Rework. Changing the way we work forever. Some books follow convention and impart wisdom which has been pretty much done to death anyway. This book is very different.
If you only believe in conventional thinking. My best advice would be for you to leave now. This book is about the “New Reality”. a new way of thinking that goes against the grain.
For best results, watch the video below first.
Rework – Why Is This Book So Controversial?
The book isn't based on theory, it's based on actual author's experience of starting, building and growing a business. Apparently ignoring most of the business “Wisdom” out there.
Most Worldly advice in the fields of personal development and business is administered by people who probably don't know much about personal development or business, but have read books on it and feel qualified to teach it.
I ask you. Would you accept an operation from a surgeon that has no qualifications except “he read a lot of books on the subject”. No, of course not.
Well, the advice we hear, even from well known “practitioners is not always 100% accurate. For example, “We learn by our mistakes”.
Here's a quote from the book:
What do you really learn from mistakes?. You might learn what not to do again, but how valuable is that?. You still don't know what you should do next. Contrast that with learning from your successes, Success gives you real ammunition.
Rework – Conventional Advice Goes Out The Window
Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson are Co authors of the book “Rework” and the owners of a company called “Basecamp” specialising in project management software and all other kinds of cool apps designed to improve your business.
That's about where normal ends and controversy starts, as their methods of running a successful business are far, far different from the norm. They don't even have a long term business plan.
This is a Multi Million Dollar company that has just 16 people working at it (including the two owners), they reject growth meetings, budgets, boards or directors, advertising and salespeople. They have been called irresponsible, reckless and unprofessional, yet their company continues to thrive.
The answer lies in this sentence. “Most conventional wisdom is either wrong, or seriously flawed”. The book is definitely an “eye opener” and if you are looking for some “fresh ideas” and “fresh thinking”.
They even tell you the four letter words you should never use in business (and NO, not those ones)..
Overall I think it's an “eye opening” good read, lot's to think about here and I think you'll enjoy seeing how two business anarchists managed to create something special from doing quite the opposite of what most people do.
