Like the curate's Egg,
This review is from: POD People - Beating the Print-On-Demand Stigma (Paperback)
While this book is good in places, I felt rather unfulfilled about what I had learnt after reading it. It's not actually that long a read and there does seem to be a lot of repetition all based around his one print-on-demand successful book. I was also not very impressed that once he has had this one success, he left the POD route and went mainstream!
I guess the one saving factor is the Americanised marketing speak, as his confidence in himself and his work gives many self-marketing tips you can follow, so it does complement what I had learnt from other titles.
But if you want better advice, try the "Print on Demand Publishing Guide" by Morris Rosenthal or "Aiming at Amazon" by Aaron Shephard. I don't know either of these authors, but every time I read those books I find some new points I can apply to my own self-publishing site adpublishing.eu.
