The 5 Best books on remote work for Remote Employees


Remote work is amazing. We can say goodbye the stressful commute and the uncomfortable "business professional" and the costly take-away food.


It's time to enjoy a lazy morning and slippers!


Remote work can be difficult. Remote work may be difficult since you're usually hundreds or even thousands of kilometers away from your colleagues. Additionally your workspace at home may lack some of the same bells and whistles as an office. Work-life boundaries can quickly disappear.


To learn how to conquer these challenges -- plus others you've not yet discovered -- take the time to read these books on remote work.

The book is split into seven chapters, each focused on a specific pillar of WFH success.


This book will teach you how to handle your email, overcome loneliness, and work with other people. The authors offer concrete advice and provide anecdotes to help make their points more concrete (no pun intended).
