Good except the lip smacking

Sorry Mike Monteiro, you really should have hired a professional to read your book for you. You also need better recording equipment. It was difficult to listen to this book when the narrator is constantly making lip smacking and spit slurping noises while monotonously droning through their own words.

That said, the book is a must have for all designers, art directors, creatives, or anyone who works with any of the above. Highly recommended.

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.
