About the Book
Reg "Raganwald" Braithwaite has been working as a professional software developer since 1986, in roles ranging from Sorceror's Apprentice to Vice-President, Development.

I read @raganwald's "Do what you love" eBook in a single sitting. Purchase and read it if you haven't already.—Karthik Hariharan, @hkarthink
...Best freelance advice i ever got was from @raganwald 10 years ago, at Starbucks: "Some people aren't qualified to be your clients"—Derek Martin
