Review

Sometimes you find a book which you simply can′t not read. The Year Without Pants was one of them. (The BookBag, October 2013)

Those looking for observations about the changing nature of the workplace won t be disappointed, but equally this is far from being just a passionless futurist text; Berkun infuses the whole book with real humour and gives an excellent personal account of the inner working of one of the world s most unorthodox enterprises. (Elite Business, November 2013)

"Well worth a look" (Mob 76 Outlook, November 2013)

the book is gripping. (Loyalty Magazine, January 2014)

the fact that this book has a genuine story and a timeframe makes for a good pace and a good read. (B2B Marketing, April 2014)

there are lots of lessons about how to make good decisions and get along with others in the workplace. (Able Magazine, June 2014)

offers sage advice for managers looking to overhaul their corporate culture. (Communication Director, June 2014)

..it s without a doubt, one of my favourite, most useful and enjoyable reads of all time. (What Goes Around, July 2014)

From the Inside Flap

What happens when an old-school management guru leaves the books and lectures behind to lead a young team at a revolutionary company, with no email, no offices, and no rules? The answer is an amazing and entertaining book about the future of work.

Automattic, Inc., runs WordPress.com, the 15th most popular website on the planet, and is the leading organization behind WordPress, the software that powers 20 percent of the entire web—60 million sites and counting. Their success is based on challenging our biggest assumptions about how work is done:

Employees work remotely, from wherever in the world they wish

No one uses email, preferring customized blogs and online chat

There are no schedules, few meetings, and fewer rules

Workers launch new ideas and features dozens of times a day

In The Year Without Pants, popular author and former Microsoft manager ('94-'03) Scott Berkun reports on his challenging year working at WordPress.com as the leader of one of its most important teams. His bold and entertaining tale is filled with great advice for managers, executives, and employees alike about how great work is done and what Automattic's success means for the rest of us.

With his legendary humour and the unique perspective of a seasoned outsider-turned-insider, The Year Without Pants is the best book you will read on the ways leadership, productivity, and work are evolving on business's brave new frontier.
