The final 200 pages are a bit better in getting into the details of what things to do right and what things to avoid doing. There were small pieces of information I did not know, which I found helpful. At times he would plug his own products, which is fine, I suppose, but I would have appreciated a little bit more beef in the advice he was giving.
If you have ten dollars to blow, this is a worthwhile investment. If you don't, you could find many of the hints and tips Adam provides in a newsletter online or on eBay itself.
And, if eBay University comes to your town, take advantage of it. You will learn a lot about how to operate a real business on eBay.
I recommend that graduates of Ginsberg's book move on to read Debra Schepp's eBay Powersellers Secrets book, which provides substantial information about how to find products to sell, etc.
My own advice is to take it slow. There is not a fast cash way to success on eBay. You have to do your homework and experiment before finally finding your niche. Be patient, study hard, and read books like Ginsberg's, and you will do just fine.
The downside of the book is that he promotes his own eBay listing products. He mentions that his isn't the only one out there... remember that. It's an infinite internet world out there and there are more people/companies offering the same thing. Just do your research.
He is honest and gives great suggestions. It's easy to read and inspiring. It's great for people who want to try selling on eBay but just didn't have the guts to try. This will get you going...
For those who are already selling on eBay... I think there are great suggestions and insight you can pick up from this book too.
I followed Adam's advice and started selling things lying around the house and up in the attic. My son Neil 'tied' down his two fairly large fish tanks incase I sold them as well.;-)
I've now progressed to selling three products and the tests are proving very positive. This book will really get you fired up and you will be very enthusiastic after reading it. After reading the I really believe it is possible to start a business on eBay and make serious money. Adam also gives you great help besides the book. He has a serious website with tons of information on it. You get a load of free information when you buy the book.
Go for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
