Book Cover: Rework

I love this book. I've had it for years and I keep going back to it. Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson are known for their company 37 Signals and creating Basecamp, among other products.

This is much better than a business book. It's not even really a "business book" at all, it's more of a reminder that we do what we do for reasons other than money. For me, it's an inspiration to cut out the fluff and just solve people's problems.

It's not necessary to read in order from beginning-to-end, though please don't skip the intro. Skip around as you please. There are so many great nuggets in Rework that you can't help but find one if you open at random. I always love this one: "Enough with Entrepreneurs. Let's retire the term 'entrepreneur.' It's old and outdated."

The graphics for each chapter are really easy on the eyes, too.
