Great resource for first time homeschoolers especially.
The other 50% of the value of the book came from the extensive list of links in the appendix. I do think this has some value, although you could find most on your own. If you can find a used copy of the book or share one with a friend then you'll get a deal.
Ultimately, if you're lost and haven't done any research at all, or are struggling, then the regimented lecture-style (ironically very traditional teacher-like) format might help you. If your Google Fu is good then you can save yourself some money, since you'll need to search for all the relevant information on your own anyway.
Moreau, an advisor and coach for homeschool families, offers a step by step plan to starting homeschooling, perfect for those wondering how to begin. She covers topics such as connecting with other homeschoolers, homeschooling legally, figuring out what method of education you are most comfortable with, gathering resources, creating a schedule. and talking to your family about your choice, and storing your records and keepsakes.
While those who have been homeschooling a while will probably adapt their approach and make changes, "Suddenly Homeschooling" does offer a solid guide to getting started.
