A nice mixture of common sense and fluff filler nothing more.

Not a lot of information that I didn't already know, but I have been doing my own research for a while. For someone just starting out, this book would be of much greater value. Very easy to read and well-written, and worth the time to read, even if just to reinforce what I had read elsewhere.

While reading this ebook, I had in the back of my mind the fact that I was going to give it a two-star rating. It contained some useful information, but nothing I didn't already know. I felt that the author had a bit of a chip on his shoulder while writing it, and I didn't understand the title.

It got better! Basically, he is saying that you need to build your brand first, offer up some stuff for free, get people to know you, and then only consider publishing your first book for a fee. It's got some useful links to surveys and the terms and conditions of the various online ebook retailer sites, with explanations of how to interpret them.

Ted Summerfield speaks candidly about his experiences with publishing and selling his ebooks, and building his brand. He sets expectations for aspiring authors looking to make their millions overnight, and offers a fine introduction into the world in which we're all still exploring.

It's not a great read, but it's not terrible either. I have to say, I liked it!

A short, yet concise book filled with practical information on the process of publishing your first ebook. More of an overview, the reader will have to invest time in getting to know the particulars of the business, but Summerfield has been there and already made the mistakes as well as achieved his goals.

This is an unsolicited review.

Great and honest guide on what to expect when first publishing your e-book. The author is sharing lots of great tips of how to avoid newbie mistakes and how to market your book effectively.

I'm glad I read it and am about to start using some of the suggestions in the book.

A plain-speaking, straight-forward, no-nonsense survey of the current state of self-publishing and e-books from someone who has been through it and provides solid advice from real-world experience.
