"Jason Fried and David Hansson follow their own advice in Rework, laying bare the surprising philosophies at the core of 37signals' success and inspiring us to put them into practice. There's no jargon or filler here just hundreds of brilliantly simple rules for success. Part entrepreneurial handbook for the twenty-first century, part manifesto for anyone wondering how work really works in the modern age, REWORK is required reading for anyone tired of business platitudes." --Chris Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of The Long Tail and Free "House-husband, housewife, Fortune 500 CEO, cab driver, restaurateur, venture capitalist -- this is 'the book for you, ' a book of true wisdom, business wisdom, life wisdom. The clarity, even genius, of this book actually brought me to near-tears on several occasions. Just bloody brilliant, that's what!" --Tom Peters, New York Times bestselling author of In Search of Excellence, Thriving On Chaos and Leadership "If given a choice between investing in someone who has read Rework or has an MBA, I'm investing in Rework every time. This is a must read for every entrepreneur." --Mark Cuban, co-founder of HDNet and Broadcast.com and owner of the Dallas Mavericks "Inspirational... Rework is a minimalist manifesto that's profoundly practical. In a world where we all keep getting asked to do more with less, the authors show us how to do less and create more." --Scott Rosenberg, Co-Founder of Salon.com and author of Dreaming In Code and Say Everything "The brilliance of Rework is that it inspires you to rethink everything you thought you knew about strategy, customers, and getting things done. Read this provocative and instructive book--and then get busy reimagining what it means to lead, compete, and succeed." --William C. Taylor, Founding Editor of Fast Company and coauthor of Mavericks At Work ..".a Webby manifesto for post-recession success." --Newsweek
