Reviews - What do customers think about The guide to IT contracting?

The Guide to IT Contracting  Sep 24, 2008
The Guide to IT Contracting is a well written, in-depth book about everything you need to know about starting, growing, and sustaining an IT contracting business. It contains a thorough look at all aspects, including practical information, seen as common sense, but so often overlooked by entrepreneurs who work toward an ideal, based mainly on expertise in the field. The information is well organized and very readable. The essence of this book is a good foundation for the planning and start of any business. The author uncovers many unforeseen facets of starting and continuing a successful business. It is as valuable as an on-site mentor who emphasizes professionalism and quality service.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has thought about working as an independent contractor. Consultants could improve their services with this book as a guide. The clear advice and insight that the author offers can stimulate the pursuit of your interest, and detail the pitfalls that might be avoided. The section on "Investment for Financial Freedom" is an important part of self-employment, and adds further value to this total business picture.
Great resource  Sep 22, 2008
Anyone currently working as or considering becoming an IT contractor should read this book. There is great advice for solving and even avoiding problems. Although written in the UK, much of the information in this book can be applied anywhere. It covers everything from setting up a business and finding work to planning for retirement and maintaining professionalism.
The Ultimate UK Guide to IT Contracting  Sep 16, 2008
In his book, The Guide to IT Contracting, Samuel Blankton informs the reader on how to become an IT Contractor. He gives them information to help determine if they would be a good contractor, he provides instructions on how to setup their business and ensuring they know how to acquire benefits for their employees, how to acquire and maintain business and even goes so far as to advise the reader on how to handle their money.

The book is easy to follow and can be understood by non-IT readers. He has done a wonderful job of writing and in-depth process on how to get an IT business up and running and keeping it that way. He gives the reader every tidbit of information they need and then some.
The IT Contractor's best friend  Sep 13, 2008
"The Guide to IT Contracting" is a must-have for anyone with an interest in the IT contracting world, and then some. Covering pretty much everything you need to know about being an IT contractor, Samuel Blankson has created a guide that will outshine any other of its kind.

Not only does he explain exactly what to expect once you enter the field, Blankson then continues to coach you on how to make the most of it. Samuel Blankson has written an IT Contracting Bible that, even when you're successful and completely satisfied with your IT contracting career, you will keep with you to read over and challenge yourself to improve.

Blankson knows what he's writing about, and "The Guide to IT Contracting" will bring you through many doubts or problems that you may encounter, in or out of the world of technology.
A Must Have For Anyone Looking Into This Profitable Career  Aug 27, 2008
IT is one of the strongest growing fields in the workforce today and shows no sign of slowing. This book gives you all the information you need to get started in this exciting field with detailed breakdowns of all of the elements you need to know to be an expert. Regardless of your current skill set and knowledge on the subject you will find information that will benefit you in your chosen career. For independent IT contractors this book is a must and it covers every aspect from legal regulations and tax laws to handling yourself in corporate situations. While the legalities and tax information lean heavily to British law even that information will help people from any country in knowing what to look for in their own legal systems and tax laws in order to be effective and prosperous in this lucrative career.

This book can be very helpful to businesses looking to hire independent contractors for IT work as well. That is an even newer field than IT work itself and many business people who are experienced in the efforts of hiring employees feel out of their element when contracting people to work on a contract basis. This book is a great guideline to the many aspects their contractors will deal with and why they desire certain aspects that may seem foreign to corporate individuals unused to dealing with independent contractors.
