One of the best books, which cut the crap, and is to-the-point from Page-1. Shed the fat, and start lean, and just-do-it approach is the crux of this book. ( )

An easy and useful read. It doesn't apply to web application but to all of our life. Select to what we really want to do and execute it. Don't need much document, meeting and so on, just focus and do it! ( )

Great read: easy, intelligent and to the point. The authors confidently present their own ideas about building and promoting web-based applications, using examples from their own company and products. They practice what they preach and have created entire line of products by following their own advice. The approach to just getting things done and minimizing (and even removing) formal and time-consuming processes, meetings and specifications is refreshing. ( )

an easy and quickly digestible read.
stay flexible and lean to accommodate for change.
focus on what is important.
innovation is saying yes to what is important, and no to a thousand things that are unimportant. ( )

An inspiring read about how small companies such as 37signals can compete against larger companies on the web. By working as a small agile team they can produce small, straightforward apps faster than most software giants. This new approach to web applications is the key to surviving as a small upstart company on the web. ( )
