Not worth $1.99,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Free Kindle Books and How to Find Them (Kindle Edition)
Granted there are many good resources listed in the book, but nothing you couldn't find via Google. Also some of the sites listed had already changed their URL's. OK. This is not the author's fault, but it does reinforce the fact that Google is better than this book. If you hate using a search engine, then this is the book for you, otherwise just search for free ebooks yourself.

Really, not worth $1.99? Has this book saved you any time whatsoever? How much do you make an hour? If $6, does this save you 20 minutes? If you make $25/hour, did this book save you... well you get the idea.
I don't think the writer (collector of thoughts) really says that his ideas are all original or can't be found elsewhere, but instead they are collected in one location. (I recon any of us could have done the same thing if we were motivated enough to do it.)
Now I'm not commenting on the content of the book really, just the notion that $1.99 is such a high price.
I think too often we are penny wise but pound foolish. In other words, we spend 7 hours of time in order to save a couple of bucks. Just another point of view.
