It was great to here about the unique and wonderful world of Basecamp again. I enjoyed it but was waiting for a reason why it wasn’t just a revision of the Rework book, but it never came. Regardless, it’s always valuable to revisit and challenge your thinking.

Loved the research based insights, skilfully and refreshingly communicated by a humble and generous professional and everyday human like the rest of us. It will challenge your thinking - particularly if you're a bit of perfectionist but also provides practical advice leaving you inspired about the future. Took me a few chapters to really get into it - fair few examples based on being a 'mom' - but will be playing it again for sure. Highly recommend it.

Brilliant, Comprehensive, Insightful, Practical real world advice. Refreshingly humble - it's about the compelling logic rather than just about the author. You can't beat books read by the Author to capture the full meaning and emphasis.
If you only have time to consume two books - consume this one twice! It's so rich with quality content - you'll enjoy the second sitting as much as the first.
