Weekend Inspiration Rework

Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson are the Founders of 37 Signals. They have something NEW to say.

 
Rework Weekend Inspiration Podcast on TotalPicture RadioRework

Welcome to our Weekend Inspiration podcast series with Peter Clayton Reporting. Today, we're featuring one of my favorite books, Rework, written by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson founders of 37 Signals - the company that makes some of my favorite productivity software including Basecamp and Highrise. Rework, written in 2010 and published by Crown Business, is a contrarian's guide to starting and running a successful small business. And yes, 37 Signals is a very successful small business

The back cover of the book states: ASAP is Poison, Underdo the Competition, Meetings are Toxic, Fire the Workaholics, Emulate Drug Dealers, Pick a Fight, Planning is Guessing and Inspiration is Perishable. Not exactly the kind of advice you'll find in most business books.

As David and Jason point out in the introduction, this book isn't based on academic theories, it's "based on our experience."
