As a "creative type" (according to my boss, an accountant), I'm not someone with a good head for business. So when I decided to begin the process of taking my crafting hobby to the next level, I picked up some books to learn what I should and shouldn't be doing. Of the three books I chose, this was the one that seemed to be written for business people who are getting into the crafting business. It immediately got so in-depth with forms that need to be filed, taxes, and other details that it lost me. If you have a crafting business that you're looking to expand upon, this is the book for you, but if you're a creative type who is just starting out, go with something else.
