1.0 out of 5 stars Ebay Motors, the smart way 15 Dec. 2005
By Peter J. Vrouhas - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"eBay Motors, the smart way". Obviously written by a ghost writer, who relates the information second hand. A poorly written book. Lots of useless, impractical dictionay style information. The two "crafty" authors make a feeble attempt at providing actual applicable selling and buying methods, however they fail miserably. On a positive note, a real catchy cover. Numerous blank pages inside, lots of white pages of air space. An obvious attempt at stretching this book out to 290 pages. Frankly, after purchasing and reading, it was a total waste of time and money. This book is a real "dud". Peter Vrouhas, Boynton Beach, FL

5.0 out of 5 stars It got me the exact car I wanted. 1 Feb. 2006
By Norubit - Published on
Without reading this book, I never would have thought to contact the seller and make an offer that would end the auction immediately. As a result, I was able to get the exact car I wanted, and the seller got his cash the next day, without having to worry about possibly flaky bidders. Win-win.

That bit of advice - by itself - was worth five stars. But there's other good stuff in the book too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very limited... 6 Sept. 2005
By Randy Griffith - Published on
I couldn't find a lot of real information for buying and selling on e-bay with this book. The book seems to have more on common sense than on laws and regulations. I admit that I bought the book to learn more about buying and selling as a hobby and I find it more directed at first time buyers or buyers only interested in buying or selling once. He gives no references to state laws or regulations. I found that in order to make the book work I had to find majority of the important information online.

This book is good for people that are looking for an overview of what to look for in cars on e-bay motors. It's an easy read with large print (much how the Dummies books are written). If you're looking for e-bay "know how" experience, it's not here, so if you are new to e-bay, you should buy a separate book.

Overall, I think the book could have been better. It seemed to be a fill in the blanks kind of book when I was looking for answers.

Buyers and sellers alike learn how to use eBay Motors most effectively, including tips on how to handle taxes, insurance, inspections, and lemon cars.
