I bought this book when I began training as a driving instructor and as I viewed the countless amount of similar publications my attention was drawn to this paticular one, not only due to the reasonable price (£5.99 at the time) but also because of the positive reviews readers had given it.
With this in mind, I purchased the book and I began to read it with barely any knowledge of the industry I was entering.
The style of writing is simple and straightforward, making all the industry language easy to understand and take in. Not only this, but the font is clear and of reasonable size, so you're not squinting to see all the words on the page.
The book covers many subjects, including setting up your home office, renting and buying suitable cars, keeping financial records and many other aspects of being a driving instructor.
What stood out for me is the fact that this is a book written by two experienced instructors and this shows greatly throughout the book. The two gentleman compare their methods of work and let you, the reader, decide on the best route to take - a very clever way of writing.
All in all, this is a very useful book if you are brand new to the industry, but I do feel it's very basis and if you are well into your training or you are already an instructor, then you may find this book slightly tedious and you may feel you already know the information which it gives.
