    Well-rounded and thought-provoking examples and tips!

    I really enjoyed this book! It spoke to me on a number of levels about things I suspected as well as those I never considered. Break out your highlighter; there are so many great ideas and tips, you won't want to lose track of any of them. A number of product ideas are presented and expanded upon throughout the book. If you already have a product idea, it's easy to mentally substitute it in place of any of the examples and see how all the pieces fit together. I found the suggestions for tools to use and the lists of "do and don't do" strategies incredibly helpful.

    Chapter 3 alone is worth the price of the book!

    Great book. Lots of examples about the creation and marketing of info products. The section of 40+ examples on delivering the content (chapter 3) alone was worth the price of the book. Would have given 5-stars if there had been a bit more about the creation of the info products themselves. The authors definitely cover the process, but nothing more than very minimal basics. If you like the content and writing style of this book, you would also enjoy "How To Sell When Nobody's Buying: (And How to Sell Even More When They Are)"

    I Also Recommend:

    This Book is Packed Full of Detailed Information

    Let me first say that David Lindahl and Jonathan Rozek, are two leading experts in the field of real estate,finance and marketing online. Combining the genius of these two men into one book is like mixing fire with gasoline. Watch for an explosion of success and knowledge. The detail in explaining step by step what you need to do to make money selling information and products online is incredible.

    Right down to explaining what brand of equipment or website to use is all detailed for you in the book. This is not a book for casual reading. This is a book for someone that wants a game plan. Its not complicated or useless fluff this is information you can put to use right away.

    I don't think you will go wrong investing in this book. I feel you will get back far more than the small price you pay to purchase it. Buy it, use it, and profit from it.
