Not bad, not special,
This review is from: Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft, and Design (Paperback)
There has certainly been a revolution in business in the recent years. Small based entrepreneurs have created niche markets for themse;ves and their friends, and this is a good thing. This book showcases such pioneers.If you are interested in the indie community, you may have seen their websites already. What the book does is bringing together some of these people and their work.
However, it does not offer anything more substantial than what you would find in Etsy profiles, for example. There isn't any work put in assessing the "why" and the "how" behind these people and their business. In that, the book disappoints. It is useful if you want an introduction to the indie scene in the States.
