Problems with Amazon

A Listmania! list by Michael Mannske "Author of Foreign and Domestic" (Minnesota)
The list author says: "I wrote my book in such a way as to maximize many of the powerful marketing services found here at Amazon.com. However, once I opened my detail page and tried selling at "the world's biggest bookstore", it turns out many of these advertised marketing features don't work. Features like Search Inside the Book, SIPs, CAPs, tags and categories either work intermittently or not at all. And to cap it off, techsupport is either unable to fix them or unresponsive. Hence, this list includes the books that I am using to help me get to the bottom of this shadow government inside of Amazon.com as I try to shed some light on the wizard behind the curtain."
