Kick off Spring by devoting some time to your professional development! Join us for a glass of wine, light appetizers and a lively evening discussion of It Doesn’t Have to be Crazy at Work by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson. 

Book Description

In this timely manifesto, the authors of the New York Times bestseller Rework broadly reject the prevailing notion that long hours, aggressive hustle, and "whatever it takes" are required to run a successful business today.

It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work is a practical and inspiring distillation of Fried’s and Heinemeier’s insights and experiences. It isn’t a book telling you what to do. It’s a book showing you what they’ve done—and how any manager or executive no matter the industry or size of the company, can do it too.

If you haven't been able to participate in one of our book clubs, this is an excellent opportunity to rectify that situation!
