A very informative, fun, and quick read that has some solid tips on pricing your services as a freelancer. I'd recommend it to anyone (especially a freelance editor or copywriter) who's not sure what to charge or how to best deliver proposals or spot nickle-and-diming clients.

Solid 4. I picked up this book at the Editorial Freelance Association conference in 2016. Even though a significant amount of information in the book was information I had read before, the content was offered in a useful and coherent manner. I appreciated the anecdotes and examples provided, as well as the "equations" to pricing work. There are specific questions I have that weren't answered in this book though, which I'll have to search for elsewhere.

Very short informational book to help freelancers figure out what they should charge for their work. Unfortunately, I've heard all this advice before.
