Learning Links, 4

Today's link is to a business book which packs great ideas into easy-to-read, short chapters. Written by Jason Fried and David Hansson, who are the founders of 37signals (a successful software company whose products are used by millions of people worldwide), ReWork offers practical tips for looking at how business is done and how to generate steady creativity. Good, solid, practical ideas that translate well into the world of education.

In fact, I bought the book because there's a quote on the front cover by my current favorite business writer, Seth Godin: "Ignore this book at your own peril".

Well....perhaps not 'peril', exactly, but it's well worth a read.
