I found that this book gave me some important principles re maximising amazon search results, title, book description, cover image, keywords, and reviews. However it is not well organized and wastes many pages at the start waffling on to show that you don't need a blog. The author obviously doesn't read his own book as there are numerous inconsistencies. For example his advice re the book description, where he goes to great lengths to emphasize that you should use the full 800 word count, but each of his 4 examples uses less than 200 words!

Some of the information was out of date. For example I wasted a lot of time researching about categories, but when actually uploading my book the list of categories avilable was very limited. It would have been much better if the author took the trouble to talk about categories that are actually available! The ebook version may be better, I don't know. Anyhow, I need a printed book so as to make notes and have a source of quick reference.

Although the author does give lots of useful advice regarding the cover design, he waffles on about the cover image size without giving any real guidance, but when you get to upload on KDP they are quite specific, which is of course too late! He should have given the requirements for a jpeg image, which is how people in the real world specify image size. I found that Height 2,100 x Width 1,400 pixels jpeg works well.

By now there are thousands of people applying the tricks described in this book which does limit the returns.

Amazingly brazen. The author attacks another author - quite rightly - for buying 5 star reviews on Amazon and then suggests something similar himself.

If the review system cannot be trusted, and, having read this book, maybe it should not be, then the least Amazon could do is refuse to stock any books by authors who practice these sleazy tactics.

I cannot praise this book highly enough! It ranks alongside "The Complete Guide to Formatting Books for the Amazon Kindle" by Joshua Tallent as one of the most useful investments I have ever made. I feel sure that once I've tried out some of the techniques described in the book, I'll be proved right in my immediate assessment of the author as a genius! If you're wondering what exactly is in this book then its title and subtitle say it all. I'd already hit the "Buy now" button before I'd even finished reading the description.

I'd gladly have paid much more for the chapters on Search Engine Optimization and html alone. This is no ordinary html guide. This is genuine gold for those of us frustrated by Amazon's instructions not to add any text formatting or tags to book descriptions. Perhaps I've said too much. I refer you to this book's description on here. Is that a photograph in the middle of it?

I read this book in one sitting, only pausing briefly to go back on the internet to try one of his techniques that had me intrigued, and had an exhilarating "Eureka!" moment when I did.

If I was forced to pick faults, it would be for one or two minor formatting glitches and a couple of typos but such trivialities will not prevent me from giving this five stars.

I wanted to show my gratitude to the author by buying some more of his books as soon as I'd finished this one (I am not actually finished with it as it will be a source of reference for some time yet) but I was dumbfounded when I saw some of his other rather specialised titles. My wife would never look at me the same way again if she saw them on my Kindle so I'll just say thank you Michael; I'll remember you when I get my solid gold hat!

I bought a copy of Make a Killing on Kindle in November 2012, a month after self-publishing my first novel, and despite some concerns, which I will get to in a moment, it has since become one of my ‘how to’ bibles.

The Pros:

1) Easy to read, humorous, intelligent, interesting, very motivating and hard to put down. I spent two days glued to this book, it’s that good.

2) For the most part, the author’s blunt advice is excellent. I learnt a great deal and, following his advice to the letter, I put most of it into action, dramatically improving my book’s page, both in description and presentation, and also my book’s formatting, title and cover. I have been delighted by the results, although it does take time and effort. There is no easy, quick fix.

3) The author includes a contact email address for any inquiries, or comments at the end of the book. We’ve exchanged a few emails when I needed his help, and the author responded almost immediately and was friendly and helpful. I was impressed by that because some writers are only interested in making the sale, not in caring about their reader’s post sale comments and queries.

4) The author stresses that his techniques do not guarantee success if you have written a bad book. This is a typical example of his blunt and usually sensible advice. He is also quick to stress, and does so a few times, that the Amanda Hockings of this world are few and far between. This is invaluable advice. Talent isn’t enough, unfortunately. Luck is, however, and that leads me to my next point.

The Cons:

1) Even if you have written a good book, there’s still no guarantee of success, no matter how hard you work. Sorry, but that’s just the way it goes. I expected my sales to pick up dramatically.
