  • The book does offer quite good information which you must not have read elsewhere.

What wasn’t Good

  • The book was too short to guide you completely on the relevant subject.
  • I felt that the last three-four chapters were quite irrelevant in the context of Freelancing. Well, the relevant part of the book winds up in around ninety-six pages. I wished that the authors have given out more elaboration in the case of pyjama categories.
  • Further, the book has a lot of statistical information instead of pertinent freelance material.
