In the UK he studied law before running a construction company based in central London. In Spain, he has worked within the real estate industry as well as undertaking investigative journalism. He has written three books about Spain:

'Taking the Heat' - a book described as a 'side-splitting account of life in Spain' (www.thexpat.com).

'How to Sell your Spanish property in a Crisis' - as the title suggests, this is a specific guide for those people trying to sell their properties but caught up within the Spanish property crash. This has been reviewed as 'brilliant' (Eye on Spain) and 'I recommend the first expenditure you make when selling your property in Spain is the 15 quid to buy the book...' www.kyero.com.

'How to Move Safely to Spain' - available as an e-book (only 12.75!) from www.movetospain-safely.com. This book is the ultimate guide to moving to Spain (84,500 words, 26 sections, 9 professional contributors). Reviewed as '...everything you need to know...'(Europe Talk Radio)and '...excellent...' (Costa Blanca News) and '...invaluable...' Round Town News.

A keen sportsman, Nick spends most weekends rock climbing.

A really useful guide for anyone who wants to liberate themselves from the 9-5 and also from dependence on any employer for their financial security. Cuts through a lot of the jargon and mystique about online marketing with good practical comparisons with real-world businesses - this is really helpful for anyone not sure how to get started, especially if you have any knowledge or experience in marketing or promoting offline products or services. The parallels are not always obvious, but this accessible guide helps you to understand them, and to grasp the potential of the global marketplace.

So much internet marketing advice is full of hype, but this book is down to earth and realistic - no 'money for nothing' promises, just practical ideas and advice. Written by two British expats on the Spanish coast these two guys prove that their approach works, because they are both making a living online in a tough economic climate locally. Some business skills you cannot learn in any university, you have to find people in your field who have achieved success and model what they are doing... this is a good example of that kind of learning, and well recommended for anyone wanting to get started making real money online.

Have you ever sat in a beach cafe and wondered if people really can make a living from such a location. I've been doing so for around seven years. I wish when I started I had access to this book.

Everything you need to know to start to use the Internet to earn money is contained within the book's covers. There are seven main chapters, plus and overview, and sections providing to essential resources.

The case studies are informative. The authors clearly know their material, but they don't hype how easy it is to make money using a laptop, which as one who knows what it takes, I find reassuring.

I would have liked to see more case studies, and I'm sure the authors have cautionary anecdotes they might have shared to add pace to what is essentially a step-by-step how-to do-it manual.

Basically, you can trust this book. Follow it and you will get somewhere, maybe not next week, but certainly this year :)

This is one book in my collection that will get dog-eared! What a tremendous resource. I started underlining and making notes in the margin on the very first page. It's chock full of useful information for anyone working from home. I've been working freelance for almost 5 years now and it was still a goldmine for me, and also reminded me of some tried and true methods that had fallen by the wayside. I especially like the recap of resources and the case studies at the end of each chapter (my favorite one was for Market Samurai). You do need some knowledge of online marketing to understand what he's talking about in most of the book but if you're a newbie and really keen, there's enough examples and guidance for you to learn as you go.

Thanks Nick and Graham for an amazing resource!

Cheers,

Format: Paperback
`The Laptop Entrepreneur' is an excellent book that clearly and simply explains how to make money on-line. It is ideal for anyone who wants to use the Internet to make money, either in developing their own income or to really effectively market their existing business or products and services. Written by a professional writer and web marketing expert, `Laptop' peels away the mystery of how the Internet works and shows, in seven sections, how to operate on-line. This is done without any confusing techie. language and is ideal for anyone starting out. It lays a firm foundation of knowledge and is crammed with invaluable resources and case studies. It is a must-read for anyone wanting independence - even if they are not, at the moment(!), in the least techie or knowledgeable about the Internet!

There are many, many valid reasons why someone might want to start a business from home. They may want to earn an additional income, they may want to escape the rat race and become their own boss, they may be fed up of the commute to the city every day, they may be disabled, or have caring responsibilities and it makes sense to work from home. Whatever the reason, this book cuts to the chase, taking the reader by the hand through the minefield of working from a lap top at home, safely and with easy to follow guidelines. There is much advice around on entrepreneurship, but little to match this. Well worth reading and, more importantly, implementing.
