Rework by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson (Book Review)
Rework cuts through a number of accepted business practices and notions and, in their place, provides clear, untangled opinions about working better and faster. For example, in one passage, the authors contend that meetings and detailed procedures often waste time and don't yield that much value.
You may not agree with everything in Rework and possibly find parts of it reductive or even discomforting. But it's worth reading and, at its best, inspiring. It's also hard not to appreciate the authors' openness and willingness to reveal what's worked for them, personally and in their business.
