Book Reviewed: Rework by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson

Rework by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson has been on Amazon’s top ten list for a couple months now and for good reason, it’s captivating, easy to read, engaging, and fun. However, I was disappointed with the lack of references. If the authors had included references to texts that back up many of their opinions (books like the Mythical Man-Month, Peopleware, etc…) then Rework could have more impact on corporate decision makers. Unfortunately, without the external references this book is easily passed of as highly opinionated and subjective.

    Thanks really good review. I find the authors, while very accomplished, very strongly opinionated. I guess it’s just their style but not sure I can buy-in because of the subjective nature.
    I really liked your review.

    Yeah, you’re right, it’s probably not their style. :)

    If they had provided more references, then they could have had a game changer – a book we could happily recommending to the boss.

    Thanks for the comment!
