In today's world, tools and technology have become easily accessible and much more affordable. Mysterious issues have now become simple, thereby paving the way for enthusiasts to start their own businesses. Anyone, today, can think of doing a full time or part-time business. Rework: Change The Way You Work Forever is an amazing book for all such people who dream of making it big on their own. The founders of the multi-million dollar software company 37signals, Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson, present a unique business book that teaches a new perspective on building successful businesses.
Rework: Change The Way You Work Forever explores a completely different reality of business. Conventionally, it is believed that the more you spend, the more you earn. However, the two authors of this book believe in the simpler-is-better philosophy and they follow the less, the better. Rejecting the epidemic of more, the book emphasizes on radical and simple approaches. The authors preach about doing away with the business plans and meetings, and doing less than the competition.
The authors have employed these philosophies in their business as well. From writing award-winning software for Twitter, to laying down the foundation of a full-fledged business, they have been successful with their innovative business principles. The thought provoking content of the book makes one challenge the very basics of running a business.
The book is a concise and short book. It shares the set of views that have worked for the authors. The chapters are short and to-the-point, revealing what the authors have learned throughout their journey and life while running a successful company. It is a valuable inspiration and guidance for small business owners, entrepreneurs, business professionals, and for all those who are stuck in day jobs craving to break their shells.
The authors have included examples to show how one can get rid of the traditional business notions. The book comprises several illustrations to punctuate each piece of advice. It offers answers to those who are looking for fresh perspectives on how to do things with less resources. The motto here is simple, less money, less people, less working hours, less meetings, and more focus on what really does matter.
