    I’ve been a long-time fan of the authors’ website, the RatRaceRebellion, and when I had an opportunity to read their newest book, I jumped on it. I’ve read lots of “work at home” books, and they all said basically the same things. Durst’s and Haaren’s new book doesn’t dwell on the same old things that are in the other books; instead, it jumps right to the heart of what all new home-based workers want to know – where to find work. Not only do the authors list a multitude of websites offering work-at-home opportunities, they’ve checked out every one of the websites, plus they’ve organized the listing into job types (they’ve included categories such as “merchandiser” and “notary” that are more “work FROM home). They’ve even included a category of websites for work in the “adult” industry (if you’re so inclined)!
    The authors have also done a great job showing readers how to do effective Google and Craigslist searches for work, and they tell what to look for in order to avoid scams.
    All in all, this is a very well-written and extremely well-organized book about how to find a good home-based job and avoid all the scams out there. I highly recommend it!

    I bought “Work at Home Now” because I’m struggling with getting well after surgery and would love to make some money from home. Unfortunately, so would tons of other people. Work at home now has some useful tips at the beginning, like search phrases to use to avoid the scams, and how to spot legit opportunities. The most helpful sections show websites by job-type available. Note: Many of the websites listed require experience in a specific field. I have business clerical experience, and there aren’t many jobs out there for people with my skill set. I have applied where I could, and have heard nothing. Also, many of the sites don’t have positions open right now, and aren’t likely to for some time. The long and the short of it? Borrow this book from a friend or the library. It’s a good general reference, but you will likely only have about 10 places to which you can apply, and probably won’t hear from them for the next year or two.

    I already knew some of the basic information about working from home, so about half of the book was no news to me. However, the sources of jobs, websites, etc. by themselves are reason enough to buy the book.
    A good many of the jobs hire people not as employees but as consultants–this means you are your own boss. This is not a bad thing–just remember the following: regular employees pay half of their FICA taxes, and their employers pay the other half; if you are your own employer (a consultant) you must pay BOTH halves of that tax. And you have to pay for your own health insurance, of course. So think it over thoroughly before you choose to be a consultant/contractor.
    If you want to work out of your home, this is definitely the book for you. If you want to start your own home business, look elsewhere.
