BOOK REVIEW: Work at Home 101: Your Work-at-Home Starting Point by Jill Hart

This is a short book. From what I can tell, it is an introduction to the longer Jill Hart book, So You Want to Be a Work-At-Home Mom: A Christian’s Guide to Starting a Home-Based Business. Work at Home 101 is 32 pages and available only on Kindle. So You Want to Be… is 224 pages and available only in paperback.

I’ve read only the short Kindle book. What caught my attention is how well it is written. Many times I find this short books also short on editing. This one isn’t. It is easy to read and professional sounding.

Although the book is relatively short, you’ll find some useful information about working at home. You’ll also find links to the author’s website and blog for additional information. There are several interviews of mother’s working at home.

The books, blog and website are Christian based and the author talks freely about God. I like that, too.

BOOK REVIEW: Insider Tips On Writing An Effective Cover Letter by Tom Nixon

I’m giving this book Four Stars out of Five, but I hope you will read my review in full so you won’t be surprised. If I could, I would give it Five Stars for content, Two Stars for presentation, and Two Stars because so much is left out.

I like what Mr. Nixon has to say and I think you’ll get your money’s worth as long as the price remains under $1.00. It is very short and the writing does not follow the author’s advice about writing cover letters. He may have not read his chapter titled, “Reread, Review, Revise,” because if he had, the book would have been easier to read.

Not only should the author demonstrate a good cover letter in his description of one, I think it would be nice to include an example or two.

This book is available in Kindle format on
