From the founders of the trailblazing software company 37signals, here is a different kind of business book – one that explores a new reality. Today, anyone can be in business. Tools that used to be out of reach are now easily accessible. Technology that cost thousands is now just a few bucks or even free. Stuff that was impossible just a few years ago is now simple. That means anyone can start a business. And you can do it without working miserable 80-hour weeks or depleting your life savings. You can start it on the side while your day job provides all the cash flow you need. Forget about business plans, meetings, office space – you don't need them.

With its straightforward language and easy-is-better approach, Rework is the perfect playbook for anyone who's ever dreamed of doing it on their own. Hardcore entrepreneurs, small-business owners, people stuck in day jobs who want to get out, and artists who don't want to starve anymore will all find valuable inspiration and guidance in these pages. It's time to rework work.

    The advice you are receiving is from the owner(?) of a 16 person software company, that gives away its secrets and gives it business software strange names like: Base Camp. That said, the author says they have over 3 million customers though my guess is they make their money from a support model and not the software itself. They refuse to add customer requested features and focus on keeping their software simple which sounds like they don't do a lot of development. I found much of the advice to be inconsistent, and not all that interesting.
