Book Review: Rework

Rework, authored by David Heinemeier Hansson(DHH) and Jason Fried, is a collection of business principles providing guidance at the individual as well as at the organizational level.

The book has lots of advice for startups, those with an idea and still reluctant to implement it, and managers and individual contributors. The advice in the book will help you no matter what stage of your career you are at. The book was published in 2010 and I wish I had read it immediately after its release.

The book covers advice on areas related to

  • progressing ahead with your ideas,
  • productivity,
  • managing the competition in the market.
  • product marketing,
  • evolving the product,
  • managing the customers,
  • hiring talent,
  • building the work environment and culture
  • response in times of issues

Each chapter has small sections with each section having some advice. It is a very easy-to-read and less verbose book and you will for sure enjoy reading it.

I would recommend this book especially for those in the world of software development and product management.
