Description

Remote For too long our lives have been dominated by the ‘under one roof’ Industrial Revolution model of work. That era is now over. There is no longer a reason for the daily roll call, of the need to be seen with your butt on your seat in the office. The technology to work remotely and to avoid the daily grind of commuting and meetings has finally come of age, and bestselling authors Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson are the masters of making it work at tech company 37signals. Remote working is the future – and it is rushing towards us.

Remote: Office Not Required combines eye-opening ideas with entertaining narrative. It will convince you that working remotely increases productivity and innovation, and it will also teach you how to get it right – whether you are a manager, working solo or one of a team. Chapters include: ‘Talent isn’t bound by the hubs’, ‘It’s the technology, stupid’, ‘When to type, when to talk’, ‘Stop managing the chairs’ and ‘The virtual water cooler’.

Brilliantly simple and refreshingly illuminating this is a call to action to end the tyranny of being shackled to the office.

    It is easy to read and unbeleivable inspiring. No special vocabulary. it highlights everyday annoying little things that we all go trough and simply got used to, shows how we can get rid of it and have the most of our productivity in less working time. Strongly suggest to everyone whether you work in the office or not. Get a copy and enjoy it!
  • It's ok.

    I had greater expectations with this book. It is not bad and worth reading as "introduction level" if you are planning to start working remotely or already is (my case). However, the whole book could be boiled down to a comprehensive magazine article. It lacks material, basically, and you can read it in one afternoon. A useful afternoon, nevertheless.
  • Some good ideas

    Some interesting perspectives on the concept of teleworking. Whilst concise it does sometimes feel a little repetitive, but not so badly as to become annoying; it's a fun two hour read. I was certainly left feeling like the idea of moving cities/countries without moving jobs was a lot less crazy than I'd have thought previously.
