I really enjoyed this book. It provides good information about a range of small business topics. There is an especially good discussion of buying a business and due diligence.

Great book, would recommend it to anyone who wants to make money at a small business.

An excellent book for the newly self-employed! I think it makes a great combination with my own workbook about how entrepreneurs can use simple publicity techniques to distinguish themselves and their services among a very crowded market
