Customer Review

on 6 March 2012
Much of ReWork is memorialised common sense - but that kind of common sense that gets glossed over every hour of every day in every organisation in the world.

It is written in a brutally economical style, consistent with its underlying message: everything is overcomplicated: simplify, simplify, simplify. It is also a manifesto for those who want to start their own business. For those who dream fitfully of pulling the rip cord on the corporate treadmill - and let's face it: in these miserable times, we are many - this might be just the firm push between the shoulderblades we need.

Rework is funny, too, and it contains many quotable quotes. My favourite: "Policies are organisation scar tissue. They are codified over-reactions to situations that are unlikely to happen again".

Beautiful: and so true. (I should know: I work in the legal department!)

You'll be through it in a day, but you'll read it again.

Excellent stuff.
