Written in engaging style by a guy who's made "the leap" himself, this book gives you an insider's view of what it's like to actually go it alone.
Its honesty is refreshing and, as a reader who's made a similar journey myself, I feel the book manages to address many of the issues that I faced when considering my own future: whether to stay as a full-time employee or go solo. Of course, it also discusses other issues that weren't relevant to me when I made the leap, but which might be to someone else in that position.
I believe the book's useful to anyone already going it alone too - it works as a good reminder of the reasons for jumping in the first place. And with so many ideas inside about how to go about winning new business, or bringing a new perspective to your work etc, it's also reminded me how to handle (and get out of) those inevitable periods when a crisis of confidence or a slow-down in sales take place.
As the Intro to the book says, it's not a formalised guide to setting up a business with info on bank accounts, tax details and so on. It's more interesting than that! It's an easy-going and readable discussion about changing your life and making sure you make the most of it.
