I'm not really one for business books, but I was really drawn to this one by some of the claims on the back.

The author's aren't really claiming anything revolutionary, but in the fine tradition of David Allen, Fred Brooks, and Strunk/White it succinctly lists principles to strive for and the rationale behind them. It also does it in a very straightforward (and slightly abrasive) manner.

I don't think the book is a bible, and I suspect that a successful company would find that a dogmatic adherence would eventually be counter-productive. I imagine that this book lays out a great mindset for someone starting out their own business, though.

As an engineer, this book's appeal is that it both lays out some insight into the _business_ of software development and why I should invest some care into that aspect of my employment. It also provides some business rationale for arguments I mostly just thought about in terms of maximizing productivity, which I suspect provides for better effective ammo when it is the business types I need to convince.

The recommendation to read Rework* came to me through the Entrepreneurs on Fire podcast. It had been mentioned on a number of occasions and I thought I should take a look. After reading it, I can understand why many are recommending it. In this book, the authors, Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson share the secrets of their successful company 37signals. I am very interested in how companies broke the code and became successful. I believe these lessons can be leveraged for my current work as well as non-profits I am engaged in. There are definitely lessons to be learned from this book. Read more ( )

This really was useful - helped me to rethink how I work, and look at what I do from another angle. The title is apt, as I definitely reworked my working life as a result. ( )

Quotations
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.
