Leans too much towards the why rather than how
on 1 November 2013
Much more of a manifesto than a radical how to guide than 37signals previous books, I was a bit disappointed. As a remote worker myself, I didn't find much that was new and/or didn't fit into the common sense category. I guess that's reassuring in a way and perhaps this is a topic for which there's not much to say.
If you are an aspiring remote worker, or a manager of an aspiring remote worker, this is well worth picking up as a quick 101 guide although you could probably work out most of it yourself. I'd also say that the recommendations of software/services are unlikely to satisfy bosses at anything other than small enterprises (document sharing, for example = Dropbox/SkyDrive or Google Docs).
Already a remote worker? There's not much to see here unfortunately - but it's an engaging read.
