Remote (2013), D. H. Hansson

As a remote worker myself, I was looking for ways to improve. This book was helpful in a variety of ways.

As a lead full-stack web developer, it reminded me of the need to remove roadblocks within my company. As a remote worker constantly connected to a chat application, it reminded me how to stay productive while handling dozens of questions every day on said chat application.

And moving forward, the book gives some interesting ideas, like asking nearby companies if they happen to have an extra desk available that I could rent to cut costs.

It also refers to other books which I’d like to read as well in order to become a better writer: “On Writing Well” by W. Zinsser, “The Element Of Style” by W. Strunk and E .B. White, and “Revising Prose” by R. Lanham.
