This book seems to have all that is needed to help start up an eBay business - or sell better for those of us who don't actually need or want to run our own eBay business. Very clearly set out. Good value.

Not very good at all.According to the title starting an eBay business one would assume it showed you how to set up the business and an eBay account for selling. Instead of that it just tells you the obvious what to buy and where to sell it, I think of wasted my money again.
