When I bought this book on Amazon I was hoping to get some tips and resources for the burgeoning world of online content -- eBooks, reports, newsletters, etc. In that regard, this book was a disappointment. 90% of the content relates to authors who are publishing for print. If you are getting a book traditionally published or self-published, you may benefit. If your focus is online content, I would keep looking.

I feel like the title misrepresents the content. "Getting your book published" or "publishing and marketing your book" are more apt. If I didn't feel a little duped by the promise of content, I would probably up my rating to 3 stars. Only chapter 6 and maybe part of chapter 7 (less than 20 pages) focus on anything other than the traditional publishing model.

I've read most of Alan Weiss' books on how to be a successful consultant, and the instant book seemed to me to be pretty much a rehash of Dr. Weiss' books. It had a little of Dottie Walter's book (Speak and Grow Rich) mixed in there, as well as a bunch of content similar to that found in M.J. Rose's book (How to Promote and Publish Online). The book did not seem to me to be about "infopreneurship" per se as the title suggests. It certainly covered the subject, but it covered more in my opinion.

Before I purchased this book the other day my idea of an infopreneur was that of a digital publisher that sold information products online. My understanding of the term seems to be consistent with an entry for "infopreneur" at Wikipedia Online: "An infopreneur is generally considered an entrepreneur who makes money selling information on the Internet." Since an infopreneur is an entrepreneur it seemed odd to me that the title of the book was worded the way that it was.

I had problems with the title to Chapter 8 in the book (Your Web Site: Build it and They Will Come). Just about everybody knows that merely building a Web site does not generate visitors or, more importantly, paying customers or clients.

My favorite chapters were the ones that seemed to focus on infopreneurship:

1. Information Product Opportunities (a list of the available information product options)
6. Digital Books and Special Reports
7. Other Information Products
9. Online Marketing Techniques
10. Offline Marketing Techniques

I would have liked the book better if Chapter 4 (How to Get Published Traditionally) had been omitted and Chapter 11 (Buzz Marketing) had been merged into chapters 9 (Online Marketing) and 10 (Offline Marketing).

Based on the other Amazon reviews, I purchased this book. After reading it, and being thoroughly disappointed, I realized, on second glance, that most of the reviews here are from other authors, who seemed to give it the thumbs up.

I expected this book to tackle more issues with regard to eBooks, in terms of generation and advertising, and the information contained in this book on this subject was scant, to say the least. Most of the book addresses methods for promoting printed books, which is misleading (in my eyes) and conflicts with the words "eBook" and "Information Products", which appear on the front cover. Many of the ideas presented for advertising - TV, radio, seminars, etc., are well outside the bounds of the average author. Lots of regurgitated concepts that we've seen hundreds of times before in other books.

There are basically only 1 or 2 small chapters that are relevant to eBooks, and there are major omissions in that regard - no description of ClickBank (the pre-eminent leader in eBook distribution) other than a quick reference, and only a one page discussion of PPC advertising, which has to be addressed more thoroughly in this type of book.

I did find a couple of useful tidbits and website references, but it certainly didn't justify the price of the book.

We are not in the information age, but rather the information overload age. People handle information overload by seeking out experts, and publishing information products helps make you an expert. Experts benefit by selling information products or perhaps giving them away to help further establish their expertise, which can lead to more and better work.

I often blog on how bloggers should repackage their information into information products like books, ebooks, special reports, audio CDs etc. Stephanie Chandler's recent book is a great and pretty thorough overview of information products -- creating, marketing and more, that I'll be recommending to many people.

I know this topic pretty well having aided several clients in producing and marketing info products, and this book is simply full of solid advice. I'm not sure how I could have made it better had I written it myself, and it's usually easy to offer constructive criticism in hindsight. I certainly learned a few things, and the book has a nice organization and flow.

I particularly liked the Infopreneur Profiles, perhaps in part because I know several of them personally. Great choices!

If I had to make one criticism, it would be the amount of coverage to traditional books. Then again, they are the "original" info product and the best at establish one as an "expert."
