People have complained about a lot of links, and there are a lot of links. This is not a book you'll want to read on an airplane. Read this on a computer or tablet with an internet connection, and be prepared to take notes. If this was a college course, it would be one of the most dense and useful courses you've ever taken, and you'd probably fill up two notebooks.
Basically, if you're hoping for an easy read that tells you exactly what to do, you'll get frustrated. If you're looking for a master class on online marketing, this is brilliant.
I give it 5 stars for the research and wealth of information, but it could be improved:
- There are A LOT of links. Make sure you know what your objectives are and make executive decisions on when to follow a link and read more, and when to just move on.
- The book feels like (and probably is) a somewhat lose collection of Mr. Laja's blog posts and articles. Some information is repeated. Sometimes you'll read information in a link, and then find that the information is included in full later on in the book.
There are some grammar issues.
This book is a guided tour through best practices and knowledge regarding online marketing. An internet connection is mandatory.
It could be improved with more editing. It could be condensed and better organized.
For me, the value far outweighs the work.
This is absolutely priceless and an investment into making visitors do what you want them to after they arrive, no matter how they go there... paid, organic or otherwise.
Just buy it and thank me later. ;)
The most valuable quality of this book, in my opinion, is its "Scientific Approach," where the author uses the results of actual experiments to support his advice. In addition to conducting many of his own experiments, he uses a wide variety of data from others to support the material in the book. As a result, the material in the book reflects much more than Peep Laja's personal opinions, but provides insight into the overall state of the online business based on actual data.
This is a book that provides detailed advice on a number of e-business topics with a large volume of supporting data from the author's personal experiences and from the industry as a whole. For those who seek the wisdom of succeeding in e-business, I heartily recommend this book. Someone wanting a shallow, get-rich-quick approach to e-business will likely find this book to be tedious, with more depth than desired.
By the way, there are a number of excellent inline links provided in the book. Someone reading on some Kindle devices (that do not follow links readily) may want to either download the book to a computer-based Kindle reader, or request the PDF version that is offered in the last few pages of the book.
