It's not going to tell you anything technical about professional web design, however it's very useful imformation contained within if you're going to peddle your wares in the big, wide, and often scary world.

It has imformation about the people you're likely to work for/with and how to handle them along with a basic nod to web design principles.

In short, it shouldn't be your only book in your web design library, but you should probably have it in there non-the less.

This book is very useful it's not full of code or learning such things, however it will help you build a portfolio that attracts clients. I am half way through reading this book and have learnt a great deal.

If you are an owner of a web design company or thinking of starting out then this is fully of handy techniques.

I hope this has helped :)
