The “work from home” phenomenon is thoroughly explored in this illuminating new book from bestselling 37signals founders Fried and Hansson, who point to the surging trend of employees working from home (and anywhere else) and explain the challenges and unexpected benefits. Most important, they show why – with a few controversial exceptions such as Yahoo -- more businesses will want to promote this new model of getting things done.

The Industrial Revolution's "under one roof" model of conducting work is steadily declining owing to technology that is rapidly creating virtual workspaces and allowing workers to provide their vital contribution without physically clustering together. Today, the new paradigm is "move work to the workers, rather than workers to the workplace." According to Reuters, one in five global workers telecommutes frequently and nearly ten percent work from home every day. Moms in particular will welcome this trend. A full 60% wish they had a flexible work option. But companies see advantages too in the way remote work increases their talent pool, reduces turnover, lessens their real estate footprint, and improves the ability to conduct business across multiple time zones, to name just a few advantages. In Remote , inconoclastic authors Fried and Hansson will convince readers that letting all or part of work teams function remotely is a great idea--and they're going to show precisely how a remote work setup can be accomplished.
THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR REMOTE WORK
Why work doesn’t happen at work
Stop commuting your life away
It’s the technology, stupid
Escaping 9am–5pm
End of city monopoly
The new luxury
Talent isn’t bound by the hubs
It’s not about the money
But saving is always nice
Not all or nothing
Still a trade-off
You’re probably already doing it
DEALING WITH EXCUSES 处理常见疑问
Magic only happens when we’re all in a room
If I can’t see them, how do I know they’re working?
People’s homes are full of distractions
Only the office can be secure
Who will answer the phone?
Big business doesn’t do it, so why should we?
Others would get jealous
What about culture?
I need an answer now!
But I’ll lose control
We paid a lot of money for this office
That wouldn’t work for our size or industry
HOW TO COLLABORATE REMOTELY 如何远程合作
Thou shalt overlap
Seeing is believing
All out in the open
The virtual water cooler
Forward motion 秀出工作进展
The work is what matters
Not just for people who are out of town
Disaster ready
Easy on the M&Ms
BEWARE THE DRAGONS 当心副作用
Cabin fever
Check-in, check-out
Ergonomic basics
Mind the gut 当心你的腰围
The lone outpost 前哨
Working with clients
Taxes, accounting, laws, oh my!
HIRING AND KEEPING THE BEST 招聘最牛人
It’s a big world
Life moves on
Keep the good times going
Seeking a human
No parlor tricks
The cost of thriving
Great remote workers are simply great workers
On writing well
Test project
Meeting them in person
Contractors know the drill
MANAGING REMOTE WORKERS 远程管理员工
When’s the right time to go remote?
Stop managing the chairs
Meetups and sprints
Lessons from open source
Level the playing field
One-on-ones
Remove the roadblocks
Be on the lookout for overwork, not underwork
Using scarcity to your advantage
LIFE AS A REMOTE WORKER 远程工作的生活
Building a routine
Morning remote, afternoon local
Compute different
Working alone in a crowd
Staying motivated
Nomadic freedom
A change of scenery
Family time
No extra space at home
Making sure you’re not ignored
CONCLUSION
The quaint old office
