    A reviewer

    I purchased this book along with Deduct It! 'both published by Nolo Press'. This book covers much of the same tax information in Deduct It!, however that book does a much better job of it. This book focuses on the 'how to' of being self-employed, and would be greatly helpful to someone starting a new business who is unsure about set up, record-keeping, etc. For anyone else who has already been in small business for a while, there isn't much new here. A good book--well written--just not for everyone.
