    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. ...

    A few decades from now after civilization has collapsed because everyone has quit their job to become an entrepreneur, historians will look back at books like these and wonder how we could have been so blind. But I'm not going to bash this book. I didn't find anything in it that I d...

    I appreciate anyone who's clever enough to suggest we entirely rethink how we conceive of work/business. Structurally, however, this book suffers from the same issues I've seen in a lot of blog-to-book deals: It reads like the authors basically cobbled together a bunch of blog posts an...

    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...

    Over all this book is a bunch of simple proverbs relating exactly the problems I will face my entire career as long as I stay in the field I'm in. I gave it 3 stars cause I expect to savor deeper phrases. But I still like his matter-of-fact ways. Here are a few take aways I have kept: ...

    Rework is quick and easy to read, which speaks to the philosophy the book is shilling: get things done -- which coincidentally speaks to me. Nothing in this book can be learned that can't be learned from the Signal vs. Noise blog from 37signals. That doesn't mean this book is unnece...

    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...

    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...

    I need to start with a disclaimer; I?m a 37signals fanatic. I spend at least a few hours each day using Basecamp and I use a family level Backpack account for personal use. Both save me time and help keep me organized at work and home. The products that 37signals turns out are simple...

    I read it in a two-hour flight. Don't let the nearly 300 pages fool you. It's a quick read. Really good and insightful. It's broken into chapters, each chapter has many tips. Each tip has a one page sketch for the tip which makes it super fun to read. Recommended if you're oper...

    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...

    Rework contradicts many of the standard business lessons found in other books, the book itself is written in a format of short powerful lessons and messages. I personally love the style of this writing and the overall structure with very high density of content. It can be a bit too muc...
