"'The Money Book' lays out the key issues for workers who
don't have benefits. It hits on the major themes of saving
regularly, planning for retirement, and managing your taxes when
you, the worker, are ultimately responsible. Its conversational
tone makes it easily accessible for readers who aren't inclined to
read about how to crunch numbers and budget."
"The Money Book" is an indispensable survival guide that belongs on the desk of every independent worker who is willing do whatever it takes to achieve success.

"Through trial and error, veteran freelancers D'Agnese and Kiernan worked out a money-management system that allowed them to save for emergencies and retirement, pay off debt, buy benefits, cover their taxes and survive the droughts in business that seem an inevitable part of working for yourself.
They convey all this in a book that's irreverent and hugely entertaining."
"Developed from the personal experiences of the authors, this book is fun and relevant, with no other recent work quite comparable. Recommended for anyone who is self-employed now or is facing a new work-life situation."
