I have been using ebay for years and there was much I did not know. Book is very easy to read

But that's not saying a lot. In my opinion all the books about eBay are poor, and this one is only a little better. In the first place, it seemed to me too expensive for a pulp-paper book with no color, not to mention few useful illustrations. And I found its off-handedness and humor distracting. And it seemed the author, or authors, were more intent on raving enthusiastically about eBay than in trying to inform the reader about how to use it. I just wanted some basic, how-to information, but it didn't seem to want to tell me that kind of thing. And I noticed it didn't tell me how to negotiate the eBay signing-up process without inadvertently inviting eBay and others to besiege me with promotional email and phone calls. (Don't get me wrong; I think eBay is great. But like a lot of oufits out there, you gotta watch 'em.) I tried to give the book a chance--tried to get it to just tell me how to buy something and how to sell something--but it frustrated me so much that I quit and--threw it away. (Well, maybe I am a dummy.) So while I'm waiting for a better book to come along, I'm learning how to use eBay from my wife and eBay's Help screens. But I should admit something: I don't like any of those Dummies books. I don't think they're 'for the rest of us'; I think they're just chummily written in order to look that way. And while I may indeed be a dummy about some things, I resent a book flat-out calling me one, and in garish black and yellow at that. I was a dummy to buy this book. But that's me; others may find this book to be the best thing they've ever stumbled across, and it is the most recent book on eBay, which is a plus.

I bought this book so that I could learn how to sell on eBay. It has provided me with much more information that the eBay site has, and I now have the confidence to get started as a seller.

eBay is a lot of fun and this book makes learning about eBay a lot of fun as well. Docked one star simply because I knew most of the basics before reading the book. Nonetheless, Marsha's tips and insight did help me win some auctions and get better prices on things I was selling.

So straight forward. Started with 2006 edition got a little side tracked & returning to brush. Plus one for small business too.

This book gave me several interesting tips. Did you know that you can search completed auctions? An ebay store will allow you to pay listing fees of only $0.02 This book is a gold mine for eBay entrepeneurs.

This book is about a fifth or six reading level. I can understand it, but I'm only ten.
