This books a great overview of how to get started as a freelancer. It's filled with practical advice for a wide range of subjects, from what you need to become a freelancer, to how to network , to some very useful tips for contracts.

Jun 25, sonich rated it really liked it Shelves: A LOT. Nov 02, Karen N. Lots of valuable information and advice. However it was not my favorite book on the subject. It was also a bit dry. It felt like a good reference book rather than a book that you would sit down and read from start to finish.
I'd say it this would be a great book for those who are starting out in the graphic design business. I just picked up this book hoping I could gain some new insight working as a freelancer, but most of what was written was nothing new.
For an alternative, I would actually re Lots of valuable information and advice. For an alternative, I would actually recommend "How to become a graphic designer without losing your soul" by Adrian Shaughnessy.
