    A long awaited book on how to do ebay legally

    This book is one I have wished someone would write for years. It is a book covering just about every legal and tax issue a person would need to know to buy and sell on eBay, and do it with a clear conscience. It is easy to read, has great examples, and is humorous. I learned so much and feel much more comfortable now becoming a seller in addition to being a buyer. It appeals to a variety of sellers from those wishing to sell a few things occasionally, to those who wish to make it a career.
