If you watch the videos above, that is exactly how he writes...my wife often gave me a weird look when I blurted out laughing.

First off, this book is an easy read. I think I read the whole thing in less than 4 hours. What makes it particularly easy, for me though, is the conversation style Mike uses in his writing. If you watch the videos above, that is exactly how he writes...my wife often gave me a weird look when I blurted out laughing. Again, if you follow Mike's musings at all, you understand why.

Hands down, this book is worth it's weight in gold because of the confidence that it will build. The chapters on what to charge for work, contracts and sticking to your process makes one feel that they are not on an island as we all deal with these same issues, but Mike will fire you up to deal with it professionally and in a manner that will make you look like an even bigger asset to the client or proposed client. And in the end, if you don't get the client, you can feel confident that you did everything that you wanted to do to make it happen and can roll on to the next one without any regret.

I definitely recommend reading this one.

I've just completed this book (which is saying something by itself because of my attention span) and I was very pleased. As an 11 year veteran and small business owner it's spot on. It addresses the common problems with designers and describes break downs and solutions for client problems. Mike really understands design, has a healthy respect and appreciation for it and is not afraid to speak his mind.

You have to read this book if you hope to make a living as a designer. It's funny, informative and dang useful. However, do a websearch for this book, it's literally twice as expensive as of this writing if you get it on Amazon.

Mike does a great job of summing up web design here. What I was surprised about is how he details how designers should work--it's almost as if the title should have been--design is a business. Great book!
