I hate business books. I don’t understand them. They never seem relevant to me. Talking about Sigma 6 training and total customer synchronicity make my eyes glaze over.
However, my head editor recommended the book Rework by Jason Fried and David Hansson. It’s striking how different it is than most business books. It doesn’t have the picture of a smiling CEO in a suit and it doesn’t promise to help you learn everything. The back cover says: “ASAP IS POISON – UNDERDO THE COMPETITION – MEETINGS ARE TOXIC.”
Why this book is relevant to non-business people:
-It provides good advice to help accomplish things more efficiently. (Workaholics are overrated.)
-It’s a good motivational tool to get your ideas flowing.
-It’s a super easy read.
The books chapters are short and easy to digest.
