Needed a proofreader and a better narrator.

I did my best to get through this book, but as a long time teacher of college composition classes, I was way too distracted by the grammatical and agreement errors. The information was fine, but it felt like enough to fill a concise magazine article, dragged out to book length. The narrator had an exaggerated way of speaking, like an actor in a high school play, that somehow didn't match up with the context or show any understanding of the content. It happened frequently enough to make me twitchy. (Seriously... you multiply it "ex" two?) This reads less like the thoughts of a person with hands on experience and more like somebody trying to hit a hot topic to sell a book. Most of what is covered here you could get in a google search and a tutorial on line.

Good for beginners

This book has a lot of general knowledge that is helpful to beginners. There is a lot of repetition which had me scratching my head. I’ve been reading articles online about getting started with Etsy so I already had a working knowledge on the subject but did learn a few new things.

Pathetic unless you’re a 70 year old American woman called Marge

Contains such gems as “You need to register then create a store” “You need to avoid selling stock you don’t actually have yet” “The Internet is a wonderful place that connects people” I kept listening in the hope something good would come up, but nope.
