This was a quick read of quirky eBay auctions. This book was part eBay users manual on how to create infamous auctions and part catalogue of some of the strangest items ever put up for sale on the website. It got a bit redundant after a while when it seemed that all these notorious auctions were pulled before the final sale due to controversy or questions of legitimacy or ethics. I'm not an eBay user, but I'm sure anyone who is part of that community will really enjoy this book.

I took this book on in order to complete a Spring Reading Challenge. Let me tell you, I was giggling over the absurd items people sold on E-Bay! It's ridiculous what people will try to do in order to make a quick buck. This book teaches you certain business lessons on how to make the most of your E-Bay auction. Each lesson is supported by an assortment of actual cases, most usually ABSURD items.

- very entertaining collection of actual eBay auctions, including:
- a spare kidney
- the world's longest french fry
- Britney Spears' pregnancy test
- a ghost in a jar
- the meaning of life
- a woman's virginity
- a soul
- etc
- interesting...in a checkout-counter, tabloid newspaper kind of way

This was definitely a funny and interesting book. I mean come on how many books normally talk about a grilled cheese madonna selling for thousands. Or a piece of gum chewed by Brittany Spears selling for thousands. It was definitely interesting.

For pop culture junkies, a little brain candy! And because, really, we are all curious how much the Britney Spears pregnancy test sold for on eBay...

Parts of this book are hugely funny! As an Ebay seller, I found other ideas to expand my business. ;-)
