90 page memoir, half blank space, yet entertaining
on April 4, 2014
To start: the author is a good storyteller, but just so you know this book is 88 pages 50% of which is blank space. So you can read it in about two hours. Is it a book? To me, it is a memoir at best, a pamphlet at worst, due to its brevity. The word prosperity is in the subtitle, and I’m uncomfortable with that, let’s just say that prosperity is relative.
If you are an experienced online seller, you are only going to gain minimal new knowledge. That said, he certainly has the entrepreneurial spirit, and that I admire. He operates with honesty and integrity “in the field” the man never gives up. He is self-deprecating at times, which is fun. At various times he considers taking a regular job, but then is always pulled back to dealing in arbitrage, which is to be commended.
He offers 25 tips at the end of the book, of which I only disagree with #11 and #21, so that’s 23 pretty good ones.
Are you getting started in the business? My personal advice would be to find one product line that works and focus on that unless it bores you too much. Still, operate with longest tail possible.
I cannot recommend this for an experienced seller unless you want to take a trip down memory lane. For the interested novice, I guess it should be okay. If he can sell a thousand of these “books” and inspire 50 people to go out there make a living on their own, then that is a positive thing for the planet.
