The Year Without Pants Summary

WordPress.com and the Future of Work

Let’s get one thing straight: titles don’t get any more original than this!

And if you scroll down a bit to see the photograph of Scott Berkun we’ve chosen for you, we bet you’ll have no problems linking the face to the name!

“The Year Without Pants” lives up to its title.

We hope our summary will live up to the book.

Who Should Read “The Year Without Pants”? And Why?

“The Year Without Pants” is a book written by a former employee of one of the largest companies in the world.

That might be just enough for a fancy-tickling blurb, but we can do you one better. Namely, the writer is also a former Microsoft employee, and the book was chosen by Amazon as one of the best books of 2013.

So, managers, entrepreneurs, daydreaming start-up freaks – dive in! With a little effort, you can learn a lot about leadership and management techniques from Berkun and the practice of WordPress.
