Review

Praise for the authors' first book "Rework"
""Rework" is brilliant...It's fantastic. If you are starting a business, or thinking about starting a business, or running a business, or breathing air, this is a book you should read." --Brad Field, "MIT Technology Review"
""Rework" takes aim at marketing, hiring, and other disciplines associated with building a business as if they were bottles lined up against a wall. Then it blows them away...Fried and Hansson are the Henry David Thoreaus of entrepreneurship." --Leigh Buchanan, "Inc. Magazine"
""Rework" is a Webby manifesto for post-recession success. Forget about strategic planning, [the authors] advise. And ignore your competition--unless you feel like picking a public fight." --Nick Summers, "Newsweek"
"I want to buy a copy for everyone I know either to validate their current business practices or to expose them to alternative ways of doing things." --Alexis Rodich, "Washington Post"
"This book is short, fast, sharp and ready to make a difference. It takes no prisoners, spares no quarter and gives you no place to hide, all at the same time...Stop reading the review...Buy the book"--Seth Godin, Guest Review, Amazon
"Read this book multiple times to help give you the courage you need to get out there and make something great." -- Tony Hsieh, CEO, Zappos.com
"Stripped of all big words and fancy strategies, "Rework"'s collection of short, inspiring essays advocates a 'less is more' approach to starting your own business, handing out tips on increasing productivity and debunking myths in business. And based on the success of 37Signals, it looks like their advice is worth holding onto." --Sheryl Sulistiawan, "Fast Company"
"An "Elements of Style" for building profitable businesses in a web-savvy world. Each chapter is two to five pages long and delivers [the authors'] tactics and principles fat-free, without fluff." --Tim Ferriss, Fourhourworkweek.com
"Shinese

""Remote" is the book that 21st century business leaders have been waiting for: a paradigm-smashing, compulsively readable case for a radically remote workplace. If you're intrigued by extreme teleworking, but have your doubts, "Remote "is the place to address them. Not a day goes by that I don't think about, talk about, and actually apply the insights in this game-changing book."
--Susan Cain, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Quiet: The Power of""Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking"
" "
"What you'll find in "Remote "is profound advice from guys who've succeeded in the virtual workforce arena. This is a manifesto for discarding stifling location- and time-based organizational habits in favor of best work practices for our brave new virtual and global world. If your organization entrusts you with the responsibility to get things done, this is a must-read."
--David Allen, internationally best-selling author of "Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity
"
"Remote is the way I work and live. Now I know why. If you work in an office, you need to read this remarkable book, and change your life."
--Richard Florida, author of the national bestseller "The Rise of the Creative Class: And How It's Transforming Work, Leisure, Community and Everyday Life"
" "
"In the near future, everyone will work remotely, including those sitting across from you. You'll need this farsighted book to prepare for this inversion."
--Kevin Kelly, Senior Maverick for "Wired "Magazine and author of "What Technology Wants"
" "
"Leave your office at the office. Lose the soul-sapping commutes. Jettison the workplace veal chambers and banish cookie-cutter corporate culture. Smart, convincing and prescriptive, "Remote "offers a radically more productive and satisfying office-less future, better for all (well, except commercial landlords)."
--Adam L. Penenberg, author of "Viral Loop: From Facebook to Twitter, How Today's Smartest Busin

"The authors review the pros and cons of telecommuting, suggest ideas to enhance efficiency, and tools to optimize output and build a collaborative spirit....easy to digest [and] useful ideas that are worth checking out."
--Success Magazine
"Presents powerful arguments...the book is an eye opener to the endless benefits that come with remote work...a worthwhile investment of your times and money."
--Tech Vibes

--Adam L. Penenberg, author of "Viral Loop: From Facebook to Twitter, How Today's Smartest Businesses Grow Themselves"
"Fried and Hansson show how remote working sets people free--free from drudgery and free to unleash unprecedented creativity and productivity. This workday disruption is necessary if we want to use our new digital tools to full effect. The first gift copy I buy will be for my boss!"
--James McQuivey, PhD, VP and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, and author of "Digital Disruption: Unleashing the Next Wave of Innovation"
"Just like we couldn't imagine a cell phone smaller than a toaster in the 1970's, some companies still believe that they can't get great performance from their employees unless they show up at an office. Virtual work is the wave of the future, and Jason and David do a brilliant job of teaching best practices for both employees and employers."
--Pamela Slim, author of "Escape from Cubicle Nation"
" "
"Jason and David convincingly argue the merits of remote work, both from the perspective of manager and of worker. For the former, working remotely means more productive teams. For the latter, there is the ultimate luxury: control over one's environment. Remote work gives you the power to craft your own life, and this book is a roadmap to get that."
--Penelope Trunk, author of "Brazen Careerist: The New Rules for Success"
"The decentralization of the workplace is no longer fodder for futurists, it's an everyday reality. "Remote" is an insight-packed playbook for thriving in the coming decade and beyond."
--Todd Henry, author of "The Accidental Creative: How to Be Brilliant at a Moment's Notice"
" "
""Remote" shows you how to remove the final barrier to doing the work you were meant to do, with the people you were meant to do it with, in the most rewarding and profitable way possible--this book is your ticket to real freedom!"
--John Jantsch, author of "Duct Tape Marketing: The World's Most Practical Small Business Marketing Guide"
