Best of Berkun

I’ve written 1400+ posts, and eight books, on many topics over the 16 years this website has existed. If you’re new to my work, here are my most popular posts, including those featured in other websites or magazines. I’ve worked the hardest on the books, so that’s my best writing, but I’ve published many gems as posts and essays and they’re listed below.

In 2011 I published Mindfire: Big Ideas for Curious Minds, a collection of my best essays, which you pick up here. If you like what you see, follow me by email or on twitter. Thanks for reading.

Compiled from 2003-2015.

Free Chapters from the books


Philosophy of Life


Public Speaking


Working Life

Interface Design / Making Software

Project Management

    Hi Scott,

    Now finishing The year without pants, really enjoyed it. Any great posts on remote working for people considering starting a business of that kind?

    Thank you!
