If you're thinking of setting up a design studio -this is a fantastic foundation. I feel energised now to take on my mission with this book outline. Even though I'm still unsure which fee structure to go with, such an informative starting point. Thank you
Reviewed in Australia on 27 February 2016
So most of the stuff I knew already as I've been researching this stuff for years (not taking the jump as he talks about). but there was still elements in there about pricing, marketing, taking and rejecting jobs which is good. Eric really opened himself up and his business practices to the world here when usually architects are so guarded about such info. I think it's probably a great beginners guide to starting up an architectural / design practice and as I said before would be a great thing to read in 5th year uni so people can maybe chart out a course to starting up. He talks about the ways you can approach things, pros and cons to this, the way he went about doing things and where he stuffed up.

Interesting original ideasReviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 September 2018
Refreshingly original and contemporary content and ideas that prompt you to explore and consider what an architecture studio can offer their clients and the wider public. A nice change and addition to the other more dry books on setting up a practice. I also enjoyed the Author’s YouTube channel which gives you a taste for his genuine interest in doing things better and his relaxed style with easy to absorb content.
Excellent - not just for architectsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 February 2016
I've read volumes 1 and 2 - they're both real gems. Unlike many business books, these ones really feel like they have been written for the benefit of the reader rather than the author, in an open, honest and engaging way. Full of insights and practical advice, and at about £10 each great value for money (and possibly the best investment budding freelancers or entrepreneurs can make, as i'll save lots on research and figuring things out). I'm not even an architect - architecture is just a passing interest of mine, so I stumbled upon these books by chance - but 90% of the advice applies to any design or knowledge-based field. Thank you and well done.
Most Informative and well articulatedReviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 March 2017
It has sparked my intrigue to pursue my own design practice, highly recommended to all architects, even those not thinking to pursue the route of setting up their own practice

Nice advices to those who chase and are about to start their own business, since in this field lately the wolves are loose outside.
