Jason Fried könyvei a rukkolán


Jason Fried - David Heinemeier Hansson - Rework
Miért ​károsak az üzleti tervek? Miért nincs szükséged külső befektetőkre? Miért jársz jobban, ha nem törődsz a versenytársaiddal? Szókimondó nyelvezete és "minél egyszerűbb, annál jobb" megközelítésmódja teszi a Reworköt a legjobb szabálykönyvvé, amire egy saját lábára álló vállalkozónak szüksége lehet. Amire valójában szükséged van, az az, hogy befejezd a mellébeszélést, és nekikezdj a munkának. Ez a könyv megmutatja, hogyan. Megtanulhatod belőle: -hogyan növeld a termelékenységedet, -hogyan fedezd a kiadásaidat bankrablás nélkül, és számos más, a megszokottnak ellentmondó, lelkesítő és provokatív ötletet meríthetsz belőle. A komoly cégtulajdonosok, a kisvállalkozók, a gyűlölt állásukban ragadt emberek, a leépítések áldozatai, az éhezést megunt művészlelkek mind értékes útmutatást fognak találni ezeken a lapokon.

Jason Fried - David Heinemeier Hansson - It ​Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work
In ​this timely manifesto, the authors of the New York Times bestseller Rework broadly reject the prevailing notion that long hours, aggressive hustle, and "whatever it takes" are required to run a successful business today. In Rework, Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson introduced a new path to working effectively. Now, they build on their message with a bold, iconoclastic strategy for creating the ideal company culture—what they call "the calm company." Their approach directly attack the chaos, anxiety, and stress that plagues millions of workplaces and hampers billions of workers every day. Long hours, an excessive workload, and a lack of sleep have become a badge of honor for modern professionals. But it should be a mark of stupidity, the authors argue. Sadly, this isn’t just a problem for large organizations—individuals, contractors, and solopreneurs are burning themselves out the same way. The answer to better productivity isn’t more hours—it’s less waste and fewer things that induce distraction and persistent stress. It’s time to stop celebrating Crazy, and start celebrating Calm, Fried and Hansson assert. Fried and Hansson have the proof to back up their argument. "Calm" has been the cornerstone of their company’s culture since Basecamp began twenty years ago. Destined to become the management guide for the next generation, It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work is a practical and inspiring distillation of their insights and experiences. It isn’t a book telling you what to do. It’s a book showing you what they’ve done—and how any manager or executive no matter the industry or size of the company, can do it too.

Matthew Linderman - Jason Fried - Defensive ​Design for the Web
Let's ​admit it: Things will go wrong online. No matter how carefully you design a site, no matter how much testing you do, customers still encounter problems. So how do you handle these inevitable breakdowns? With defensive design. In this book, the experts at 37signals (whose clients include Microsoft, Qwest, Monster.com, and Clear Channel) will show you how. Defensive design is like defensive driving brought to the Web. The same way drivers must always be on the lookout for slick roads, reckless drivers, and other dangerous scenarios, site builders must constantly search for trouble spots that cause visitors confusion and frustration. Good site defense can make or break the customer experience. In these pages, you'll see hundreds of real-world examples from companies like Amazon, Google, and Yahoo that show the right (and wrong) ways to get defensive. You'll learn 40 guidelines to prevent errors and rescue customers if a breakdown occurs. You'll also explore how to evaluate your own site's defensive design and improve it over the long term. This book is a must read for designers, programmers, copywriters, and any other site decision-makers who want to increase usability and customer satisfaction.

Jason Fried - David Heinemeier Hansson - Rework ​(angol)
This ​book will make you uncomfortable. Depending on what you do all day, it might make you extremely uncomfortable. That's a very good thing, because you deserve it. We all do. Jason and David have broken all the rules and won. Again and again they've demonstrated that the regular way isn't necessarily the right way. They just don't say it, they do it. And they do it better than just about anyone has any right to expect. This book is short, fast, sharp and ready to make a difference. It takes no prisoners, spares no quarter, and gives you no place to hide, all at the same time. There, my review is almost as long as the first chapter of the book. I can't imagine what possible excuse you can dream up for not buying this book for every single person you work with, right now. Stop reading the review. Buy the book.--Seth Godin

David Heinemeier Hansson - Jason Fried - Remote ​(angol)
The ​“work from home” phenomenon is thoroughly explored in this illuminating new book from bestselling 37signals founders Fried and Hansson, who point to the surging trend of employees working from home (and anywhere else) and explain the challenges and unexpected benefits. Most important, they show why – with a few controversial exceptions such as Yahoo -- more businesses will want to promote this new model of getting things done. The Industrial Revolution's "under one roof" model of conducting work is steadily declining owing to technology that is rapidly creating virtual workspaces and allowing workers to provide their vital contribution without physically clustering together. Today, the new paradigm is "move work to the workers, rather than workers to the workplace." According to Reuters, one in five global workers telecommutes frequently and nearly ten percent work from home every day. Moms in particular will welcome this trend. A full 60% wish they had a flexible work option. But companies see advantages too in the way remote work increases their talent pool, reduces turnover, lessens their real estate footprint, and improves the ability to conduct business across multiple time zones, to name just a few advantages. In Remote, inconoclastic authors Fried and Hansson will convince readers that letting all or part of work teams function remotely is a great idea--and they're going to show precisely how a remote work setup can be accomplished.

Jason Fried - David Heinemeier Hansson - Remote
A ​REMOTE egy heves vitákat kiváltó munkastílusról, a távmunkáról ad ragyogó, új szempontokat, minden kihívásával és előnyével együtt. Ha érdekel a lehetőség, hogy áttérj a távmunkára, de megvannak a magad kétségei, most választ kapsz a kérdéseidre. Szeretnéd, ha több tehetséges embert tudnál fölvenni, csökkenne a fluktuáció, kevesebb ingatlanra lenne szükség a tevékenységedhez, és könnyebben tudnál működni, akár több időzónában is? Ha átállsz a távmunkára azzal lehetővé teszed a legtehetségesebb embereidnek, hogy a legjobb teljesítményt nyújtsák függetlenül attól, hol laknak. A REMOTE meggyőző érvekkel bizonyítja, hogy a "telephelyen kívüli" munkavégzés előnyei gyakran bőven meghaladják a hátrányokat. Akár vállalati vezető vagy, akinek az a gondja, hogyan kezelje azokat a beosztottjait, akik el akarják hagyni az irodát, akár dolgozó, aki szeretne kellemesebben élni úgy, hogy közben azért a szakmájában is a csúcson legyen, ez a könyv mindenképpen nélkülözhetetlen útmutatót jelent.
