The eBay Survival Guide is a very well-written and comprehensive book that is sure to please both beginners and expert users alike. This written by Michael Banks, a man with over twenty years of writing skill to his credit, and it shows from page one of his book.
The book is very detailed, yet it is written in such a manner that even beginners can understand and appreciate it. In addition to its easy and quick-to-read pages, it places pictures that coincide with the text in a very thoughtful and clear manner. If you are already consider yourself an avid eBay user, this book offers not only a good review of what you may already know. but also good advice that you probably just didn’t think of.
From page one, this book makes it evident that the author is speaking from practical experience that only comes from someone who has been involved with the online auction process for a good many years. The culmination of many years of practice have led to tips and practices for buyers and sellers to get the very most from their eBay experience and to avoid some of its pitfalls.
Everything from how eBay works, to buying and selling, marketing your products, completing a sale, and how to avoid getting taken by a scam, are covered in these pages. I was particularly impressed with the sections dealing with avoiding the scams and bad practices that you may encounter on eBay. This valuable information alone makes this book worth every penny, and may save you from losing your shirt.
This is a must-have book for anyone who may be thinking about using eBay, and I not only recommend it, but I will keep my own copy handy for future reference.
