Book Overview

In this timely manifesto, the authors of the New York Times bestseller Rework broadly reject the prevailing notion that long hours, aggressive hustle, and whatever it takes are required to run a successful business today.

In Rework, Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson introduced a new path to working effectively. Now, they build on their message with a bold, iconoclastic strategy for creating the ideal company culture--what they call the calm company. Their approach directly attack the chaos, anxiety, and stress that plagues millions of workplaces and hampers billions of workers every day.

Long hours, an excessive workload, and a lack of sleep have become a badge of honor for modern professionals. But it should be a mark of stupidity, the authors argue. Sadly, this isn't just a problem for large organizations--individuals, contractors, and solopreneurs are burning themselves out the same way. The answer to better productivity isn't more hours--it's less waste and fewer things that induce distraction and persistent stress.

It's time to stop celebrating Crazy, and start celebrating Calm, Fried and Hansson assert.

   Good point of view
I really enjoyed this book ''. It takes a whole different approach to business from what we have come to accept in corporate America.
   Had high hopes
After their first two, my hopes were probably too high for this book. It does give good insight and I have received some useful advice on approaching employee benefits and bonuses. It reads more like a blog tho and internal formatting is interesting. The paragraphs are double-spaced. Some famous quotes from random people are thrown in there, which is common in all books, but I had difficulty interpreting them in the context of the chapters or stories. I've gotten bored pretty quickly ''. I wish I could say more.
   Lots of wisdom, bite-sized chapters
The things they talk about sound like common sense, but are rarely found in modern workplaces.
   I've got mixed feelings on this one.
After reading remote and rework, this one feels kind of cheap, in the sense that it doesn't really teach me anything, although the book feels nice and classy once you remove the outside cover.
