Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Get Rich Click! (Kindle Edition)
This book appears to be nothing but an infomercial for his website. Whenever he starts to tell a good story or give good tips. before finishing he gives a link to his website. And what good are weblinks on a Kindle? I can't imagine what the print edition is like. Do you press a link on a page with your finger and a magical screen appears before you? He's also obsessed with this UPC like codes called QRs which appear throughout the book. I have no access to these codes and thought they took up space and were worthless and interrupted the story.
But more importantly, nearly everything in this book is either pure common sense or easily available elsewhere on the net for free. I really question if some of these reviews aren't submitted by his PR team. Really, a nine page review?
I just don't trust his numbers. He says in one paragraph that the founder of Zappo's is worth $700M after the sale to Amazon. A few pages later he says that it sold for $1B, then later he says Jeff Bezos paid over a billion. Which one is it?
He also goes on to say that he purchased a blinds company in Houston. He said their website outsold both of their retail locations. The Kindle version says the website is [...]. I assume that is a typo for nobrainsBlinds.com. Nonetheless, he said the website business was more successful because it had no overhead. So, I guess the place just ran itself with Japanese Robots and Disney cartoon characters. No phone lines, no internet, no shipping, no labor, no benefits?
I swear this guy will be on late night TV ads in no time.
This is just a story of a man who got lucky buying a domain name and selling it for a fortune. Now, he just plays with his money. But, I think for him to suggest that the average person could recreate what he or many of the others mentioned in the book have done, is just ludicrous.
I regretfully hoped for more.

You have only one review. Therefore, your credibility is nil.

This was a very unhelpful review... I've read the entire book, and it looks like Marc has put in A LOT of effort to show where to begin, and where success lies in the future. He touches on the FUTURE, so Mobile Marketing, and all of that, which is very helpful. I want to ask you one question... could you write a better book then Marc? If so, write one, sell it, become a New York Bestseller, and then your comment above will have much more credibility.. well to me anyway.
