I found this book very informative with many professional examples. It gave me an insight into all the necessary steps to start my own woodworking business. Well worth the money!

This was a Christmas gift to my son, our family handyman who loves to dabble in wordworking. Family and friends have encouraged him to quit his job as an Engineer and do this full-time. He has accumulated an impressive collection of carpentry tools and books on "How to build....." (You name it and he has a book on how to build it.) Of all his books, this is the only one that provided him with a thorough insight of the business aspect of woodworking. He said this book is the only one that gave him the proper "business tools" to decide whether or not to make a career change. He hasn't made a career change yet, but reading this book has helped him understand the industry a lot better and what he will have to do to turn his hobby into a viable business to support his family.

I come from an art background, and I'm always a little worried about becoming the proverbial, "starving artist". This book provided me with a wealth of knowledge to get started on the right foot. I'm writing up my first year's business plan, creating a portfolio, and will begin marketing soon. This book is an excellent resource for anyone getting started.

I also bought this book with the idea of helping a friend with his efforts to launch his own woodworkign business. The book is well laid out and covers a lot of ground. I read it and passed it on to my friend, he has found it to be helpful along with the other books I bought for him!

Got the book quickly and in as good or better shape than advertised. The book however leaves a bit to be desired.
