Snappy and practical, this guide to quitting your job at the "e-mail-satura ted, meeting-happy cube farm" will prove indispensable to any young profess ional itching to strike out on her own. Goodman, a successful freelance wri ter, aims her book at women between 25 and 35, but young men will likely fi nd her advice (always send a thank you note after an informational intervie w; play it cool if you snort coffee out your nose) just as relevant. From " sussing out the gigs" to guidance on taxes and health insurance to battling "the inertia that binds one's derriere to the sofa like a tongue to a froz en flagpole," Goodman covers all the aspects of going solo. A "Show Me the Money" section at the end of each chapter gives readers money-saving tips ( eat all the food in your fridge before it "liquefies or grows spores"), and checklists covering steps readers must take before becoming self-employed. Goodman's advice is applicable to a broad range of careers, though the non -profit and international travel chapters are useful primarily for pointing to other, more in-depth sources. Goodman's tone is realistic-taking into a ccount the obstacles facing a generation burdened early by debt-but she ret ains a sense of humor, making this information-dense guide an encouraging, buoyant lifesaver.
