Rework By Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson
by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier

View in Library Catalog



This book was on my list of best books to read in 2017. The authors are founders and trailblazers of a software company 37 Signals. This book is great for entrepreneurs or someone wanting to start their own business. It gives you simple instructions on just starting something and figuring it out as you go along. I like the chapter on Draw a Line in the Sand. “You have to believe in something. You need to know what you’re willing to fight for. And, then you need to show the world”. It states that when you stand for something, your decisions become obvious. You will no longer have to argue with everyone about everything. They mentioned the importance of taking on very little debt when starting out. Investors began to rule your company and it can become very distracting. “It is just not worth it”, the authors stated. This book will help me with when I go back to work in Corporate America or start my own business. I highly recommend this book for anyone and hope Bellwood Library will get its own copy.

Powerful and enchanting! This novel focuses on four women in slavery. The women have to deal with excape, emotional/physical abuse, and sexuality. The four women often travel North on holiday with the slave owners to a resort. This was taboo during the slavery era. Very melodramatic.

A Summer Affair

It was spicy to witness Claire to have an affair with Lock Dixon without getting caught by her spouse. Basically, I understand that Claire felt underappreciated and satisfied in her home life. Lock gave her the chance to feel not only loved, but give her enough inspiration to go back to her art career.

Very good story. The movie is coming out soon and I am looking forward to see how much of the book is kept in the film. For espionage lovers, this will keep your attention. I will miss Mr. Flynn's books very much.

The Award

This is the most inspirational book I've ever read. After losing her entire family in the Holocaust, Gaelle managed to save the innocent lives of children while working for the OSE. Also, it was wonderful that she kept the well-known French paintings safe and gave them back to the art museums in France. Despite being ostracized by some of the citizens of France, Gaelle had the chance to live a free and successful life. She is the prime example of how courageous and brave a Holocaust survivor could be.
