I bought this because I'd been selling my own personal surplus books on ebay and barely making a profit after postage and eBay/PayPal charges were taken into account.

My initial hopes of 'secret' tricks to sell at higher prices and ways to avoid exorbitant hosting charges were dashed, yes. And, I was less than impressed with chapter upon chapter of 'fluff' - half a dozen different ways of telling you this is a good idea prefixed by "... shortly I'm going to tell you how to...." - that kept me from the real meat of the book.

This book articulates what most of us already know but we're too busy procrastinating over... you've got to do legwork. You've got to get off you bum and go out and obtain the right books to sell. You've got to know which books are in demand. You need to do some reasearch and you need to invest your time if you're going to do it well. Once you commit to do that, you can settle in to a routine, of sorts, and possibly invest just an hour a day of your time, as Ms Fussell suggests.

I found her motivational spiel a little patronising and it did make ploughing through the book a slog. But, she said things I needed to hear. She certainly gives a very clear, step-by-step guide to selling on Amazon AND she's invested a good deal of her own time listing a small bookfull of some of those books that will indeed fetch big profit - if you can just find them!

Personally, I've found her insights into the process of using Amazon useful and her booklet of high value books interesting (more because it's let me understand how to 'read' Amazon than having a list of books that there's little likelihood I'm going to stumble across in numbers). Having spent good money on these books and CD's has also pushed me to ACT...

I can't believe people fall for these get rich quick schemes! The book is full of half truths and is very misleading. Just remember kids, if it looks too good to be true, it most likely isn't true, especially if you have to hand over money!

It is relatively easy to set up as an amazon seller, but to be able to state that the average profit per book is £5 is a joke, the reality is that the average profit is usually under a £1 unless you have discovered a secret tunnel into the basement off your local bookstore!

Also claiming you can make 15 grand a year from one wall size bookshelf must mean you have a bookshelf on the great wall of china!

The advice if applied may be able to bring in £15k worth of sales, but your expenses would probably be close to £12k on postage and packaging! And you'd need to spend more than a few hours a day on it to make anywhere near this sort of money as profit!

Plenty of muppets do seem to have bought this book, but I sure hope they haven't invested lots of money in stock it would be interesting to here if any are making anything near that kind of profit!

I bought this book last week and have, in less than 7 days, sold 15 of my own books from my bookshelf with another 36 listed which will easily cover the cost of the package and bring in a profit. Two old books were each worth more than £30. If I did nothing else it would have been a worthwhile exercise, but I am now going to start on my husband's old books and then my father's and then off to the charity shops. Great idea, Sharon.

While it's true that you can sell your old books on Amazon, it's almost certain that you'll get back much less than you paid for them. In fact, the vast majority of books are available on Amazon for just 1p, even if they originally cost tens of £££s.

And while it's true that you can buy books from car boots or charity shops for pennies or for just a pound or two and then resell them on Amazon for a profit, it remains a fact that many books are worth only 1p on Amazon and it's a fact that those that sell for good money on Amazon are not found cheaply elsewhere sufficiently frequently to make this business worth your while.

The figures given as examples in Sharon Fussell's book might be accurate in Cloud Cuckoo Land but they seem ludicrously optimistic for anyone trying this business on planet Earth.

Please remember that Amazon takes a sizable commission from each sale, thus a book costing £2 and selling for £10 does NOT equal £8 profit for you. On average, it comes to about £5 profit minus your costs (fuel, etc) and, even if you live in a town with 10 charity shops, I doubt you'll find a profitable buy every day, and quite possibly not even ever week.

Avoid this scheme.

Despite the other two scathing reviews I would like to add, this book which I purchased gave me an invaluable insight into selling books and other items on Amazon. I quickly covered my costs and have gone on to built a small library. YES THE FIGURES ARE OUT, but if you seriously think you can ever obtain the information you want by anyone giving it to you and not by finding out yourself then you are sorely misled.

This book provides a good insight into how to get started selling on Amazon and it comes with practical advice for those of us who wanted to start selling on the internet, but did not have the confidence.

This book has since lead me to start my own Ebay business selling other items and I am now sourcing my first niche product from Hong Kong and looking to start an Ebay shop.

Let them without sin cast the first stone .....
