The focus of the book is on presentation of listings (it is about HTML!). Topics covered include setting up photos, clipping images, and the use of video/animation and sound. From a personal perspective the latter two are annoying in most instances.
Following the book will result in well presented listings. Advice on actual content (wording)is limited. Much of the content is covered off in ebay hacks, albiet lacking the same level of illustration.
If you are familiar with HTML the book won't give you anything new. Cover price of $19.95 may make it slow to get your money back off this book. There are more useful books (driving ebay traffic, ebay hacks).
I'm not great with HTML but I don't think it will be much better as a result of this book (although ebay stores are covered it does not detail how to structure companion sites).
Example from my homepage:
If you have no HTML experience, don't like getting into technical details and want a very user friendly guide, this book is a very soft introduction.
Another plus is that the authour includes a picture of how the page looks, both, before and after the HTML function. This is really helpful, because you can choose the look you want and then use the (simple) HTML function, on the same page(s), to achieve the desired results. Some of the topics covered are:
Arranging the Page
Decorating the Page
Styling the Text
Creating Links, and
Making Your Listings Stand Out
This is a handy reference book, no ebay seller should be without. The improvements made to a listing by using this book, are almost guaranteed to ramp up sales! It's an all-around winner for the ebay seller.
