Whether you have followed Chris Guillebeau's "Art of Nonconformity" blog or not (though I encourage you to do so), there is a huge amount of useful information and inspiration packed into this book and he generously adds more for free on his website for the book.

The great thing about "The $100 Startup" is the step-by-step approach designed to increase your comfort with starting a business and reduce your fears. By encouraging the reader to begin a low investment business around a personal knowledge base and fulfilling a customer's need (one for which you'll get paid, that is), the terror of risk is minimized.

Through numerous case studies and total transparency about finances and challenges, Chris illuminates the framework of modern cottage industries.

These are not get-rich-quick schemes and some people rake in more bucks than others, but Chris encourages everyone to know exactly what they really want and need from a business as well. Wouldn't it be great to be a millionaire? But can you get by without being one? Sure.

In all of his work, Chris espouses the philosophy of not "living on less" but "living more." And that, my friends, is the best way to create a new future.
