Brilliant, bright and extremely useful.

Mike tells it like it is. Here's how to sport a healthy web / design business. His advice is sound and valid. I agree a 100% with him, as it's the way I've run my own business and dealt with clients since I started in 2009. It's what has made my business profitable and stable while some of my "best" competitors have burnt their noses on bad clients, big projects that drag on forever, doing too much free work due to lack of clear scope at project initiation etc etc etc.

He gives great advice on how to deal with problematic clients, how to charge, what to charge, what to look out for, how to work with freelancers, and more. Well, basically it's how to deal with all the stuff most web / designers struggle with.

I have already recommended this book to three people, all of whom I know will benefit greatly from it. One of them has already praised it as much as I do.

It's extremely useful and to the point.

A must read for all designers

Great take always.
The most importants ones for me today:
- When the budget is low: meet the budget by narrowing the scope, not changing your processes (e.g. Dropping research)
- When writing a client contract: Intellectual Property transfers on full payment
- When hiring: tell them honestly where you think their skills are today and where they should be in 6 months
