Descripción del producto
"An urgent conversation to have."--Wall Street Journal
"Each [chapter is] packed with a punch that seems both profound and practical--profound for how clear and different they tend to be from most accepted business wisdom, and practical because almost everything they describe is immediately applicable."--800-CEO-READ
"In short, jargon-free chapters, the authors challenge the way many of today's businesses are run."--Financial Times
Biografía del autor
JASON FRIED is the cofounder and CEO of Basecamp. He started the company back in 1999 and has been running the show ever since. Along with David, he wrote Getting Real, REWORK, and REMOTE. When it comes to business, he thinks things are simple until you make them complicated. And when it comes to life, we're all just trying to figure it out as we go.
DAVID HEINEMEIER HANSSON is the cofounder of Basecamp and the New York Times bestselling coauthor of REWORK and REMOTE. He's also the creator of the software toolkit Ruby on Rails, which has been used to launch and power Twitter, Shopify, GitHub, Airbnb, Square, and over a million other web applications. Originally from Denmark, he moved to Chicago in 2005 and now divides his time between the US and Spain with his wife and two sons. In his spare time, he enjoys 200-mph race cars in international competition, taking cliché pictures of sunsets and kids, and ranting far too much on Twitter.

Like Rework, this book provides fresh perspective on running a business. Many of the topics are common sense in hindsight, yet rarely seen in businesses focusing exclusively on profits. A few chapters are truly insightful and have stuck with me, particularly those relating to pricing products. The chapter on employee benefits made me want to work at Basecamp, which was perhaps the point.
Unlike Rework, however, this book felt long-winded in places. A few of the chapters felt light on content and stretched to fill the word count. It's possible my opinion is coloured by Rework, where common ground is covered. Perhaps this left me thinking some chapters are "obvious", when fresh readers would find all of it insightful.
I'm definitely a fan of the Basecamp guys and will no doubt buy their next book, should they write one. If you've read none of their previous work, definitely give this a read and pick up Rework too. If more businesses were run this way, the world would be a much better place.
I enjoyed the style, the chapters breeze along, there is nothing that reinvents the wheel but if you can implement a handful of the strategies in this book into your working life you will be all the better for it, from both a mental health and productivity perspective.
Overall a very good read, there are more technically challenging books with regards to productivity and goal orientation out there such as Rework, and at times it can seem like the author is self promoting Basecamp as an entirely new business model. However, take it for what it is, a look at the business model that Basecamp has adopted and try to implement some of that into your own business or workday.
It’s good to read business advice from successful business people that is so calm and takes a different line from almost any other I’ve read. Assuming working for Basecamp really is as good as the picture the authors paint then anyone working there is pretty lucky.
A few stylistic quibbles aside this is a great enjoyable read. The only bit which jars for Europeans is flagging 3 weeks paid leave as something special - everyone I know gets at least 5 (excluding public holidays which are on top). But this is one detail in a book full showing a really pleasant attitude to work and business.
If you happen to work for an awful employer I’m not sure if this book will irritate or inspire though!
Sometimes it's insightful sometimes too brief and superficial to be helpful. For example the section on hiring which basically boils down to 'we hire great people'.
If you have read Rework or the authors online writing much of it will be familiar.
If you haven't, go and buy a copy of Rework rather than this book.
I would recommend every book so far from these guys, keep up the good work!
