An excellent guide for your Empire Avenue adventures. I heard about the book after a week of joining Empire Avenue and it gave me very detailed information about being a star on the Avenue.
Apart from EA, the book also gives valuable information about managing your social networking sites to produce the best results in EA.

The very first message I got from someone after joining Empire Avenue was to check out "Walking Down The Avenue" by Alan Jobe. I did, and it saved me a lot of time getting up to speed. I highly recommend this to anyone else just getting started on Empire Avenue.

I read this in PDF format, which is an easy to read style with bolded category headers detailing the specifics for each section.
There are pro tips in bold type at the end of some of these sections. You will find examples of buying and selling strategy, how to use tumblr, twitter and facebook.
There is a list of some communities to join on facebook with links, plus mention of some users on the site. He is quite honest is stating that the site can be a time sink, and also the groups on facebook. I know this firsthand and left a few to focus more on the communities at the site, which you will be rewarded for.
The explanation of how the daily payout takes place along with the indexes changing was very beneficial. This was also compared to the real stock market noting the differences in the game.
Walking Down the Avenue brings up a good point about the hashtags utilized in a name. When I first joined I found this very confusing and was not sure what to click on to find the member that had just left me a shout out. It is best to start with your identified username from twitter or facebook.
A nicely detailed overview that the experienced user of Empire Avenue will appreciate, as well as good insights for the newbie ready to jump into the Avenue.
The only items not mentioned was where to get updates on the Empire Avenue blog, they also listed a change log there where members can find out any updates to the site that are being worked on or resolved. The other data missing was about the various apps and sites members have created that many utilize to get more information. I use the game on facebook when in a time crunch and can do a lot of buying and selling in a fast manner without being distracted with notifications.
