Also, the book suggests putting your novel in multiple categories and with multiple keywords. Again, Amazon has made changes where only 2 categories you can add your book to (unless the publisher did so for you) and keywords have vanished. Which is a shame because when I published my book in April, I'd have loved to use keywords. You can use keywords in Shelfari and more categories, so we'll see if any of that translates over to Amazon.
If you're trying to sell your book, ask for reviews from book bloggers, tweet your book (and join #ASMSG and #IAN1 where they tweet your book for you), have a social networking presence (twitter, facebook, goodreads) and make sure your book is well written and properly edited. That will sell your novel.
The author is an indie book marketing guru who has figured out that the only real money to be made from the self publishing world is, for the most part, from indie authors themselves. That's cool. We need marketing gurus.
The book, however, seems to me to be a marketing tool itself. For the author, that is. Which is cool, too, so long as you know.
All the book really does is to suggest ways to manipulate the Amazon algorithm. No doubt, it's important to understand how Amazon works. But manipulation of the system never works for long. For example, the book suggests that an author use the names of well-known authors as keywords. Amazon does not allow this anymore. It's kind of underhanded, anyway.
The chapters discuss certain elements of Amazon in a very superficial way. That's not to say that there is no useful information in the book. It does explain how to use the Author Central page, and gives ideas on how to categorize your book, and how to contact top reviewers, and gives other links and important information.
But that's all it does. But the book is entitled: "How to Sell Your Books by the Truckload on Amazon.com" There's more to it, though, than how to manipulate the Amazon algorithms, which only works until Amazon gets wise.

So overall, this is a good introductory book as a way for newbie authors to ease their way into the industry. But don't expect to actually sell your books by the truckload just by reading this book, or by reading any other how-to books, for that matter.
