Overall, this is a quick read with fantastic advice, guidance and feedback on how to successfully start a consulting business, and then maintain it. I plan to reference this book in the early stages and throughout as a reminder to not get too settled in - and to always market!
There is really not all that much new in this edition, but it is worth reading again. There is more wisdom in this book than you are likely to pick up in one reading. Rereading the text after a few years, with more experience, reminds you of those things you probably should be doing.
This is a good book in terms of both content and style. It's as easy to read as a novel.
Very highly recommended.
Still, i did get some great ideas and for $11 definitely a worthwhile (easy) read for those starting in the business. The advice on pricing your services and writing proposals (though I already had a bit of experience) worth the price of the book. I felt it reinforced the path I was already taking and made me postpone launch for another couple of months until my house is fully in order. It also inspired me to purchase his other book Million Dollar Consulting which I plan to start reading today. Please forgive the grammar errors its 5am and I'm just finishing my first cup of coffee...
