the delivery. Rework is a very slight read. It feels more like a series of blog posts than anything as formal as a novel. The tone is that of a manifesto, and evidence is basically anecdotal. ...

    Don't read this book. It is full of obvious stuff that I basically agree with but the writing style and argumentation are beyond annoying. The pattern is as follows: "Lot's of people say you can't do X. But look at us! We did X, so it is possible". For me that reads as: "Lot's of pe...

    This is one of those books where I agree with the general message but don't necessarily like the delivery. Rework is a very slight read. It feels more like a series of blog posts than anything as formal as a novel. The tone is that of a manifesto, and evidence is basically anecdotal. ...

    I don't know why, but most organizational studies books are either 1) weird and stuffy, or 2) kind of like Epcot Center, trying a little too hard, maybe, but not horrible. Rework is a better organizational studies book than most. The authors tantalize the reader toward jumping on their...

    Rework is an example of the business-inspirational genre by the founders of 37Signals, a software company. I like 37Signals because they?re straightforward, even pithy, and because founder Jason Fried has some right-on things to say about business culture, such as the stupidity of in...
