I must preface this by saying how much I hate the Dummies books. I hate the bright, ugly, yellow color; I hate how flimsy it is, and I hate the general layout of the book. That being said, I enjoyed this book.

While I've had a podcast for the last year and a half ( I still found this book extremely helpful. I wish I had gotten it earlier because things might have gone more smoother than they did. I blame my former co-host for that.

Even though most technology books
This was a great starter book for someone looking to begin a podcast. It contains all of the necessary basics with a little bit extra, so I would not recommend it for people with podcasting experience because it is so elementary.

I look forward to now reading more books on the subject before launching my own book-related podcast on iTunes. I will use this book to walk me through the beginning steps and go from there!

Very good inroduction for anyone wanting to start a podcast. The authors give you the basics, but also delve into enough technical detail to be of great value. They address equipment, software, posting feeds, creating an audience, marketing, making money and a whole lot more. Check out the companion podcasts on iTunes for further information. There is also an expert podcasting book which I will tackle next.

It was a pretty good book but came up short once I set up with a server. I got error messages about some type of byte stream. This happened on two different servers. I'm not an IT guy so I had no idea how to fix this. The book didn't warn me of this potential problem. I'm assuming that since I got it twice on two different servers that it's probably a common error.
This book was a good introductory book about podcasting and what it takes to set up your own podcast. It covered the technology end of things, as well as other issues like getting listeners, copyright issues when using music on your podcast, other good podcasts to listen to, and important people in the world of podcasting.

Recommends it for: People who want to start a podcast.
This book has been an invaluable resource to me. It is clearly and concisely written with lots of illustrations and diagrams to further explain key concepts.

Highly recommended.
This is a good book for people looking to get into podcasting but by the time I got to it I was already past most of what this book discussed.
I'm 5% done with Podcasting For Dummies: Just getting started. Can't believe I forgot this was out there. Guess I'm living up to the demographic.
Excellent, clearly written and loads of useful content. It turned out to be exactly what I needed.
Excellent starter info for anyone who is thinking of or beginning a podcast.
