Who'd be a freelancer?,
This review is from: How to succeed as a Freelancer in Publishing: The Complete Guide (Paperback)
A very useful book containing information that could be sensibly applied to any freelance business, not necessarily just in publishing. It's refreshing to find a book written by British people, aimed at the British industry/market. So many similar books these days are aimed at either the US or Global markets.
The book is full of common sense tips and friendly anecdotes. Rather than offering any groundbreaking new ideas, it does offer a certain amount of support and confidence building. It shows that launching a business can be done, whatever your circumstances. Those who are wavering on the point of 'should I? / shouldn't I?' could use this book to help them decide whether or not the business is right for them. It demonstrates the good and bad side of freelancing.
All in all, a good read, and something to keep on the shelf to dip in and out of in the future.
