About the Book
An idiosyncratic view of what it takes to become an independent consultant. Written by someone who has been an independent for 16 years. This information is aimed at those who are now comfortably salaried, but who might look with interest, envy, or inspiration at their co-workers who are independent, and think: could I do it? Is "working for yourself" all that much better? Well, yes and no. Here are some practical answers, based on innumerable conversations with other independents, myself, and people who are thinking of becoming an independent. I hope it helps.
