    Very Useful Information for Learning to Work from Home

    This book provides very useful information on different jobs you can do from home. It's different from the other work-at-home books because it also provides a list of colleges where you can obtain the education necessary for each job. I recommend this book to those who are interested in working from home, and/or are interested in distance learning.

    Extremely Recommended (You¿ll regret if you miss it!),

    Finally, there is a book that actually shows its readers how to train at home to work at home. Out of all books that 'teach' to work at home, McGarry's is probably one of the very best. It is comprehensive, resourceful, extremely interesting and fun to read. A fantastic resource that deserves the best spot on your bookshelf. Frankly speaking, I've never read a book written with such careful resourcefulness. The author's love for work-at-home careers truly shines through every page she writes. This book includes 27 top work-at-home careers (that's what she calls it due to the notorious reputation of 'home business' term), of which a few might not sound familiar to you. I didn't know what 'scoping' meant until I read the well-written and easy-to-grasp description. McGarry cleverly and wittily describes what the career entails, where to get trained (via distance learning--online and offline) and how much the tuition costs. She also includes a chock full of information of additional resources, such as web sites, books and e-books. In addition to its resourcefulness, I also like this book?s friendly and straight-to-the-heart writing style. As a work-at-homer herself, the author shares her joy and encourages others to choose the one vocation that fits the working at home lifestyle. You?ll be inspired to start your home career immediately with confidence. If you need a really good book about working at home, this is definitely not the one you?d want to miss. It will help you hit the ground running. I, for sure, will keep this book within reach because I will keep returning from time to time. Reviewed by Jennie S. Bev, a San Francisco-based author, business coach and instructional designer. She is the author of Guide to Become a Management Consultant, principal of and editor-in-chief of
