Very late Wednesday night (technically closer to pre-dawn Thursday), I uploaded the final version of the manuscript to Amazon. Then, after I rechecked all my various todo lists one-more-time and found everything was crossed out, I quietly paused with the cursor over the “publish” button.
Took a deep breath.
And clicked “Publish”.
As of last night, you can now buy paperback and kindle versions on Amazon.com. It’s been 3 years and ~2 months since I started this book and I still find it hard to believe that I’m writing this announcement.
This book is aimed towards people working in, joining, or starting a distributed team, with easy-to-read short chapters and practical takeaways on topics like:
* Why distributed teams are good for business, diversity, employee retention, society and the environment.
* How to run efficient video calls and meetings while dealing with lots of email and group chat.
* How to handle complex interpersonal topics such as hiring, firing, one-on-ones, reviews, trust and group culture.
I’m super proud and humbled by the help from many many people who came out of their way to help me make this idea into a reality. If you find this book helpful, please tweet/blog to help spread the word!
