What I liked: Design’s great, and Meg covers just about any situation you could find yourself in. I feel like I understand a lot more about business.
What I didn’t like: It is really heavy on the business—true DIY folks are going to feel alienated. This book seems to focus on people for whom outsourcing production is a desirable goal and who don’t necessarily have skills before they have the desire to sell something. What ever happened to the love of craft?
What I learned: Stuff about taxes, invoices, trade shows, publicity and selling out.
