Remote. Remote office not required.Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson. 2013. ISBN 9780804137508.  A second book from the Founders of 37Signals ( Rework) which outlines how they have made working remotely really work. Lots of examples form their experience and those of other large and small companies, put the lie to the Yahoo story about working remotely. Some great lines.  You shouldn’t hire people you can not trust nor should you work where you are not trusted.

Good suggestions on easy screen casting, meetups and conferencing tools.  Plus years of experience in assisting their wide ly place “stars” in dealing with what can come up. I appreciate that time slots should overlap by four hours to make for smooth hand offs.Equal pay across geographies is a great concept.  And in hiring paying extreme attention to the writing’s in  the cover letter since  to be good at remote work you must be able to write.

They make good arguments and you will breeze through this book.
