meh. repetitive and self promoting. limited value

it was a really hard slog listening to this book. the first part covers the obvious and sounds like an eBay users guide documenting every button. the meat of the book can be summed up in a few paragraphs which amount to normal prudence. the rest is a repetitive set of get-this or get-that promoting his web site. I'll never get that time back. I didn't really learn anything new.

Too many to list.

Extremely well informed, but didn't mention details such as eBay owns PayPal. Didn't come out with all the information to protect the ethical seller.
