This book is nothing more than a referral tool for the various business contacts and/or friends of the authors. It is full of articles that don't really reveal any practical information but only attempt to lure the reader into spending more money on additional books and/or websites by exploiting their lack of knowledge and/or greed. I have professional experience in the online marketing and website area and I can categorically state that this book provides zero practical information. If I were to summarise this entire book in one sentence it would read:"If you want to sell things on the internet; use EBay. If you would like to know more information about how you can get rich in five minutes please buy my friends book and sign up to his website and newsletters so he can sell your information and make more money". In fact, you don't need to buy this book now, as if you just read that last paragraph then you have more or less read the entire book. Waste of money.

This book has been an interesting read for those interested in exploring the world of the web sites that create revenue. The book explains the various business models and it could be said that the book comprises of a series of articles by experienced web marketeers as the book calls them. There are a lot of mentions (in terms of promoting products), but thats what the book is about so I can't help but smile that the authors have been that cheeky on this point. A good starting reference book.
