things you have suspected to be true but someone who makesmoney than you tells you is not true It s what you say to your friends over lunch It s support for being feisty in work and in life I m highlighting a sentence in almost every chapter that I want to remember Again not because I don t know it but because I don t want to forget it And I don t want to fool myself that it s not true just because another business book says the opposite This is one of those books where I agree with the general message but don t necessarily like the delivery Rework is a very slight read It feelslike a

don t necessarily like the delivery Rework is a very slight read It feelslike a series of blog posts than anything as formal as a novel The tone is that of a manifesto, and evidence is basically anecdotal The overall argument is that we should redo how we do work hence, rework Fried et al make an argument for leaner,flexible organizations, with few of the obvious structures of the average US company meetings, strategic plans, etc However, all of the content is highly skewed toward certain types of workplaces While Fried convinces me that all this stuff works for 37signals a small software company , he doesn t make any sort of real case for this being applicable to different types of organizations, especially those that have an in person element you can t open a retail building if you let everyone telecommute, for example or those that necessarily work on a larger scale.Overall a lot of preaching to the choir The feeling I got when I read the praise of the book in the first few pages was This book is over praised When I finished it, I still have the same feeling.Maybe it s just me, but I think that if you re gonna challenge the foundations of doing business, you gotta back it up with somethingthat That s how we did it, and it worked for us.The book makes a great case against all the elements of doing business planning, raising capital, meeting, communication, workplace, organizing, etc The feeling I got when I read the praise of the book in the first few pages was This book is over praised When I finished it, I still have the same feeling.Maybe it s just me, but I think that if you re gonna challenge the foundations of doing business, you gotta back it up with somethingthat That s how we did it, and it worked for us.The book makes a great case against all the elements of doing business planning, raising capital, meeting, communication, workplace, organizing, etc but it doesn t offer strong alternative and it certainly doesn t make a strong case for the alternative that it s offering Some of the criticism is just ridicules like Don t make long term plan and Stop calling yourself an entrepreneur, call yourself a starter Who cares A lot of the criticism is filled with that doesn t mean you should do away with this item, because it s still important If it s still important then why come out against it like it s some kind of a disease Other criticism falls under the category of a clever argument rather than a logical one, like Learning from mistakes is overrated , you should instead learn from your successes Well, what if I m just starting and all I have is my first failure Some ideas are just confusing On page 159 And of course, you want all that right away So you drop everything else you re working on and begin pursuing your latest, greatest idea.Bad move And on the same page So let your latest grand ideas cool off for a while first On page 271 Inspiration is like fresh fruit or milk It has an expiration date.If you want to do something, you ve got to do it now You can t put it on a shelf and wait two months to get around it eyes wide open of amazement The book offer some good idea when it comes to marketing and hiring andimportantly it offers you a chance to break out of business traditions that has been built over decades and now accepted as a given The point you should be taken from the book is that you should break free from all these rules and follow only the ones you feel that they make sense but it doesn t make it that clear.One very important thing is the book audience This book is NOT for people working in any industry Most of the ideas of this book aresuited for digital industries especially software rather thantransitional industries What is worse is that the book doesn t offer that distinction, it actually states very clearly that this book is for anyone who started a business, wants to start a business, or even working in a job they hate.To sum up, Follow your heart is good motivation to jump off the cliff of career security into the uncharted territories of starting a business, it might be helpful from time to time when making decisions but it s not a business strategy Don t read this book It is full of obvious stuff that I basically agree with but the writing style and argumentation are beyond annoying.The pattern is as follows Lot s of people say you can t do X But look at us We did X, so it is possible For me that reads as Lot s of people say you shouldn t base your life s path on winning the lottery But look at me I won the lottery, so it is possible.Spend your 10 euros on drugs or hookers or alcohol and have some fun in life. I deeply like such books A compilation of wisdom that are earned through years of direct experience The results of numerous try and error and what really works and what doesn t.

advice, with a clear and simple language.I recommend the book to everyone who is working nowespecially to those who like me are new to working and need to manage and run a business.I love the bookI highlighted on almost every pageread it if you want to work better and besuccessful This book is one continuous bookmark from start to end As others have said, nothing new here, or maybe it s effect
