I was not fan of reading book earlier. I was like to sit against computer and would like to build stuffs using the programming knowledge that i posses. But i have read on internet about rework book. I knew that most of people who are doing business like this book. I have purchased this book ftom Amazon kindle store and downloaded kindle app for iPhone. I have started reading this book. I red few chapters and find it interesting to me. Than i had started reading this book when ever i had time.

Rework has expressed tottally different way of starting or doing business. Infact it empoers your thinking level in personal life also. The book is talking about Various topics

Planning

Planning in practical way instead of spending too much time in only planing.

Meetings

Too much meeting will distract you from work. Early morning habitual meeting will boar you. Instead meet when you have some results. Frequent mertings would eat all people’s time.

Competition

Book has nicely explain business competion and how to stand uniquely in this competition.

Promotion

It also covers how to promote your work. Promotion in a practical way instead of spending special time just only for promotion.

Hiring

This book said when you are starting your own business instead of hiring initially just start work with your own. Keep doing it for few time. If you alone is not enough to complete work than you should think about hiring.

There are other good topics which this book covers which i have not listed in this short book review.

I tottaly recommend to read this book if you are doing business or plan to start new one.
