    The message is important: a company has the agency to dismiss most business practices and advice ? growth at all costs, change for change's sake, working its staff to the bone ? and still thrive. I applaud their consistency, year after year, in pointing at their own success as proo...

    Jason fried and DHH have done a brilliant job with this book. It?s thought provoking and there are some really useful bit of advice. I?m certain that it?ll have a massive impact on how we work, just as rework, and remote did. Anyone who cares about achieving a sensible work life ...

    Fried and DHH are once again offering a clarion call from The Future; ignore it at your peril. This is essential reading if you've ever thought that the millenial badge of honor, being busy beyond belief, may actually be a foolish road to ruin. If you're wise enough to know that yo...

    This is a ridiculously quick read full of insights and gems. There's so much space on the pages, though, that you'll feel like you're just reading a collection of tweets from the authors rather than an actual book. I'm totally on board with everything these Basecamp leaders advocate...

    I started this on a plane and finished it over salt-roasted chicken with celery root, leeks, and ham chips. Recommend by coworkers, especially @bill?s knh, I found that about 30% of this applies to my company. The fact is that our problems don?t match the ones these folks have ...

    This is an easy read with nuggets of advice on how to establish a calm organisation or be calm in the office through reasonable work practices and through curbing your ambition. It is common sense; implementing the authors' advice is likely going to be more successful at smaller organi...

    Alternative title: 'Come work at Basecamp!' There's something weird about modern work culture, things our grandfathers have fought and died for, like the 40 hour work-week, are being unrolled, not directly by your mean bosses, but by neoliberalism/late stage capitalism's magic trick...

    The praise of calm, commited, well-formulated, thought-through work environment. An antithesis to war metaphors in business literature and the talk about the need to grow endlessly (like The Hard Thing About Hard Things: Building a Business When There Are No Easy Answers) or the urge...

    I've got mixed feelings on this one. After reading remote and rework, this one feels kinda "cheap", in the sense that is a 18$ book (pre-order, now is 25$) that you read in a couple of days. Don't get me wrong, I like the content, but, maybe I've just been following DHH and his "teac...

    Bam! Bam! Bam! This book shoots advice from the third gen of the way of working in software development. Will everything from this book be there in the future? No. Will everything here work for you? No. Are some things only possible if you are already highly profitable and don't have e...

    Yet another reference book from Basecamp for the likes of me in software development industry. Just like 'Rework' and 'Remote' this book points to issues we feel that some things are wrong with but don't have the courage to put into words because of the way things 'are' in the business...

    Nice. It?s good to read business advice from successful business people that is so calm and takes a different line from almost any other I?ve read. Assuming working for Basecamp really is as good as the picture the authors paint then anyone working there is pretty lucky. A f...

    The premise of the book is wonderful: we chase growth at all cost and the human cost of that is real. However, I can't shake some feeling of arrogance that permeates the book. Points are mostly anecdotal and all the examples of practised 'calm' are from their own company or individ...

    It's a great book not as a book per se, but as a proof that things can be different then we are made to believe. It's like a fairy tale that takes you in a different time and place. It shows you some things can work in the real world if you think about others as people, not as a way to...

    What a great book! The best part of this book is that there's nothing so out of this world there, they are just talking about what we should be doing. Hey, it's true, it doesn't have to be crazy at work. We can still do our best and deliver an amazing product without making ourselve...

    I enjoyed all Jason's books and only hope more companies will embrace a calm way of working. ?A great work ethic isn?t about working whenever you?re called upon. It?s about doing what you say you?re going to do, putting in a fair day?s work, respecting the work, respect...
