Associations Should Emulate Drug Dealers
ReWork is a book by the founders (Jason Fried and Hansson) of 37 Signals that will make you think and question conventional wisdom.
It it incredible thought provoking and we have given dozens of copies to our customers over the years and every NimblePalooza 2013 atendee will get a copy to take back as well.
