Marsha Collier is legendary.

The vast amount of research neatly organized into both this and "Starting an eBay Business For Dummies" makes these excellent reference books, though Marsha's treatment of any given subject matter is not boring judging from my reading of random pages here and there.

She did perfectly on both of my books Authored by her. I would give her 10 out of 5 stars if mathematically possible.

This book is full of great info that you can't find anywhere else, well, unless you feel like forking out the cash for all the included books... from signing up and buying and bidding advice to selling and shipping, this book covers it all! Even accounting! The only part that is out of date is that the Trading Assistant program is now defunct, but that just happened around the time of publication, which is not the fault of the author or the For Dummies people. The best book for eBay beginners to be found, much better than all those " eBay secrets revealed! " books.

I've read Marsha Collier before, and heard her speak in person, she's terrific, as is this book.

Excellent and complete description of the basics of eBay "how to." Includes fun and interesting examples of items bought and sold on eBay.

If you know nothing about the new ebay, this is the book to get.
Succinct, clearly written, cleanly edited, this is far and above a better book than all those self-published guides out there.

This gave me a good basic operating system. There were parts I probably I would not use because they dealt with running a business through e-bay. I was just interested in selling a few items on e-bay. I have already used E-bay to but items.
