From Booklist:

There seems to be no dearth of suggestions for making money at home, as the growing number of books devoted to the topic proves. But how many of these ideas are practical and creative at the same time? The experienced team of Sanders and Bullen not only describes more than 100 of the more unusual business vocations, but also interviews quite a few practitioners and lists specific resources to consult. Each entry includes a lengthy explanation of the job, and its duties and responsibilities, along with a top tip (e.g., for aspiring dog or cat breeders, it's suggested as an adjunct to other pet-related businesses, not as a solo venture), getting started, and the going rate. Sure to provoke chuckles are some of the recommendations, albeit all bona fide, such as a garden goose^-wear designer (yes, for concrete birds) and a beekeeper (no stings in this thought). Good information, well presented. Barbara Jacobs
