It Doesn’t Have to Be Crazy at Work. Indeed.

I am so glad I bought and read Jason Fried and David Heine­meier Hansson’s lat­est book It Does­n’t Have to Be Crazy at Work. The book is a col­lec­tion of suc­cinct and insight­ful essays on how to work calm­ly and effec­tive­ly. Along­side those, it teach­es great lessons on lead­er­ship which ties into how Jason and DHH run their com­pa­ny, Base­camp. I feel lucky to have found and read book at this stage in my career. I loved the book so much that and I am keep­ing it as my go-to lead­er­ship hand­book.

The essays are quick and easy to read. I think their ideas are non­con­formist. Yet they don’t sound weird and make per­fect sense.

I also enjoy read­ing their blog Sig­nal v. Noise where they share great posts that over­lap with some of the book’s con­tent. I specif­i­cal­ly rec­om­mend Jason’s arti­cles on iter­at­ing and flip-flop­ping which are close to my beliefs.

I also recent­ly lis­tened to Jason’s Hur­ry Slow­ly episode and loved it. I am yet to get to his Tim Fer­riss Show episode but I know it is going to be a great mas­ter­class which I am sav­ing up for lat­er.

I high­ly rec­om­mend this book because you will learn loads of ideas on how to run a calm team and have a calm career; which seems daunt­ing in this fast-paced and hus­tle-lov­ing world. This book may shat­ter all the notions you have about what it means to have a great career.
