This book is a fast read (108 pages), it is simple and repetitive.

Some sound ideas, but out of date. It was written in 2008, and the world of internet commerce and affiliate marketing have grown a great deal since then. Still, it's a very short read.

Easy read. Began a little slow but made up for it at the end. Great concepts of why we should be prosumers. I'll definitely use these tips in my business.

Very short on details. It is the repetition of a simple idea but it's not particularly well presented. The book meanders

This book gives the opportunity for a common man to think like an entrepreneur. Not only that, it gives the confidence that everybody can build a business on his own. If you want to know what e commerce is about and how can it change the phase of business in the current economy, You should go through this book.

Very great about explaining what a great idea it is to buy from your own store and become a pro-sumer. It is a little dry though.

Recommends it for: No one.
A friend recommended this to me, but it's quite an empty book; all bark no bite. I can hardly even classify this as an economics book.
