Spare Room Start Up, reviewed by Alex Johnson

“Spare Room Start Up is the new book from Enterprise Nation supremo Emma Jones published by Harriman House. The book covers pretty much everything you need to know to start up a business from home and includes plenty of examples of shedworkers (including me and this site). It’s nicely designed which is always a good start, with plenty of photos and attractive imagery, a ‘How to’ book which doesn’t look like the usual drab ‘How to’ books.

But it’s also a cracking read, broken down into three main sections, business, lifestyle and technology, and most importantly with a huge number of case studies so you can see how other people have done it. I suspect this will become the first book anybody thinking of working from home will buy and it deserves to be really rather successful.”
