Food For Thought #7 – FORGET THE RULES – “REWORK”

Rework by Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson

Why back cover of a book?  – I just finished reading REWORK by Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson of 37signals.
Not only is this book bursting with cool information, it correspondingly tackles all basic topics associated with building a business. Plus, it is SIMPLY written – it is fun, interesting, stimulating, engaging and exemplifies exactly the message the Communication Hack blog is trying to share.

FORGET THE RULES! FORGET ABOUT BEING “PROFESSIONAL”!
IF YOU HAVE AN IDEA AND ARE INSPIRED TODAY…….. DO IT TODAY!!

With loads of advice opposing to the standard business models, it calls for some thought-provoking debates. This book can remove all the uptight emotions and overthinking tactics that can sometimes lead entrepreneurs to feel a lack of inspiration. This book may just drive you to let go of standard thinking and start becoming a free thinking machine. Start believing in yourself!
