Book Summary – Rework
Jason Fried and David Heinemeir Hansson are the cofounders of 37 Signals. The company is renowned for their incredible products AND for being incredibly lean. In Rework they share what they have learned about building and running a business.
In this summary I’ve distilled down each of their points to a single sentence or two. However, nothing can replace actually picking up a copy of this book and reading it yourself. They do a wonderful job of providing examples, bringing the concepts to life and providing a motivation behind each of their points. In addition, just like their business, they keep things to a bare minimum. As a result, you can easily go through 10-20 pages of the book in a half hour and come away with some actionable information. While I hope that you enjoy the review, I hope even more that you pick up a copy of the book AND put their wisdom in to action.
