I purchased this and Creative, Inc (which I haven't finished yet) to see if I would like to do crafty things or pursue graphic design. This book discouraged me from doing the crafty side of things. It isn't at all a downer but when it was talking about trade shows and making the same thing over and over and over, it made me realize I would prefer something with more variety.
Overall, it was a good read and it helped me decide which way to head. If you are serious about starting your craft business, I say give it a read. It will help you on your path or give you a reality check before you invest cash in your dream.
I am loathe to whine more about the fonts and colors used, but it was a BIG turn off for me and REALLY lessened my enjoyment of this book. The font was an odd choice - too round and hard to read for the body of a book. Also, the colors choices did not have enough contrast - teal and olive is cool looking, but made it awkward and straining to read. This is a big deal, more so than the designer may have thought.
Bit of advice, have people of all ages look at a book if you are designing it with anything besides one of the dozen or so standard copy fonts or a color of text besides black. I am middle-aged with trifocals (sigh-I outed myself as old) and got a headache from eye strain.
Font rant over - the info within the pages is great. Nicely laid out, great info for those starting a business or double checking that what they are currently doing is on track.
If they ever reprint this in normal readable colors, I would highly recommend it. As it is, I would try and find her info online.
