What is this summary about

Most business books give you the same old advice: Write a business plan, study the competition, find investors, yadda yadda. If you're looking for a book like that, put this one back on the shelf.

Rework shows you a better, faster, easier way to succeed in business. Read it and you'll know why plans are actually harmful, why you don't need outside investors, and why you're better off ignoring the competition. The truth is that you need less than you think. You don't need to be a workaholic. You don't need to staff up. You don't need to waste time on paperwork or meetings. You don't even need an office. Those are all just excuses.

What you really need to do is to stop talking and start working. This book shows you the way. You'll learn how to be more productive, how to get exposure without breaking into the bank, and tons more counterintuitive ideas that will inspire and provoke you.
