Hello!

On a path for self-improvement I have decided to read a book on business aspects of translation.

I have read plenty on "theoretical" aspects of our trade, thus now I would like to read more about the "business" aspect of freelance translator's work & life.

I would be grateful for suggestions on any good books worth to read, since there are many books with catchy titles that provide only superficial advice (spam the agencies & direct clients with your CV and you should be good someday).

The perfect book should be written by professionals for professionals.

Thank you for your time!
