10 out of 10 acorns

This is one of the very few books that I've purchased within seconds of hearing that it existed. Elizabeth 'U' does a great job of not only explaining all the possible funding sources, but she gives her honest opinion on each option. It's hard to find anyone willing to say, for example, that the effort needed to stay within the requirements of government grants is rarely worth the cash reward. Elizabeth also walks through the various regulations that various food businesses might brush up against. There are also plenty of examples of businesses that have pursued each funding type.

('U' is in quotes because apparently there is some rule intending to prevent folks from using 'u' for the word you.)
