I received an special offer for this book via Clickbank. Book was “free” as long as I’d pay postage. A very good deal, I though.
This is a good book. Not great, but worth checking out. I give credit to the author for covering so many aspects of online business in one book. The problem is, there isn’t enough space for everything he wants to cover– at least in detail. It’s kind of like being at a buffet, with a lot of choices, but only being able to take a tiny bite. You get an idea of what is available, but don’t walk away totally satisfied.
Luckily, I have been studying online marketing for a while. When I read this stuff, I got what he was saying. If this is your first book about online maketing though, or you’re looking to “get rich quick”, you may end up frustrated as some of the aspects here will likely be too complicated for you to understand since you’ll have to “fill in the blanks” yourself. For a beginner, I think something like Laptop Lifestyle – How to Quit Your Job and Make a Good Living on the Internet (Volume 1 – Quick Start Guide to Making Money Online) is a better option, since it moves a little slower and gives step-by-step lists of what you can do to either sell your own products online or make money using affiliate programs.
The best part about this book is that it gives detailed case studies of successful businesses and how they are making money online. There are a lot of ways to make money online and this will get you thinking about how you can find something that works for you.

The ultimate goal of the book is to make the author richer.
The content is not solid as described by other 5-star reviewers. If you have done internet marketing for more than 1 year, you can probably write a better book with more solid content. The contents are not updated. e.g. QuikDrop is a mentioned as an eBay drop shipper. If you check and you can find QuikDrop has ceased doing eBay drop shipping more than two years before the book is published. What I can say is that the book is a stuffing of old information.
Don’t put much faith to get rich by many clicks mentioned in this book. One thing for sure is that the author is getting richer if you buy this book.
This book appears to be nothing but an infomercial for his website. Whenever he starts to tell a good story or give good tips. before finishing he gives a link to his website. And what good are weblinks on a Kindle? I can’t imagine what the print edition is like. Do you press a link on a page with your finger and a magical screen appears before you? He’s also obsessed with this UPC like codes called QRs which appear throughout the book. I have no access to these codes and thought they took up space and were worthless and interrupted the story.
But more importantly, nearly everything in this book is either pure common sense or easily available elsewhere on the net for free. I really question if some of these reviews aren’t submitted by his PR team. Really, a nine page review?
I just don’t trust his numbers. He says in one paragraph that the founder of Zappo’s is worth $700M after the sale to Amazon. A few pages later he says that it sold for $1B, then later he says Jeff Bezos paid over a billion. Which one is it?
He also goes on to say that he purchased a blinds company in Houston. He said their website outsold both of their retail locations. The Kindle version says the website is [...]. I assume that is a typo for nobrainsBlinds.com. Nonetheless, he said the website business was more successful because it had no overhead. So, I guess the place just ran itself with Japanese Robots and Disney cartoon characters. No phone lines, no internet, no shipping, no labor, no benefits?
I swear this guy will be on late night TV ads in no time.
This is just a story of a man who got lucky buying a domain name and selling it for a fortune. Now, he just plays with his money. But, I think for him to suggest that the average person could recreate what he or many of the others mentioned in the book have done, is just ludicrous.
I regretfully hoped for more.
