    The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement by Eliyahu M. Goldratt (Sandydog1)
    Sandydog1: Both emphasize getting back to basics and cutting waste. Both are very entertaining.

    Leadership Is an Art by Max De Pree (sr109)
    sr109: I read both books a few months apart, and immediately thought of the similarities between them.

I picked this book up from Mark Cuban's "5 best business books." It was an easy, quick read. It definitely is a light book. Lots of graphics, and lots of white space...no Fountainhead or Drucker tome here. I don't usually need inspiration from business books, and instead am looking for new ideas, practices, habits, etc. There was no great enlightenment here, but there were enough good and simple reminders. I vacillated between 3-4 stars, because it's not a bad book...just a little simplistic. Not bad. ( )

A short book with short chapters meant to get you thinking differently about work.

Much of what the book covers goes against the “common” advice out there.

It gets you thinking (sometimes differently) and that’s one thing a good book is all about.

David Heinemeir Hansson has recently been featured on two Tim Ferris podcasts – two excellent episodes. ( )

Este é um clássico sobre o tema do trabalho e do digital.
Já o li há um tempo, mas fiquei com a certeza de conter de uma forma muito desassombrada algumas dicas de como conduzir o trabalho e evitar perdas de tempo ou de foco em aspectos laterais.

De leitura fácil e rápida, vale bem a pena o esforço (existe uma versão em Português e também está disponível o original na Web,no site da 37signals
Os autores do livro tem a sua posição reforçada pelo êxito e prática que seguem nas suas vidas e não apenas nas suas palavras,

Lá, entre outras, existem bastantes críticas sobre o desperdício de tempo, a inutilidade das reuniões (esta gosto, particularmente) e sobre como as empresas pequenas pode ser boas

Uma leitura fresca, sem dúvida.
Faz parte do canone dos empreendedores ( )

Another business book describing how we can work better. it is mostly harmless ( )

This is a great book for anyone who either owns, or is contemplating starting, a business. The authors founded 37Signals, a Chicago-based software development firm that created the website development software Ruby On Rails and the popular Highrise contact management program -- among others. The book expresses their successful business development philosophy which distills down to: (1) create a product/service that you would like to use (because it solves a problem you have experienced) (2) start it now (3) learn from your successes (as opposed to other people's failures) and (4) continuously rework your business in response to market signals to make it better.
Along the way, they provide invaluable advice designed to disabuse people from commonly accepted business practices that they have found to be counter-productive. These include everything from building extensive 'mission statements' to seeking outside investment capital and working from written business plans. (As you can see, Rework is no ordinary business book!)
The authors are creative minimalists who believe in distilling and developing the core of your business idea and not encumbering it with non-essential frills (see Chapters "Be a Curator" and "Throw Less at the Problem." They also believe in a new entrepreneurial work ethic involving a 10- to 40-hour
work week.
They practice what they preach. Rework, they write, began as a 52,000 word book which they then edited down to 26,000 words. Consequently, the book provides a quick, entertaining, thought-provoking read with pages peppered with insightful quotes and great, game-changing ideas.
Highly recommended. ( )

First words
We have something new to say about building, running, and growing (or not growing) a business.
사람들은 결과물이 만들어지는 과정에 호기심이 많다. 이것이 공장 견학이나 영화의 제작 후기가 인기 잇는 이유다. 사람들은 무대를 설치하고 캐스팅이 이루어지는 과정을 알고 싶어한다. 남들이 결정을 내리는 이유와 과정을 알고 싶어한다.
사람들에게 커튼 안쪽을 공개하면 관계가 변한다. 사람들이 당신을 얼굴 없는 회사가 아니라 같은 인간으로 보게 되면서 동질감이 싹튼다. 사람들이 당신이 파는 제품이나 서비스에 배인 땀과 노력을 보게 된다. 당신이 하는 일을 더 깊이 이해하고 존중하게 된다.
