I just finished reading Mike Monteiro "Design is a Job" book. This book is the seventh that has been publised by A Book Apart. The tag line of a A Book Apart is "Brief books for people who make websites". Mike is the cofounder of Mule Design. And a host of the podcast called "Let's Make Mistakes".
- Contract protection (but not to be used as shield)
- Clear project goals
Mike blends the rules and lessons learned of running a design firm with great humour. His case studies are on point. Considering I don't run a design firm I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it for others.
