5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a gift of knowledge, February 10, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Get Seen: Online Video Secrets to Building Your Business (Hardcover)
Length:: 4:47 Mins

Steve Garfield has a national reputation as a videoblogging teacher. When I heard about his new book, I ordered two copies sight unseen. He is as effective a teacher in print as he is in person and online. This book is also very tightly written -- no excess words. That makes it easier to read and allows the author to pack in more content.

If this book comes out in an interactive version for the iPad, it may well be the gold standard for rich media books. Hats off to Steve Garfield for pulling this off. It's no easy feat to birth a book of this quality and usefulness.(And credit, too, to the folks at his publisher, John Wiley & Sons.)

Your timing to talk about this book couldn't be better. have been researching how to augment our video /blog presence on the internet. And yes, I also use my Canon Digital Camera's video mode for most of my videos that go on Youtube. Is this in an audio book format too? Could listen to it while in the car or on my pda.
