I gave it three stars for two reasons. First, this book desperately needs to be updated. If I had written this review five years ago, I probably would have given it five stars. But in the past five years there have been significant changes in the book publishing industry. For example, simply look at Amazon, a number of promotional efforts by Amazon have come and gone in the past five years. Thus, six years later, the book needs a thorough revision to make sure each of the marketing examples presented in the book is still feasible.
Second, the book is seven hundred pages, but unfortunately with no subject index. Several times I found a great idea for marketing my book, but later when I went back to find the example, I grew frustrated trying to find the right page as I thumbed through 700 pages. If you are reading this book for tips/ideas on how to market your book, get some post-it-notes, and as you read it, and find a good idea, put a post-it-note on that page to keep track of the details for an idea for marketing your book. In conclusion, easily the best book marketing book I have read to date, but at this time it is a desperate need of good revision in order to maintain topical currency.
This review is from: 1001 Ways to Market Your Books (1001 Ways to Market Your Books: For Authors and Publishers) (Paperback)
I have two words to describe this book: BLOWN AWAY, MUST BUY, ENCLOPEDIC MARKETING, okay multiple two word phrases because just one set of two word phrases does not do this book justice.
I have purchased a lot of books on Amazon on how to promote my book. Interestingly enough, they all have differing suggestions that are original and all of them have been useful. If your budget is limited then you need to buy this book. I am truly beyond impressed by this book. I did not get paid to write this review, I don't know the author but I have to give credit where credit is due. You need to buy this book if you are serious about marketing your book. And you need to be serious about marketing your book because it just won't sell if you don't spend serious time studying and working on marketing your book.

Today, it’s still a go-to resource, packed with post-it notes and dog-eared,
pages that might one day bark a protest.
A number of chapters in the original book have been updated in the Kindle format.
For example, How to Sell More Books by Computer (formerly How to Sell More Books via the Internet).
And while it’s true the copy spacing in this Kindle edition could be greatly improved,
identifying new resources related to this topic
outweighs the optical exercise.
Without this guide, many new or aspiring author publishers would likely be hard pressed to recite or think of more than a dozen ways to market their books.
The massive collection of marketing and promotion strategies documented by industry guru, John Kremer, illustrates how many large and small authors and publishers successfully promoted their work.
But 1001 Ways… could also be used as a tool for those who are unsure of their skills and abilities. Each of the ideas presented employ an array of different tasks and activities, and various skills and knowledge must be employed.
Analyzing the contents may well shed light on potential overlooked or unused strengths and weaknesses in tackling the marketing path.
