Escape from Cubicle Nation: From Corporate Prisoner to Thriving Entrepreneur
by Pamela Slim
PROS: A good, friendly book that covers the process, psychology, and issues of starting one's own business. Many personal and general insights are provided.
CONS: Occasional odd metaphors and "pop-culture" elements can distract. The book does not cover everything about your own business in depth – but does advise where to go for in-depth information.
SUMMARY: An excellent, broad guide mixing psychology, encouragement, and advice for starting your own business.
