Like Gary’s book, 37signals’ book also looks stunning without the jacket.
Following our review of Gary Vaynerchuk’s book Crush It!, my colleague Joe and I rushed to get a copy of 37signals’ latest book REWORK. It’s based on a true story—37signals’ experiences in making and growing a business, being creative all the way. The company created the popular web application Basecamp. I’m a fan of their product Backpack. REWORK offers insightful and ultra-quotable brevity in tidy bites. Consisting of 288 pages, it is concise—no bloat. We had fun creating this review and hope you enjoy it:
Total time: 28.24
To find out more about the book’s making, from seeking a publisher to editorial rounds, listen to 37signals’ podcast. Complementing all of the lean essays are wonderful and simple black-and-white sketchnote illustrations by Mike Rohde. You can read about his process and see his fantastic note taking during the SEED conferences.
