when i purchased this book, i thought it was about stress in the workplace. the book is actually about how good basecamp is.
some companies do this , basecamp does the opposite .
some companies set goals, basecamp doesn't.
some companies set long term goals , basecamp does the opposite
for 8 hours it will give an example of what someone does then tell you the reason basecamp does it better. some was contradictory, a few points were good ideas (the reason i gave 3 stars).
the title should have said it is a story about basecamp, the title was misleading.

the entire book was written like the reader was a loser and the book was the answer. he braced the reader for his strange ideas that need to be done to improve all areas of your life . strange lunch. dinner for sex, odd work outs. overall , i was very disappointed in the approach and many of his ideas were idiotic at best
