    Good ideas and useful resource websites given

    Book is written with tips numbered instead of paragrapghs. I liked that format. It is a revised version, but used words like 'vhs'. That said, the author listed websites for resources. I checked a couple and they were active sites. I took away a few ideas from the book so i think it was worth the price of purchase. The ebook downloaded to my nook with no problem.
