    Needs More Detail

    I really think that this is a good book to help people to figure out what business(es) to start from home. The only thing that I don't like is that there's nothing to help you take it to the next level. Every business should have a description (like it does) and contact information for organizations/associations that could help you learn more about starting up this type of business. Some are obvious, but many aren't.
