Scott Buchmann doesn't read many business books. "Something about them makes me feel nauseous. There’s an ongoing fear that if I read too many of them, I’ll buy a bluetooth headset and start chewing gum," he writes. Given his anti-biz book stance, it's great to see the thoughtful review he posted praising REWORK.
Making movies teaches you how to make movies. This is such a simple concept, but is lost on so many. The world is littered with classes on how to do anything: how to ride a motorcycle, how to paint, how to juggle, how to make money. Fact is, that you will never learn to do any of these things unless you actually go out and do these things. Instruction should be supplemental, not instrumental. This is true for all art forms, as well as for more pragmatic schools, such as business, medicine, and law. You can’t be a good surgeon if you don’t get your hands dirty.
