I've been a long-time fan of the authors' website, the RatRaceRebellion, and when I had an opportunity to read their newest book, I jumped on it. I've read lots of "work at home" books, and they all said basically the same things. Durst's and Haaren's new book doesn't dwell on the same old things that are in the other books; instead, it jumps right to the heart of what all new home-based workers want to know - where to find work. Not only do the authors list a multitude of websites offering work-at-home opportunities, they've checked out every one of the websites, plus they've organized the listing into job types (they've included categories such as "merchandiser" and "notary" that are more "work FROM home). They've even included a category of websites for work in the "adult" industry (if you're so inclined)!
The authors have also done a great job showing readers how to do effective Google and Craigslist searches for work, and they tell what to look for in order to avoid scams.
All in all, this is a very well-written and extremely well-organized book about how to find a good home-based job and avoid all the scams out there. I highly recommend it!

I bought "Work at Home Now" because I'm struggling with getting well after surgery and would love to make some money from home. Unfortunately, so would tons of other people. Work at home now has some useful tips at the beginning, like search phrases to use to avoid the scams, and how to spot legit opportunities. The most helpful sections show websites by job-type available. Note: Many of the websites listed require experience in a specific field. I have business clerical experience, and there aren't many jobs out there for people with my skill set. I have applied where I could, and have heard nothing. Also, many of the sites don't have positions open right now, and aren't likely to for some time. The long and the short of it? Borrow this book from a friend or the library. It's a good general reference, but you will likely only have about 10 places to which you can apply, and probably won't hear from them for the next year or two.

More than ever, folks grasp for any life raft floating in economically choppy waters, making fodder for scam artists of all kinds. This book is not only a legitimate life ring, it also helps us ward off those eager opportunists.

Seldom have I read a how-to book that contains worthwhile information from beginning to end. A kind of toolkit, the book is logically organized, clearly written in non-technical terms. Although there are no guarantees of employment, everything readers need to have a decent chance at finding meaningful work-at-home is at their fingertips.

Disability ended my rat race career, but my mouth and brain work just fine. I've spent a lot of time looking for telecommuting positions, easily finding scams, but few legit opportunities. Although, through reading Durst and Haaren's ratracerebellion newsletter, I trusted the authors' credentials, I doubted the book would present anything more than warmed over, rehashed advice. I was truly flabbergasted by just how many possibilites there are for someone with a lifetime of skills and a long work history. I can look foward to being useful again. For that, this book is priceless.

I already knew some of the basic information about working from home, so about half of the book was no news to me. However, the sources of jobs, websites, etc. by themselves are reason enough to buy the book.
A good many of the jobs hire people not as employees but as consultants--this means you are your own boss. This is not a bad thing--just remember the following: regular employees pay half of their FICA taxes, and their employers pay the other half; if you are your own employer (a consultant) you must pay BOTH halves of that tax. And you have to pay for your own health insurance, of course. So think it over thoroughly before you choose to be a consultant/contractor.
If you want to work out of your home, this is definitely the book for you. If you want to start your own home business, look elsewhere.

I won this book in a drawing. I was planning to buy it anyways because it is written by two very experienced authors. Christine Durst and Michael Haaren are highly qualified individuals who have done some amazing analysis on this fast growing segment of the job market. They have done the research and have included many up to the minute reviews of legitimate work at home/telecommute companies. This book is so very well organized. It takes you through the steps to determine if you are really ready to take on the challenge and rewards of working from home. This book is a great resource for the new job seeker as well as the seasoned professional looking for inspiration and guidance as they consider the logistics of working from home. I would recommend this for everyone.

I bought this book almost out of desperation... I am a self-admitted introvert and after losing a few jobs due in part to "personality conflicts" with people on the job who dont understand my work style and let it be known that I was not welcome in their little "work cliques", I began to realize that I have to find a way to get out of the "rat race" and work from home where I can have some peace, and leave the silliness and politics behind.

I took some of my unemployment check and invested it in this book...best investment I ever made! From the very beginning the book gave some real, practical advice and tips you can really use...the authors are "straight shooters" and have only included information that is real, relevant, and useful. I have only gotten to chapter 3 and after I put the tips already given to practice (internet search, how to avoid scams, WAH assessment) I was SO IMPRESSED with the results of some real, legit WAH jobs that I can actually do that I just now felt totally obligated to stop my job search and write this review out of appreciation, and to let others know this book has really been helpful to me.

I was feeling depressed about my WAH job search before this book, but after I used some of the tips in the book I felt so much more motivated in my WAH job search to find something that meets my needs and qualifications, that I am working well into the night when I would have usually quit for the evening.

I want to say PLEASE give this book a try if you really want to work from home, and dont skip around! The whole book has great info, so read it from start to finish, and I cant wait to finish this book too. I believe it is VERY EFFECTIVE, especially for people with disabilities or people who really need to work from home.
