I think the author presents its content very well paced
Many examples of the internet industry
When the aouthor explians the dot.com dot bomb event
It is hard to make a movie out of it
The content is very old, I think it pertains to 2002 o some time around that year.
While there are a couple of key fundamental points that can apply to today's market, the majority of examples are extremely dated (e.g. failure of Walmart.com, and Walmart not having an online presence). Most of the examples and guidance provided in this book are extremely general, and Mr. Cohan refers to "the Internet" like its a foreign object from outer space.
Needs current, relevant content examples.
Simply put, No.
I was extremely disappointed with the content contained in this book, and only made it through Chapter 6 before I couldn't listen any longer. The narration is probably the poorest I have heard on an Audible book to date. While I enjoy informal, conversational tone, Mr. Cohan's repetitive use of "um and uh" became extremely aggravating, very quickly.
This book is outdated for anyone looking to get in to eCommerce in today's market.
The price which it is surely not worth.
Yes and turned me off from audible.com as well. Amazon has it priced around $18 which conveys to me that the price on aubile is an attempt to convince the customer it is of high quaility. Fooled me!
I would question audible's customer reviews it is hard to believe that over 250 people rated this book so high.
Very out of date. Spoken in a lethargic monotone voice that is only broken by annoying jingles.
Worst thing I've listened to on Audible so far: not recommended.
