The classic guide to working from home and why we should embrace a virtual office, from the bestselling authors of Rework  
“A paradigm-smashing, compulsively readable case for a radically remote workplace.”—Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Quiet
Does working from home—or anywhere else but the office—make sense? In Remote, Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson, the founders of Basecamp, bring new insight to the hotly debated argument. While providing a complete overview of remote work’s challenges, Jason and David persuasively argue that, often, the advantages of working “off-site” far outweigh the drawbacks.
In the past decade, the “under one roof” model of conducting work has been steadily declining, owing to technology that is rapidly creating virtual workspaces. Today the new paradigm is “move work to the workers, rather than workers to the workplace.” Companies see advantages in the way remote work increases their talent pool, reduces turnover, lessens their real estate footprint, and improves their ability to conduct business across multiple time zones. But what about the workers? Jason and David point out that remote work means working at the best job (not just one that is nearby) and achieving a harmonious work-life balance while increasing productivity.
And those are just some of the perks to be gained from leaving the office behind. Remote reveals a multitude of other benefits, along with in-the-trenches tips for easing your way out of the office door where you control how your workday will unfold.
Whether you’re a manager fretting over how to manage workers who “want out” or a worker who wants to achieve a lifestyle upgrade while still being a top performer professionally, this book is your indispensable guide.

    If you're even lightly interested in remote work, this book is the missing guide you've been waiting for. It not only covers why and when remote working makes sense, but also how you can avoid the pitfalls and manage employees who work remotely. It's a short read and clearly written book.
  • really inspiring book

    i really love the idea of this book, and i am actually start doing the same thing, but it seems the 37signal have around less than 50 employ in total, i guess it would be hard to manage if the company grows fast, for example 500 people work remotely?
  • Another must read

    Another great book from the guys and 37signals. Business is changing and not always for the better. This is a great look at ways a business can succeed and employees can thrive and be happy. Win-win.
  • Healthy dose of inspiration

    Much like their other books, Remote is a shot of adrenaline for anyone willing to question the status quo. While not necessarily a step by step blueprint for exactly how to switch to a remote workforce, it definitely speaks to pros, cons, common objections and things that have helped them and other companies succeed with mobile employees. As a soon to be remote worker, I am more excited than ever for all the benefits of working remotely- while more realistic about he upcoming challenges. Great read. Highly recommended.
  • Great!
