Very informative, if not a little dry.

This book was very informative with relevant information; and the author made some dry sections as animated as he could. Not very long so not difficult to get through at all. Great first step at starting an online business.

Comprehensive but somewhat unscrupulous

Overall the book was quite informative with lots of ideas for a successful online business. It is straight to the point and I like how it is organized. My issue is with a few of the suggestions they make such as to go to corporate rather than local banks, and to shop Amazon rather than local office supply stores. While it does make sense because these are cheaper or more convenient ways to do business, and I do know this is a book supporting online shopping, but as a small business I try my best to support local brick and mortar businesses as much as possible. I go online for what I cannot find here, and the online store I am going to open will offer items not found around here too. Another qualm I had was the encouragement to "friend" everyone you possibly could on Facebook, even people you don't know, just to have a larger audience. This is poor Facebook etiquette and comes off as sleezy. Along the same idea the book suggests to start emailing people you haven't talked to for years to bulk up your contacts....this to me is very rude and gives people the impression that you are using them. So in conclusion, I think the book has several good takeaways, however, I think people need to use their common sense to decide which strategies are not the most ethical for an honest business with a good reputation to use.
