This review is from: Working in the UnOffice: A Guide to Coworking for Indie Workers, Small Businesses, and Nonprofits (Paperback)
Frankly speaking, soon after I received the book and browsed it, I threw it right away as it made my eyes watery and pain when I read it. It is because the book was printed using small and tiny fonts. I thought I was so selfish, but when I asked my daughter to read it, she also have the same argument.
I have to admit that the title of the book is very good, but the printing quality is very bad.
The authors I believe had spent incredible time to write that book and had the intention to share their knowledge to the readers, but unfortunately I also believe that it does not meet the target.
In addition, I also ordered "I'm Outta Here", I am satisfied with the book.

This just came to our attention, so this response comes a little late. The publication standards for both the print and digital versions of Working in the UnOffice: A Guide to Coworking for Indie Workers, Small Businesses, and Nonprofits are pretty high. We're truly sorry you had a bad experience specifically, but we stand by the book and its production. If you bought the paperback, it might have been a glitch with the printer for your particular copy (though we've never had problems); the layout follows conventional guidelines for your typical 6X9-inch trade paperback-- which definitely does not include unreadable font. If you bought the e-book, the fonts are adjustable on your tablet or e-reader (the default might have been set really small). This is the first complaint about 'tiny fonts' we've received, but it sounds like an unfortunate outlier and not a reflection of the book.

Thank you for response. Because of limited books like the one you produced, I scanned some of articles of this book that I considered relevant then read it through the computer by adjusting the fonts. I have to acknowledge that the book is an excellent guidance for those who is going to run the Co-Working space operation. Apology if my comment disturbed you, but I believe it was a constructive and genuine comments. The comment was merely on the printing mode and not the content of the book.
