The whole book can be reduced to 3-4 chapters of useful information! All the rest is filler and fluff.
The book is like a cheap advertisement for PRWEB. PRWEB is a pay site for press releases. The author mentions this site at least 1-2 times per page!!! after awhile you just get sick of the cheap plugs for this site!
Their is some good stuff in this book you just have to weed your way around to find it !!!
I'm also finding the tips and descriptions very inconsistent. At times, the author will go into great depth about the most basic of things, such as what a search engine is or something fantastic that PR Web does. Then, she will use terms such as "cookie duration" and "web analytics tools" without any further detail. For someone who is unfamiliar with what these have to do with PR, it's unhelpful and confusing.
I also found the constant references to PR Web grating, as well as the references to something called a "score," which is then noted is no longer done. Why not just edit those parts out if it's no longer relevant?
Really disappointed, I thought this book would give me some insight in a more concise form than digging it up from the internet, but I'd have been better served just sticking to the web.
To make story short: author covers cover explain you how to write press release and make it catchy, how to spread it online (difference between payable and free services), how to use SEO and some other tips and tricks.
Highly recommended for novice entrepreneurs embracing Web opportunities.
