It is easy to read and is full of useful hints and tips for the budding entrepreneur/business person. Down to earth and straight to the point as well as entertaining, this book is not patronizing nor baffling as so many other business related books are.
I would definately recommend this to anyone who already has a small business or is considering starting one. I shall be returning to this book from time to time to reacquaint myself with the tips!
The number of self-employed people in the UK is 4.2m and will soon reach the 4.5m mark. Yet so little is written about the experiences of single person businesses. I congratulate Mr Robinson for unashamedly putting forward the perspective of micro businesses; the plumbers, electricians, caterers, freelance bookkeepers, therapists, shop owners, IT specialists and independent consultants, who day in and day out generate trading income to put bread on the table, get their children through university, pay taxes and provide valuable services in the communities where they work and live. No doubt high growth businesses and technology companies deserve our attention and support but the army of the self employed, who stay small but keep themselves in a job and in many cases support others to stay in employment, also deserve our support and admiration, particularly now when just keeping your head above water is a resounding achievement.
Freedom from Bosses Forever is a refreshing take on entrepreneurship counterbalancing academics' and politicians' bias on high growth businesses and technology companies as well as those cartoon-like portraits of businesspeople the media is so fond of. If we are serious about supporting small businesses we need many more authors - scholars, advisers and entrepreneurs - like Tony Robinson, engaging in a dialogue with micro businesses, analysing their experiences and publishing their stories to build a body of learning materials that actually makes sense to small entrepreneurs.

The reader is introduced to someone called Leonora Soculitherz, and the story is told from her point of view. In bold, there are messages for the reader that teaches them how to be their own person and their own boss. It's an enlightening book that had me laughing out loud at some points because I know people like the narrator mentions, and at other points I went `hmm'. I'll tell you why I went `hmm'. It was because I had thought of some of this on my own as an entrepreneur, and yet I never actually exercised these tips. I will be starting now.
I can honestly give this book five stars because it is one of the most entertaining business books I have ever read. While some of the advice in this book might seem obvious to others, some entrepreneurs need to see it reiterated again as a refresher. To make a long review short, I highly enjoyed this book and recommend it to others!
Fantastic advice in the book and it does mean Freedom to liberate people to accomplish a successful business that is their dream.
We need saving from the professional, blinkered politicians, particularly those who are in power from their titles rather than from the ballot box.
