The advice is good, but many times going beyond reality to just bleak. Also, all the web addresses sounded horrible on audio. This would have been much better on an e-book format only.
Probably not because there are lots of URLs and some other things in the way the book is structured that make more sense to see rather than read.
Can't say, first time for me to 'read' this type of book.
The narrator could use some more work on developing a more natural read. He has good timbre, but a very stilted and some might say "affected" reading style.
The reading of to the complete url address over and over has caused me to pause this book over and over. Point is I can't do it anymore. I want to return the book but the link doesn't work.

Ok, I wanted to give this book an overall of 5 but I can't. I hate it when authors write a how to book and then leave out the all important priority checklist at the end. Or at least give me a place to go on a website and get it. Heck, I will even take an extra product that I have to buy to get the checklist.
NOTE: to all how to authors out there. If you are going to write a how to book you must provide us with an end of book checklist. Or quick start guide of some kind. You can't just write all this techy stuff and provide us with all this great information, and then leave us totally short with no road map, no goal, no place to start.
Remember we are buying your book because we are totally ignorant of what you are an authority on. Lead us. Guide us. Truly make your book remarkable and deserving of 5 starts and give your reader direction and purpose.
I am sorry no priority checklist, no 5 stars. You don't deserve it no matter how good the book is. NO matter how well it is read and written. No matter how beautifully the book is designed. Look I wanted a checklist so bad that I went and purchased the hard copy book on Amazon, praying there would be a checklist in there. I got the book today. No luck.
Now when I start my blog, I have to poke and pick through each chapter again to find the info I need if I am lucky to even find it. This is a 306 page book, not going to be easy.
So, if you want a book on pro blogging this is a good book with good info and you will get a lot out of it. Just be advised that you will be left hanging on the actual how to part. You will have to figure out your own direction or go out on the web and find a priority checklist from someone out there who you don't really know or trust because let's be honest, you didn't buy their book you bought Rowse and Garrett's book. Nuff Said!
Although a great book, this is not one I would choose again as an audiobook. There is too much technical information that would be better to have in front of you versus having someone read it to you. I am going to be paying more attention to the type of books I download.
