M. Knapp, Amazon reviewer.
Austin Briggs refreshingly delivers upon this promise in a concise, unhindered presentation without any annoying fluff or blustering boasting regrettably too common among many authors trying to sell their how-to book of the day.
I am C, Not X, Amazon reviewer. To be truthful, I have skimmed many books on "how to publish and market new books" and most of them were a waste of time, repeating the same old information. So, I didn't expect much from this book, but was very surprised! This book is wonderful!

The web is constantly shifting, growing, and changing – everything is fleeting.
How do savvy internet marketers cope with all this? They harness the power of the web – and its myriad tools – for their needs. They find unique and personal ways to interact with customers online.

The internet has also given people a lot of choices as to where they can spend their time.
