    Don't waste your money...

    What a waste of time. The book masquerades as an Ebay book when in actuality there is very little information on Ebay! It seems to be just a compilation of generic information that Entrepreneur Magazine inserts into all of their 'Start Your Own Business' books. With lines such as "when you decide what kind of business you want to go into" and info on dealing with your stockholders and Human Resource people, they've missed the point of an Ebay based business.

    Fluffy

    This audiobook is for someone who has no clue about business, and is written for someone who wants to invest a lot of capital. Not a lot of new information, but the same recycled trash in every other Ebay book. I think by just using Ebay, you'd learn more than this book has to offer.

    Painfully simple

    This audio recording is for the eBay novice, not for intermediate or advanced sellers. The WARNING comments are good to hear, albeit a little cheesy in their voiceover delivery.

    The most disappointing book ever

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the content was relating to setting up a business in ebay, ie steps to become a power seller in the ebay network, instead the content is advise for setting up a basic business of any nature. I was sucked in by the title.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Entrepreneur Magazine again?

    No, now little credibility

    How could the performance have been better?

    If the content related more to ebay strategies

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment, wasted money and TIME

    Any additional comments?

    I expected more from Entrepreneur Magazine, who I considered to have the contacts to
    produce a such a book, but would have been bettered buying a book by Joe Blow who
    has actually setup a e bay business, which I may have been skeptical to buy.

    How to Start a Business on eBay

    Insightful and realistic book on selling on EBay. This book saves a lot of time, energy and stupid mistakes. Well worth listening too before you sell anything on EBay!
    I liked the direct language and easy to understand suggestions! Not a pie in the sky book, but on that works!
