2.0 out of 5 stars Hastily put together. 30 Oct 2010
I put this down and went in search of something better the second time the book started talking about a concept without explaining it. For example the book starts to talk about USP's as if you should know what these are. A quick google helps but surely this should be explained. A chapter later the book refers to using "proxies" in your business plan without telling you what they are. Add to this the poor sub editing and you get the sense this was a book rushed into publication. Perhaps it gets better but I'm not giving it a third chance.

2.0 out of 5 stars Advert for e-bay 12 Nov 2010
As an e-entrepreneur I can't really recommend this book unless your horizons are limited to opening an e-bay shop using Sage Pay.

So much for the diversity and creativity of the Web

This book is excellent and I would encourage anyone who wants to start an online business to ensure you purchase. I did not realise that there are so many things to think about when starting your own online business.
