is a great book. I wanted to learn how to make MP3's so that I could make some for authors to use to promote their books. This book helped me to accomplish this and sure took the frustration out of my learning experience. I now have my MP3's made and have downloaded them on my computer and am now learning how to use my WS_FTP program so that I can put them on a web-page so people can click on them to listen to.
I am very appreciative and thankful for this great helpful book and I am glad there was a Todd Cochrane out there to write this book as it has been a great help to me. I also want to mention that there is some great links in this book and I have not clicked on any that no longer exists.
Thank you Todd Cochrane I place a high value on this book and will highly recommend it.
For the busy exec or marketing manager this do-it-yourself guide has two benefits. First, (you) don't have time anyway, and this book is a quick read. That's good for you. Second, it shows you step-by-step how to create a low-cost, effective podcast. That's good for your business.
If you're a programmer looking for inner secrets, this book is NOT for you. If however you're part of the other 95% of the business world and would like to find out just how easy it is to get into this new media format, buy it. You won't be dissapointed.
Cochrane has created a realistic guide to podcasting on any budget. Along with recommending equipment for setting up a "semiprofessional" podcast studio, he tells how to get started with what you already own. And, he suggests many free sources for software, hosting and content.
If you are looking for a comprehensive guide to podcasting from someone who has "been there, done that," then you should buy "Podcasting: The Do-it-Yourself Guide."

The author assumes that you are a public blogger wanting to post podcasts on a public site. There is nothing anywhere in the release about the book that this book is no help, if you want to post on your own website. Next time, I guess I go to a bookstore and look at the book. Anyone want a very slightly worn, but unused, copy of this book?
I'd read about the ease with which podcasts could be created. I'd heard a number of podcasts that offered interesting content. But how to get from here (knowing nothing) to there?
Audio books I'd previously bought (hoping for help) appeared to have been written for people who already understood the basics. The audio-tech for a boy-band, for example. That certainly wasn't me.
I needed the 1-2-3 approach.
1. What is the "it" that's needed?
2. What does "it" do?
3. How do you make it work?
This is the first book on audio production I've found that was basic enough to give me the answers I needed. Perhaps it's too basic for most podcasters, but at my level of expertise, I wouldn't hazard a guess.
What I can say is that if you're like me, a rank beginner, this is the book for you. Answers the questions a beginner will ask in simple, understandable terms. No dazzling you with geekspeak here.
Just what I needed. Thanks, Todd!

If you are thinking about getting into podcasting this is a must read! I could never have done it without Todd's book.
It has a wealth of basic information that covers many things you'd otherwise overlook in the course of trying to set it up yourself.
