Today is launch day for Scott Berkun’s new book: The Year Without Pants: WordPress.com and the Future of Work.
I’ve been waiting on this day for a while, I’m really excited that it’s out in the wild. It’s a fantastic read, Scott not only does a great job painting a picture of how we work at Automattic, but also expressing the culture within the company.
I was part of “Team Social” that Scott led for over a year, we had a lot of fun, and at the same time produced some high quality work. It’s quite strange reading a book about experiences that you’ve had in person, it’s like comparing a book to a movie. I think Scott nails the little details that made those experiences great.
If you’re interested in how a distributed company works, what it’s like to manage people at a distance, or how we get by on almost zero emails per day, this is the book for you.
You can buy it on Amazon starting today, go grab a copy!
