If you like your practical business advice served up with a side dish of humour, then this is the book for you. Tips to help you with your new and small business sit side by side with amusing anecdotes and zany asides. The author's own business experience comes through clearly and makes his suggestions and observations about running your own business much more credible and easy to swallow than that of the usual business school guru. Well worth a read.

I read this as someone who has started their first business within the last few months and am currently on a huge learning curve! I have a collection of business books but this is the first one that I have not only finished but also enjoyed.

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!

Do you need to be like the folks on The Apprentice or wade through business books as dull as ditch water to earn a living on your own account? Thankfully not, and if you read this you'll know why. It's as funny and easy to read as it is packed with practical advice. I already recommend this to people at my local Enterprise Club. The only critical point I make to them is - think long and hard before you price any of your products and services as low as this!

Make no mistake! Freedom from Bosses Forever is a serious book about small business development. True, the treatment of the topic is jovial and the text is peppered with anecdotes and good jokes. But what it's clear is that what's in front of us is a uniquely rich material reflecting the experience of a seasoned entrepreneur and business support practitioner.

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.

I have to admit, I was skeptical! I've never read any of Tony Robinson's works before, and I don't usually purchase a book based on reviews. I'm the type of person that buys the book because the first chapter hooks me. Well, I downloaded this to my Kindle and I skipped the stuff in the front (don't worry, I went back and read it after I finished the book), and I dove into the first chapter.

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!

Being retired, I read this book just for its humour. It certainly succeeded in that respect as the jokes and situations were to my liking. However, the important messages came across and I have spent the weeks since I read the book, telling my friends that the country is simply doing the wrong things. Why do we spend tens of thousands of pounds to create one job in the big, high tech, industries when a few hundred would give the small entrepreneur the time to become established? Why don't we support small business and encourage the ideas that come from people of all ages?
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.
