Again, I would recommend this book to beginning sellers as it does answer quite a few questions that they may have and experienced sellers will find some value in there as well, but it is a pretty expensive trade paperback so if you already know what you are doing, you may not feel that you are getting your money's worth. My only complaint with the book is that the author doesn't deal with a few issues that I feel are very important if you are going to be selling on Amazon.com's marketplace. The number one thing that he didn't deal with is the shipping charges issues, as in Amazon keeping $1+ per transaction as "shipping charges" that the seller never sees, but the buyer is always complaining about. It would have been nice for him to go over this, or at least mention it, as it is one of the most difficult things for new sellers to understand. A few more specific tips would have made this book a 5 star instead of a 4.
We came across his book shortly after we began online listing of inventory from our bookstore. We found the advice in his book to be the best we'd found anywhere on the basic how-to's of getting started.
After covering the basics, the book goes on to explain the finer points of online selling, as well as the finer points of running an online bookselling business (taxes, insurance, etc.)
If you want to feel confident in your new bookselling venture, buy and read this book. It will give you a solid foundation of information you'll use for years to come.
concise and easy to read. I highly recommend you start here, if you are considering joining the hordes selling books on Amazon
