5.0 out of 5 stars Not only for Illustrators, 11 April 2008
Anyone looking for a book on how to generate ideas and general tips on how to produce artwork better carries on searching. This book deals with the practical aspect of freelance illustrating and provides (golden) tips on how to set yourself up, how to let the world know of your existence, promoting your work, keeping in touch with existing clients, getting paid and a whole host of other stuff. As such, I don't think this book is not only suitable for people wanting to make a career in illustrating. Graphic designers, copywriters, etc... will, without a doubt, also benefit from this material.

It contains an amazing amount of useful information (In fact, not a single page is wasted). It's witty style makes it very easy and pleasurable to read. It's also very motivating in starting you off with all the horrible work (i.e. cold calling, chasing payment,l etc...) associated with running your own business. This book is a must have for anyone serious about freelancing. Well done Max.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mindless shooting, 11 Dec. 2006
This review is from: Halo: The Flood (Paperback)
I've never played Halo but merely read the books because of my huge interest in SF. Still, I find myself agreeing with the majority of previous reviews; the two Halo books written by Eric Nylund were a lot better.

In my view, "The Flood" is just a bad... Yes there is some story line in it, but the bulk of the book seens to be concentrating on one Spartan shooting alien after alien to bits. To me, this book only has value because it fits in a story line spread over multiple books. If this was a stand alone story, I would probably never have finished it...
