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, authors Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson return with a new strategy for the ideal company culture—what they call “the calm company.” It’s a direct attack on the chaos, anxiety, and stress that plagues millions of workplaces and billions of people working their day jobs. Long Hours, excessive business, and a lack of sleep have become a badge of honor for many people these days, when it should be a mark of stupidity. This isn’t just a problem for large organizations—individuals, contractors, and solopreneurs are burning themselves out the very same way. As the authors reveal, the answer isn’t more hours—it’s less waste and fewer things that induce distraction, always-on anxiety, and stress. It’s time to stop celebrating crazy, and start celebrating calm. Fried and Hansson have made “Calm” the cornerstone of their company’s culture for the 20 years that Basecamp has been in existence. They have the experience, with implementing a calm company, and the proof that it works. It isn’t a book telling you what to do. It’s a book showing you what they’ve done. Read Less

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 cliché pictures of sunsets and kids, and ranting far too much on Twitter.show more
