Useful, but to oriented to author's own brand

Though the information was useful, if the author is going to say "Entrepreneur" so many times in a row, he should really learn to pronounce it...

Anyone Can Start a Podcast!

This book provided the best "how-to" guide to starting the podcast you have wanted to start. John walks you through the process from concept to technology to publishing it on iTunes. He provides resources, guides, communities and tells you how he has successfully launched his podcast. If you busy this book, you also get the amazing video tutorials which are certainly worth the price of the book if not more.

UNBELIEVABLE VALUE!!

If you could sum up Podcast Launch in three words, what would they be?

Value! Value! Value!

Any additional comments?

Wow! John answered all of my questions in less than an hour. To search online for this information would have taken weeks. Plus, John packs his step-by-step guide full of great tips, actionable advice and insights along the way - things I would never have thought of.
Easily worth 10x the purchase price!

Comprehensive, Concise and Very Inspiring

What made the experience of listening to Podcast Launch the most enjoyable?

There are many options for Podcast How-To guides but after listening to "Entrepreneur on Fire" creator John Dumas lay out his step-by-step approach, I felt I made the right choice by selecting his audiobook. At just over an hour, Dumas provides busy listeners with a wealth of hard-won knowledge on this subject in an economical--but impassioned--manner that will leave a reader/listener with a confidence and eagerness to say, "Okay, let's start this thing NOW!" His enthusiasm, humility and expertise--not to mention the authority that comes from backing up everything he says with his own results--make this a very compelling guide to jumping into the unknown and intimidating waters of the podcast. Between the book and his online tutorials, you'll be swimming from the get-go.

What about John Lee Dumas’s performance did you like?

As a frequent Audible.com customer, I've come to appreciate hearing these books through the voices of professional readers, but made an exception in this case because it was fun to hear how excited he is about this topic.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Podcast Launch?

Since he wrote this book with a pronounced economy of words, there was nothing superfluous here. Having said that, he wouldn't have added any of his How-To steps unless each was important, if not critical. Therefore, I'll follow his suggestions to the letter.

Can’t wait to get started

If there’s one thing you’ll take away from this book, it’s the inspiration to start your own podcast and share your knowledge, insight and experience with the world.

You get what you pay for

Very valuable for a beginner. Not very comprehensive if you already know the basics. You definitely get the value of what you pay for it, but don't expect to be the expert after this book.

One long advert and bragathon

I listen to a lot of audiobooks and I’ve never felt compelled to write a review before but this really irritated me , it has next to no useful information on podcasting but has plenty of self advertising , don’t believe me ? Count how many times he tries to send you to his website

I am a huge fan of JLD

This is a clear concise and exciting exploration of the art of Podcasting. In my view EOFire is the best podcast around for entrepreneurs and I will be joining Paradise soon. Don't be remiss listen to this book and watch the free video course.

Podcast Launch Fills In The Gaps To Get Started

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you are interested in how anyone sets up a podcast and publishes it then why not learn from the juggernaut that is John Le Dumas.In less than a year, John has taken an unknown podcast Entrepreneur on Fire to the top of the charts and most importantly kept it there.And keeping it there seems to be the thing that people struggle with. And of course this is where the money is.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Podcast Launch?

The writer goes into basics, but also gives you a few tips that I haven't seen anywhere else such as how to categorise your podcast three times in ITunes.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Definitely the linking from Libsyn to ITunes was most valuable to me.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Follow your passion and find your followers

Amazing actionable content

John I have been a fan for a long time and have watched you expand your business and your generous attitude out into the world with pleasure.

Your book is packed full of goodies I am excited to implement into my own podcast. Now I have an easy to follow plan I feel more at ease with the process.

Thanks for embracing your passion.
