What I’m Reading Now–June 2014

Year W/O PantsI learned about this book when my dad shared an article with me that Scott wrote.  I can’t put this book down.  Not only am I learning about the world of WordPress (where my blog lives!) and Automattic but I love Scott’s thoughts on managing teams.  There are a lot of great ideas in this book including, office culture examples, leadership roles and how to work with creative people.  He has a nice writing style and he holds nothing back about his first year at Automattic.

“Any manager who eliminates superfluous traditions takes a step toward progress.  If removing a restriction improves performance or has no impact on performance but improves morale, everyone wins.”  The Year Without Pants, Scott Berkun

It’s another book that I recommend buying the physical book so you can dog ear pages and highlight text!
