    This is the only cutting-edge book on the subject of Kindle book marketing, promotion and selling that teaches you how to understand and master the Amazon Kindle-book ecosystem. Plus: how to "scale" your Kindle book so that you can make a lot more sales and money; how to effectively use the Internet and social media to promote your Kindle book and brand yourself as an author; and much more.

    "Great content; narration needs work."

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The content of this book is so good that I need to purchase a hard copy or Kindle copy for future reference. However the author should have taken his own advice and invested in professional narration.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Excellent content; well thought out and plenty of depth.


    What three words best describe Omar Johnson’s voice?

    Painfully, painfully slow.


    Do you think How to Promote, Market and Sell Your Kindle Book needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I don't think this particular topic needs a follow up. It is complete. Johnson does have books in several other niches that can be considered by persons interested in those niches.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have given this a five were it not for the narration. Johnson is educated, articulate, and a good writer - just not the right person to be narrating. The narration is painfully slow, which I suspect is because in Johnson's own words, the price of the audio book is based on its length in hours. His diction is reasonably good, but his ability to be expressive about subject matter that he clearly cares about, is totally lacking. Keep this in mind if you buy the audio version, but if you're interested in this topic you should buy another version immediately. It's every bit as good as a "course" on the topic for which I paid $300 - and a whole lot cheaper!

    Would you listen to The Wisdom of Wallace D. Wattles again? Why?

    I would probably listen to it a second time, but not a third. The narration is fine; the writing is definitely dated.


    What other book might you compare The Wisdom of Wallace D. Wattles to and why?

    This is one (or rather, three) of a kind.


    What does Jason McCoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jason did a good job with narration. He had some excellent content to work with, but it was buried in a writing style that was obsolete a hundred years ago.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Thoughts create things. They didn't actually use those words, but they sum up the whole law of attraction (which may not have actually been so named at the time these books were written).


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a self professed self-improvement junkie. My focus, to be honest, has been largely on increasing my financial wherewithal. I've read and listened to material by some of the greatest on this topic, including Harv Eker, Joe Vitale, and many others. I worked backwards to find the roots of their teaching - and it all seems to start with this guy with the goofy name, Wallace D. Wattles.

    So my advice to you is, if you want to improve your health, your wealth, or your general position in the world, start here and go in whatever direction is appropriate for you, rather than working backwards as I did. This is the source.
