This book was OK. It covers a very broad range of topics regarding how to use the Web (Internet) to make money. Basically there are five sections to the book (5 topics): (1) online infopreneur, (2) eBay retailer, (3) affiliate marketer, (4) Yahoo! Stores retailer, and (5) blogger. I've reviewed other books on all each of these topics. And I've been pretty clear in my reviews that topics 2 through 5 do not provide much benefit for the cost when it comes to making money. There are books written about each. And this book just does not do any of them justice in the short space given them.

This book has an introduction and conclusion along with 26 chapters:

0. Introduction
1. Creating "Digitally Delivered Information Products"
2. What is information marketing?
3. Top 7 information topics
4. How to figure out what information to sell
5. Researching the online marketplace
6. Evaluating your "brilliant" idea
7. Creating your information product
8. Licensing
9. Joint ventures
10. Public domain
11. Getting your site's foundation built
12. Creating your hot offer
13. Setting up your site
14. Headlines that sell
15. The eBay Machine
16. Finding the right products and setting up business
17. The `flood"
18. Your listing
19. What makes a successful seller?
20. The world of affiliate programs
21. Finding an affiliate program and working it
22. The Yahoo! Stores phenomenon
23. Establishing your niche
24. Why blogging?
25. How to set up a blog
26. Making money with blogs
26a. Conclusion

My favorite part of the book was Section 1 (chapters 1-14) regarding online infopreneurship. It covered 122 pages of text. And I thought much of it was pretty good.

Yanik was one of the first guys that got me started with internet marketing, and when he wrote a book I was all over it. The reason why is because when you search for info on the internet at this time you are inundated with massive amount of information from every angle you can think of with a very high price tag.

This book is not intended to make you rich overnight, and Yanik states that clearly, but, following these principles, you can get a very quick start without the confusion.

I suggest getting your pen and paper ready and take notes as you read this book w/ready to take action steps. That's what I did and I've gotten a BIG jump with public domain materials that I seriously never thought I would do. But now that I see how easy it is I'm almost finished with a project in record time.

That is what this book is all about - getting started easily and quickly, nothing complicated - and it's perfect for someone who needs ONE place to focus on getting their information from. Sitting in front of your computer and searching for quality information in one place is next to impossible nowadays, it's information overload out there.

The stories sprinkled throughout the book w/success stories will motivate and educate you at the same time.

People who have experience w/internet marketing are taking this book for granted if they say they expected more detailed information. I think we often forget just how clueless we all were when we first started in this biz.

The only part that did not interest me: Well, I'm not the biggest fan of the yahoo stores concept but it may very well suit others.

I have great respect for Mr. Silver and I aspire to quit my day job one day! I loved the personal success stories - that lets me know I can do it also. I was disappointed in that there are TONS of links in the book. I spent time bookmarking the ones I wanted to go to after reading the book. When I went to the MOTI website they are ALL gone!! What gives? There was also comments in the book of an accompanying CD - that was not included in my book (which I bought here on Amazon). If you think this book is a hand holding expedition in making quick money on the internet this is not the book for you. If you are looking for ideas to help you make money on the internet this could be your book.

Yanik's book was given to me as a gift and I had the pleasure of reading it over the holidays. It's straight from the horse's mouth as they say. You'll learn how to make money on the Internet from someone(s)who'd already done it!
The book is written for those of us who want to earn extra money "moonlighting" on the Internet but I think there's enough other good information in there for more advanced e-commerce students.

There are lots of actionable things any "ordinary Joe" can do right away and if you're like me you'll dog-ear the pages and write notes in the margins - a good reference tool.

The only thing I could suggest to improve it, would be to include some kind of step-by-step summary for getting started. Lots of great information so what a value that would have been!

The two things I like best are:

1.I thought the "real life" moonllighting stories were particularly helpful, especially since their experiences and products were so varied.

2.I really like the common theme running through all of them however. That is: stop thinking about it and do it! I couldn't agree more.
I think readers will take comfort knowing that you don't have to be a computer programmer to make money online and you don't have to reinvent the wheel.

With all of the self-proclaimed Internet marketing gurus out there it's refreshing to get solid advice from one of the world's leading experts.
You can take this one to the bank.
