"I have enjoyed reading this book. In short, the content is about 20% pep talk, 20% reality check, with the remaining 60% being great advice and useful information...The Principles of Successful Freelancing gives great advice about what is really needed to be successful working for yourself."
-- Matthew Helmke, MatthewHelmke.net

"For anyone considering opening a freelance business, or who has recently begun offering consulting/freelance services, this guidebook provides an excellent introduction to the benefits and limitations of going it on your own. "
-- Ira Laefsky, Amazon.com

"...a straightforward read and very easy to follow along. It contains a wealth of good information as well as a number of interviews with successful freelancers...While The Principles Of Successful Freelancing cannot ensure success as a freelancer, not having it can guarantee that you will learn some of these lessons the hard way. I strongly recommend this book."

"The style is relaxed, but not at the expense of detail; there is no padding or patronising simplespeak, and readers are not left floundering in technospeak. The author achieves an excellent balance: easy to read and provides a detailed, comprehensive account of everything one needs to know about freelancing."
