3.0 out of 5 stars So-so..., February 23, 2011
This review is from: Creative, Inc.: The Ultimate Guide to Running a Successful Freelance Business (Paperback)
This isn't the ultimate guide to freelancing. It's a cute book with inspirational stories and huge tabbed paragraphs. Actually, the huge tab is what I found most upsetting...because honestly, for designers you'd like one of the ladies would know better than to do that. It's such an eyesore.

The list of references and go-to places for information is helpful though, and I give the book credit for that but a lot of this book is fluff and common sense. A lot of the information in this book can be obtained through general research elsewhere. And for a lot of chapters, I felt that this guide was like having a camp counselor talk to me about accepting my emotions and expressing my feelings... not really getting down to the nitty-gritty.

This book is for very light beginners, ones who most likely haven't gone to school for design. Not that, to become a great designer you need a great degree or anything but going to school for this stuff definitely exposes you already to at least having a starting knowledge...a starting knowledge that's more than this little cute book can offer.

All in all, this book is disappointing in terms of content. Cute layout with huge tabbed paragraphs...seriously, those tabs should have been halved.
