I've already started out as a freelancer but I bought this book in the hope that it would help me avoid making stupid mistakes. I was not disappointed. It proved to be a quick and easy read that was full of very useful advice. As a primer on the subject it would be very hard to beat. It provides you with a comprehensive guide to everything you need to consider if you are attracted to the idea of self-employment. The purchase price proved to be money well spent. I read it in a weekend and I am sure I will dip into it again from time to time, as I develop my business. It really is brilliant and I can recommend it highly.
