Every once in a while, a book comes out that changes just about everything. This is one of those books. Ignore it at your peril' -- Seth Godin, New York Times bestselling author

**********************************************************************************************
From the founders of the trailblazing software company 37signals, here is a different kind of business book - one that explores a new reality.

Today, anyone can be in business. Tools that used to be out of reach are now easily accessible. Technology that cost thousands is now just a few pounds or even free. Stuff that was impossible just a few years ago is now simple.

That means anyone can start a business. And you can do it without working miserable 80-hour weeks or depleting your life savings. You can start it on the side while your day job provides all the cash flow you need. Forget about business plans, meetings, office space - you don't need them. The key is stripping everything back to the bare minimum and basics and then rebuilding; keeping everything simple and under control. You'll learn how to begin, why you need less than you think, when to launch, how to promote and whom (and when) to hire.

Hardcore entrepreneurs, small-business owners, people stuck in day jobs who want to get out, and artists who don't want to starve anymore will all find valuable inspiration and guidance in these pages.

It's time to rework work.

Perfect for readers of Tim Ferriss's The 4 Hour Work Week, Seth Godin's Purple Cow and Chris Anderson's The Long Tail.

After I have read the hard copy that a friend gave me, I had to buy it in order to quickly look into it when I need in the future. This is a book full of tips for people who want to DO and not only plan and talk about ideas, but actually make these ideas come true. I feel so much more motivated after reading it. Besides, it is so compact and easy to read that I have managed to read the whole thing in 2,5 Hours, and I consider myself a slow reader.

The book is really out of the box material. It scraps the old methods of doing work and teaches how to work out totally in new,more meaningful and creative ways. The author is really intelligent person to have observed, invented and scripted down all his creative skills and knowledge of work breaking down all the old techniques and ways of working. Honestly lobed the book. Truely Inspired by the writer.
