This short audiobook, read by the author, covers the big questions you should be asking yourself before you so much as glance at an estate agent's window. It contains a jargon-free explanation of basic investment principles, summaries of the major post-crunch investment strategies, and advice on developing a mindset that will support your long-term success.

The global recession has sent 10s of millions scrambling for alternative employment opportunities, and a great many of them have taken the leap into becoming their own bosses. As a result there is a crying need among small business start-ups, entrepreneurs, and independents working on a shoestring for expert guidance on marketing themselves and their businesses online. Pimp My Site fills that void: a complete, do-it-yourself toolkit structured as a 14-day course.

What disappointed you about Pimp My Site?

I didn't get anything from this book unfortunately. I already do a lot of blogging and social media activity so was looking to further my knowledge. I think perhaps this book would be ok for beginners looking to get started with Social Media etc?

One thing I found very annoying was that fact that the author continually plugged their new Social Media website. When a new paragraph or section started I knew it was leading to a plug, and it was.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

The book would have been better if it lasted around 3-4 hours. Investing several hours in something basic for me was disappointing. I don't like to leave a book unfinished.
