about this book

Rework shows a better, faster, easier way to succeed in business by outlining why plans are actually harmful, why outside investors are unnecessary, and why ignoring the competition is key. Ultimately, trailblazing entrepreneurs Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson, outline the ways in which business requires less than one would think, focusing on the hinderances of workaholic habits to paperwork and meetings and even having an office.

Encouraging students to stop talking and start working, Rework shows them how to be more productive, how to get exposure without breaking the bank and many other inspiring and provoking counterintuitive ideas. With its straightforward language and easy-is-better approach, this is the perfect playbook for anyone who’s ever dreamed of doing it on their own.

“If given a choice between investing in someone who has read REWORK or has an MBA,
I’m investing in REWORK every time. A must read for every entrepreneur.” -Mark Cuban, co-founder HDNet, owner of the Dallas Mavericks
