Often, books that offer "101 tips" or "201 strategies" end up being a hodge-podge of interesting, yet unconnected ideas. In most cases, you are lucky to find even a handful of ideas you can actually use. This is not one of those books. Author Lisa Kanarek does a fabulous job of organizing her ideas into useful categories. It reads as if the author and her editors decided that if the majority of home office workers could not use a secret, it would not make the book. The book’s only glaring problem is minor: two tips are identical (numbers 29 and 72: create a Web site). Fortunately, Kanarek followed her own advice (Tip #102 "Always give more than expected"), so readers expecting 101 secrets will not feel shortchanged. And secret 103 comes from getAbstract - this book is required reading for anyone working from home.
