Working Alone: Words of Wisdom for the Self-Employed
Outstanding, for a start...
I am a consultant, working by myself (president and chief bottle-washer) out of my home in suburban Baltimore. I've heard good things about this book, but was unable to locate a copy until last week. I was finally able to get a (used) copy of Working Alone, and having read it and believed it thoroughly, it has earned an honored spot atop my desk, and will remain there indefinitely. This is a ...

Two Grooms And A Wedding (Kimani Romance)
It's a great book and i'm really happy that Isabella finally got a backbone and didn't marry the one that she thought would look good on paper, or to everybody else. As far as her best friend BOGUS.... Over all a good love story to tell the kids and grandkids one day if it ever happen in real life.

Adventures of a Bystander
Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management
"As a child I liked puddles; I still do" - P.D.
Drucker clearly explains how rampant inflation in post WW I Germany influenced the rise of the Nazi party and Hitler. This discussion should be required reading for every 14 year old child! I particularly liked his stories of Willem Paarboom, a sort of Dutch hedge-fund/investment manager who appeared to be a cross between a man and a raven. In his day, Herr Drucker was exposed to some truly ...
"Slick" is best first novel since "Catch 22"-truly a "must read!"
Though a long time, avid reader, this is my first ever book review. I felt compelled to write it, as in my opinion none of the critiques I've read so far on Slick, while generally quite positive, seemed adequate in overall literary perspective. In terms personal impact, I could only compare "Slick" with Joseph Heller's "Catch 22." I read this at 18, and it remains in my top ten. Not that the ...
Working for Yourself: Law & Taxes for Independent Contractors, Freelancers & Consultants
Stephen Fishman J.D.
Understanding tax implications made easier
Despite a good background in accounting, I found deciphering newer law and tax issues for a small business nearly overwhelming. After many visits to the IRS pages and several phone calls to their offices, I let my fingers do the walking and purchased Fishman's guide. How I wish I had started with this book. It is easy to understand, comprehensive enough for most small businesses, and organized ...
The 2-Second Commute: Join the Exploding Ranks of Freelance Virtual Assistants
Trade your time, knowledge, and advice for $ by working as a virtual assistant; or online teacher, coach, or consultant.
I loved this book. I spotted it while purusing the shelves in the business section at Barnes and Noble the other day. When I opened it up and skimmed the Table of Contents I found starting an online virtual assistance company requires the same skills and talents as starting an online coaching, teaching, or consulting practice. Even though at the time of my writing this review there are already 69 ...

I consider myself a fairly expert Windows admin, but still learned quite a lot from this book. Like other Windows books that Stanek has written, ...
In Due Time
This is a great read. The narrator makes you feel that you are there in Atlanta with the descriptions that are given. The characters seem very real as though you actually know them. I feel that the author has an exciting future ahead.

Samba: Integrating Unix and Windows
John D. Blair
Specialized Systems Consultants
Excellent! It's EASIER than you THINK!
Samba in a cinch. You pick up this book and within an hour you can have Samba running. There is really nothing to it. John Blair is a member of the Samba team, so he REALLY knows his stuff. He's also a remarkably good technical writer. All the details are here, and the index is great. If you need something that this book doesn't cover, then you're way beyond me! Have to setup Samba in a ...

Guerrilla Marketing for Consultants: Breakthrough Tactics for Winning Profitable Clients

I have spent 28 years as a consultant, 15 of these at a large firm (The MAC Group/Gemini Consulting, where I was a Senior Vice President) and the rest running my own boutique. Based on this experience, it's clear to me that the essence of marketing for consultants is creating a kind of gravitational pull which attracts clients to you. Advertising and knocking on doors just doesn't work. ...
Princeton Management Consultants Guide to Your New Job
Niels H. Nielsen
John Wiley & Sons
Why Didn't I Think of This?
I have read a lot of job search, resume-writing and networking books in my time. I have given seminars on all these topics; and I think this approach gets to the heart of the matter! Why didn't anyone write this before? Well, most of us don't want to think about "selling" ourselves. The job search must be strategic as well as tactical. Considering the stress of looking for a job, thank ...
