In terms of practical information there isn't that much. It is mainly a listing of useful websites to support each aspect of that particular chapter.
Overall, a good introduction and an encouragement to start your own business but a light read and not the definitive book that many 5 to 9'ers will be after.
Even when it touches on areas such as TAX, and other legalities, you're simply directed to a list of web sites that are of more use.
Perhaps I had unrealistic expectations, but unless you have real difficulties using web search, there is likely better places to look than 5 to 9.
This is more of the same, but focusses a bit more on a variety of home businesses that were set up alongside paid employment.
If you are interested in setting your own business up, then this book has plenty of ideas and should provide you with plenty of motivation and support
The book gives sound business advice without being too detailed and dull (like a lot of business books I have read). All in all an enjoyable, very readable and very useful book for anyone setting up a business in their spare time.
There is nothing wrong with this book per se - it's attractively presented and no doubt there will be some people who find it useful.
I was hoping to get a book that gave in-depth business start-up advice but I didn't think it did this. The main part of the book is devoted to ideas for businesses that other people have started in their spare time. Great promotion for those businesses, but there's no real detail.
Many of the ideas are applicable only to a select number of people, eg you're only going to be able to set yourself up as a lawyer if you're already a qualified lawyer and to me, you can't be a pig farmer only when you come home from your main job because animals need care through the daytime too!
The book contains lots of links to useful websites, but for me, it just didn't give me the specific advice on business plans, financing, marketing etc that I was after.
