Getting Real: The smarter, faster, easier way to build a successful web application
Paperback, 194 Pages
Ships in 3-5 business days.
Getting Real details the business, design, programming, and marketing principles of 37signals. The book is packed with keep-it-simple insights, contrarian points of view, and unconventional approaches to software design. This is not a technical book or a design tutorial, it's a book of ideas. Anyone working on a web app — including entrepreneurs, designers, programmers, executives, or marketers — will find value and inspiration in this book. 37signals used the Getting Real process to launch five successful web-based applications (Basecamp, Campfire, Backpack, Writeboard, Ta-da List), and Ruby on Rails, an open-source web application framework, in just two years with no outside funding, no debt, and only 7 people (distributed across 7 time zones). Over 500,000 people around the world use these applications to get things done. Now you can find out how they did it and how you can do it too. It's not as hard as you think if you Get Real.

Dec 10, 2009This book is a good read. It has some good tips. Having the hard copy is surely better than readin a PDF, HOWEVER...this is really just a collection of blog posts. All this content is available on thier blog and other entrepreneur blogs. If you cant be bothered sourcing this content (ie cant work google and rss aggregator) or want to read it on the train then it is probably worth the purchase price.

Oct 27, 2009"§§§§§§§§§§§§ VERY Helpful §§§§§§§§§§§" I also wish I had purchased this book sooner. Just briefly flipping through it the day I got it, I was able to resolve several issues that had been giving me trouble with my cart. I made back the money I spent on the book the first day in my time alone!
Oct 14, 2009Found the book enjoyable to read but not very educational, there was not much in there I didn't already know, I would recommend the book to novices. For a Free iPhone, go to:Free iPhone, Free Macbook go to: Macbook or a Free iPod go to: Free iPod
