Review

Do you own a home computer? Do you need extra money? If the answer to both of these questions is yes, then this is the book for you. After two excellent chapters of general introduction, Waxman explores six fields in which you can make money with a personal computer: freelance writing, service bureau, packaged programs, contract programming, consulting, and system houses. You can read this book in two ways. If you know what field you want to work in but aren’t sure of how to go about it, read the Introduction and Chapter 1 and then jump to the chapter on the specific job you wish to do. If you want to moonlight but don’t know what you want to do, read the whole book. It’s an easy read — no difficult technical jargon — and it has a lot of advice geared specifically to Canadians.
