Don't take another step until you get Joe's book! It will save you alot of pain. You will either educate yourself enough to do it yourself or enough to realize that you need a pro.

Where are you located? Are you going to do it yourself? If so, do you have any equipment for materials handling? How about some scaffolding and plank. Lots of different things to consider.
With that said, there have been a lot of people on this site that did their own slate roofs. If you have a camera and questions, you can ask us and we will more than happy to answer them and help you through the difficult parts. Joe's book would be a great place to start you education.
It is fun!
