While I've loved his other books on self publishing and found them to be invaluable, this felt like a joke. Less than a dozen pages long, it doesn't go into any of the detail his previous books have, which is what made them so useful for a first time self publisher like me. There he took you step by step through all the processes, and it worked. Here, I basically gave up and bought another book, which did the trick.
Up shot - even at the price, I wouldn't recommend it, especially since so much on kindle is so cheap, so it's not even particularly good value considering the market it's in.
I'd recommend 'Self-Printed - the sane person's guide to self publishing' by Catherine Ryan Howard to get you through the frustration of formatting your book for Kindle for the first time. The one tip Shepard gave about indents, which Kindle doesn't deal with well, I found didn't work. So, in all, 2 stars because in the past he's been so good, but only 1 for this publication.
