    Book details


Fifth Edition--Revised and Expanded. A new edition of the classic guidebook that started the "Working From Home" revolution.

Paul and Sarah Edwards have completely updated their bestselling home-office guide to meet the needs of today's millions of small-business people.

This comprehensive update of America's premier guide to home-based employment features complete and easy-to-follow advice on:
-- equipping and computerizing the up-to-date home office;
-- funding your venture--and staying out of debt;
-- keeping your work and personal life separate;
-- making cyberspace work for your individual business needs, and much more.
"No home office is complete without a copy of Working From Home." --Bernadette Grey, Home Office Computing

"If I had to choose only one book for my home-office reference shelf, this is the one I would choose. It's thorough, up-to-date, informed by detailed research, user-friendly, and fun to read." --Thomas E. Miller, National Work-at-Home Survey

"No one knows the working-from-home field like Paul and Sarah Edwards." --Gil Gordon, Telecommuting Review

The authors, business writers (e.g, Finding Your Perfect Work, Tarcher, 1998) and popular hosts of a radio and a TV show, revise and expand this fifth edition of a super resource that responds to the rapidly increasing work-at-home population, estimated at over seven and a half million. Now tightly integrated with Internet resources, the book covers many highly useful topics, including choosing at-home work as a way of life, outfitting and equipping a home office, managing an office and oneself while working at home, and how to price a product or service and sell the home business. The section on legal advice regarding taxes, insurance, liability, and permits is alone worth the purchase for anyone considering or already involved in making a living from home. With increasing access to information via the Internet and rapidly evolving electronic commerce, more people are taking the plunge and leaving the nine-to-five routine. A definite purchase for all libraries, especially public libraries.ADale F.

Review Text

  • By A customer on March 19, 1999

    Several years ago, when it looked like my dream of working from my home could become reality, I picked up this book. (Then in its third edition.) It became my instruction manual for making the transition from small cubicle in a very large office building to a large (bedroom sized) office in my smallish home. Everything you need is there, from the philosophical (how do I live and work under the same roof?) to the practical (do I need a variance in my community), from the business of business (how do I attract business?), to the work of work (how do I organize all this clutter?). Its like a friendly office manager that knows everything. The fourth edition is technologically updated, and every bit as helpful. Even now that my business is somewhat established, I find the book especially useful as a first-place-to-look-reference for "do I need to worry about this" type questions.There are only two pieces of advise I can give those of you contemplating working from home: spend all your money on a comfortable office chair, and buy this book.

    I am starting to think that this is the best book so far onon all the aspects of working from home. They cover everything well and it is often looked over and over for tips. I keep it next to my computer.

  • By A customer on October 27, 1997

    Although there weren't as many individual business ideas in this book as I had hoped, this book was an amazing addition to my library. It helped me understand everything from the legal aspects of starting a business, to finding financing to setting up my office. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is just starting out in a home based business or who is bringing their work home from the office!

  • By A customer on September 11, 1998

    I thought this book gave a lot of great tips about starting and maintaining a home business. It has helped me succeed in what I do, and I truly beleive that anyone can work at home. Go for it! It's well worth the investment!

    (Maybe 2 stars is a little harsh, but I'm not sure I can change it)The book is relatively thick. It's full of the kind of detail I find somewhat tedious and a deterrent to reading cover to cover - but what to me is tedious might strike you as comprehensive. In any case it seems reference oriented.There's a little too much pointlessly obvious and irrelevant detail (e.g section on the difference between a scanner and digital camera; a line drawing of how to set up an item of folding furniture which isn't even referred to in the text). Frequently sprinkled contact details for particular companies give it the feel of advertainment at times (eg the page dedicated to detailing modular furnings available from one retailer, complete with price tags and the supplier's web and phone details). It is in all ways US-centric, which is either an advantage or a disadvantage depending on your location.Though on first look (I do own it) I found little to make me want to actually read the book, it might also as a passable 'wide but shallow' quick reference, especially if you're in the US.It might also make an OK first book on the topic. I would recommend however, that the prospective reader preferentially (or at least additionally) purchase a number of more succinct, specifically targeted books which explore key topics in depth.

    This book is solid and helps you in many different areas that you will need when staying home and pursuing an in home business. I was very satisfied with this book and would recommend it to anyone in this situation. Thank you!

    I was extremely pleased with all aspects of the transaction. The product was exactly what I was looking for, it was in excellent condition, it was at a great price, and the delivery was fast.
