Synopsis

For too long our lives have been dominated by the 'under one roof' Industrial Revolution model of work. That era is now over. As remote working is becoming increasingly more flexible, there is no longer a reason for the daily roll call, of the need to be seen with your butt on your seat in the office. The technology and necessity to work remotely and to avoid the daily grind of commuting and meetings has finally come of age. Bestselling authors Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson are the masters of making it work at tech company 37signals.

Remote: Office Not Required combines eye-opening ideas with entertaining narrative. With its almost prescient content, the book will convince you that working remotely increases productivity and innovation, and it will also teach you how to get it right - whether you are a manager, working solo or one of a team. Chapters include: 'Talent isn't bound by the hubs', 'It's the technology, stupid', 'When to type, when to talk', 'Stop managing the chairs' and 'The virtual water cooler'.

Brilliantly simple and refreshingly illuminating this is a call to action to end the tyranny of being shackled to the office.
