Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson, the authors of the New York Times bestseller Rework, are back with a manifesto to combat all your modern workplace worries and fears.
It Doesn’t Have to Be Crazy at Work is a direct successor to Rework, the instant bestseller that showed readers a new path to working effectively. Now Fried and Heinemeier Hansson have returned with a new strategy for the ideal company culture – what they call “the calm company”. It is a direct attack on the chaos, anxiety and stress that plagues millions of workplaces and billions of people working their day jobs.
Working to breaking point with long hours, excessive workload, and a lack of sleep have become a badge of honour for many people these days, when it should be a mark of stupidity. This isn’t just a problem for large organisations; individuals, contractors and solopreneurs are burning themselves out in the very same way. As the authors reveal, the answer isn’t more hours. Rather, it’s less waste and fewer things that induce distraction, always-on anxiety and stress.
It is time to stop celebrating crazy and start celebrating calm.
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.

About the Author
Jason Fried is the cofounder and CEO of Basecamp. He started the company back in 1999 and has been running the show ever since. Along with David, he wrote Getting Real, Rework, and Remote. When it comes to business, he thinks things are simple until you make them complicated. And when it comes to life, we're all just trying to figure it out as we go.
David Heinemeier Hansson is the cofounder of Basecamp and the New York Times bestselling coauthor of Rework and Remote. He's also the creator of the software toolkit Ruby on Rails, which has been used to launch and power Twitter, Shopify, GitHub, Airbnb, Square, and over a million other web applications. Originally from Denmark, he moved to Chicago in 2005 and now divides his time between the US and Spain with his wife and two sons. In his spare time, he enjoys 200-mph race cars in international competition, taking cliche pictures of sunsets and kids, and ranting far too much on Twitter.
Eileen Stevens is a voice-over actress living and working in New York City whose voice can be heard on cartoons, promos, programs for English-language learners, and audiobooks. She has voiced Iris on Pokemon. An Earphones Award-winning narrator, she has also directed and produced audiobooks for over six years.--This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Like Rework, this book provides fresh perspective on running a business. Many of the topics are common sense in hindsight, yet rarely seen in businesses focusing exclusively on profits. A few chapters are truly insightful and have stuck with me, particularly those relating to pricing products. The chapter on employee benefits made me want to work at Basecamp, which was perhaps the point.
Unlike Rework, however, this book felt long-winded in places. A few of the chapters felt light on content and stretched to fill the word count. It's possible my opinion is coloured by Rework, where common ground is covered. Perhaps this left me thinking some chapters are "obvious", when fresh readers would find all of it insightful.
I'm definitely a fan of the Basecamp guys and will no doubt buy their next book, should they write one. If you've read none of their previous work, definitely give this a read and pick up Rework too. If more businesses were run this way, the world would be a much better place.
It’s good to read business advice from successful business people that is so calm and takes a different line from almost any other I’ve read. Assuming working for Basecamp really is as good as the picture the authors paint then anyone working there is pretty lucky.
A few stylistic quibbles aside this is a great enjoyable read. The only bit which jars for Europeans is flagging 3 weeks paid leave as something special - everyone I know gets at least 5 (excluding public holidays which are on top). But this is one detail in a book full showing a really pleasant attitude to work and business.
If you happen to work for an awful employer I’m not sure if this book will irritate or inspire though!
