I make my living as a freelance writer, and do 95% of my writing on the Web. That said, I'm always looking for ways to improve my skills and success - which is where buying this book came in.

First and foremost, I've never seen such a bad book go to print. I suspect that "Encore Publishing Group" (who published this book) is essentially just a self-publishing outlet, but the errors here go above and beyond. I stopped counting the errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation when I hit about 25, and that was just in the introduction!

For a book geared toward writers and writing, you'd think that someone would have stepped in with a red pen. Seriously, use the "Look Inside!" feature and check out the "First Pages" feature. Not only are there plenty of errors, but the book is written way below the speed of its audience. For anyone really looking to write successful online copy, there are far better sources than this. "Content Rich" is far from a guidebook to SEO success. Check into some free online SEO and copywriting resources like Copyblogger and SEOBook before wasting your money on this.

Painful. This book is one of the most painful reading experiences I've ever had.

I had ordered this book for some advice on breaking into online copywriting. Two or three times I just had to stop and double-check its rating. Four-and-a-half stars? Really?

Now, I don't doubt that the author has made a lot of money copywriting--his business has its own website and there are a dozen testimonials in the front of the book. In fact, the copywriting principles themselves seem pretty sound. What I could not handle were the two or three typos on every single page.

Some typos are pretty standard, like "its" for "it's." The book seems afraid of hyphens, as in "multi billion dollar industry," and "benefits oriented, keyword rich copy." It also has a loose understanding of title capitalization: "How many Articles Do I Write? When and Where do they End Up?"

Other typos are really head-scratching, like on page 61: "To give you an example of how keyword prominence is used on a real site, let'sconsideraprojectIdidfor[...] 'motorcycle battery.'" And again on 114 and 115, which has the phrases "get rid of the fl uff," "You'll fi nd when you do this," and "adjective fi lled ones."

Sometimes I had to read a sentence a few times to even begin to understand what the book was trying to say. On page 69: "You can see in the prior examples that we followed a certain strategy in regards to the headers. For the first one, 'Catchquick: The Easiest Shopping Search Engine on the Web!,' we used the company name, Catchquick, the most important keyword phrase - Shopping Search Engine and communicated a good benefit - it's the easiest on the web.

I purchased this book with high hopes that I would be learning something from someone who has been extremely successful in the online copywriting world. Instead of the insight I was hoping for, I got a poorly written book that obviously was published without ever having been reviewed by a copy editor.

I expect better, especially when the book is by someone who writes for a living and has the resources to have a book professionally prepared for publication.

There are pronoun agreement errors and basic 8th grade errors in the use of apostrophes on plurals. Check out your competitor's websites...

Jon, hire a ghost writer who knows that the apostrophe goes after the s when there is more than one competitor. I would overlook this error as a typo if it only happened once, but that apostrophe error had happened more than a half dozen times by the time I quit reading on page 129.

The book has screen shots of copy that the author has written that are reproduced in such a way as to make the copy too small to read.

One of my favorite sentences is on p.85. "One thing that I routinely see is a non-existant[sic.] About Us page." How true. Many companies don't do enough to tell the story of their businesses. It's a good point if you can overlook the spelling error and the illogical construction of seeing what does not exist.

Call me picky, but I can't.

Read Robert Bly or John Caples or Roy Williams, but don't buy this book. I am so disappointed. I wish I could get my money back. I guess I'll have to dump my used copy on Amazon.

I read this book hoping to get an understanding of how to do SEO copy writing and SEO content, because that is what the book is supposed to be about. While reading, I kept wondering when the answer to the question "how to write SEO content" would surface, but it never did; I didn't know when or if the question was ever answered, even though I continued to read the book. After finishing it, I had a bitter taste in my mouth. Basically, this is a conversational piece about the author's experience as a copywriter. In fact, if the name of the book was "My Copy Writing Experience, this would be a nice read.
