With all the LOVE I can muster:

=> The SHORT report is:
Spend The Lousy $10.00 and shut up till you know what you are talking about regardless of the speculation.

IF you don’t like it then… ask for a refund and !@#$% and moan, **** and whine all you like. (Which I don’t think helps anyone.)

=> MY Opinion: (Do with it what you like…)
The eBook is WORTH the lousy $10.00.

= Is it the best book I have read on marketing success?
No, But so what!

= Is it a collection of ‘mostly’ solid, albeit basic tips for everyday success?
YES!

= Is this something new under the sun?
No, again, so what!

= Are there SOME clever, useful tips, suggestions, ideas, tips links?
YES!

Personally, I liked he simplicity of the tips because I KNOW they work because they have worked for ME!

Too I liked that he DID NOT try and say he was some expert or guru… heck WE had to pry the info out of him in the first-place! He ONLY said that he has 87 ideas he was willing to share. Any one of us could share ideas… we do it all the time, but he DID IT!

Again, are the tips and ideas worth the lousy $10.00 bucks for the time he invested in putting this together… absolutely, even if they only REMINDS US (Some could use a good reminder!) of some of the real foundations of our business! – Again, we are talking about a guy who is only sharing a collection if tips and it’s only a lousy $10.00 bucks! Get over yourselves!

Is he a Czar, or does he suggest he IS? No, but it was a simple well gathered list of sound, solid, provable tips and suggestions, and for $10.00 bucks there is much ado about nothing!

Heck there is even a few nice surprises along the way worth MORE than the $10.00 bucks! I mean there’s bound to be in a list of tips, right?

Buy it, don’t buy it… no one cares, just quit whining and berating each other! It’s like a kindergarten playground… geez!

The ONLY tip I think he should have added is:
“It’s Nice to Be Important, But it is More Important to be NICE!”

THAT is a tips we all could use and apply to our success!

I am at your service and in HIS Service,
Deano (going to get the cheese for all the whining) in Reno

I did not think this would go this far. I thought this was a screening for acceptance. Not an expose.

I guess my problem becomes this.

If it is not new, if it not his idea but a collection of others, then what gives anyone the right to put them forth for any reason? Let alone selling them?

See it clutters the literature. It makes things confusing when you publish ideas that are not yours. There is another name for this in other sections of the Café' and I will say only that the practice of publishing someone else's ideas is greatly frowned upon. Greatly.

This is why I personally say experience counts for so much.

Dean is right it is nice to be "reminded" and that is all well and good. BUT it is not good to sell things we did not come up with. That is not good and as a matter of fact it is bad.

It happens WAY too much in our little inbred community and I for one am tired of it. On another thread about a blog someone is trying to help everyone with advice and he forgets to credit Joel Bauer of all people. Seemed to think it was ok just to put the idea out there as his own. He has made the correction, and I admire that, but it is an oversight that never should have happened.

I think these are my main problems. If you have something new, original, or something you are doing different, share please. If you are however rehashing things, or just "reminding" people of others good ideas, you have no reason to be selling anything.

What can I say!! I have read what has been posted on this thread so far and 99% of the people who has replied has ripped josh, come on guys you don’t even no him!!!

Some posts a thread about a book they have written and nicely says ' if you want to buy it, buy or if not don’t bother' and then he gets people ripping and slating him off for not advertising his book well but then some one might post a thread on here about a book then have written and REALLY hype it up and then all you guys would rip the person for hyping it up to much!!

Now I am not getting at everyone one here because SOME people here on the Café I see as respectable people but like I said in another post 'the more I read on this Café the more I see how many people are so ignorant!!

Lay of the guy and like I said YOU don't EVEN KNOW HIM!!!

Weird.

Ok I got to step in here.
do you know the guy? nope
hve you read his book? nope
can you say that the info is someone elses without reading it? nope

has he received a an endorsement from someone who is an expert on marketing?
ummmm yup the dean himself!

has he got more then one testimonial? yup

so, judging the issue from the sidelines like most of you here are doing I say....

well done josg and I hope you have much success in life as you seem to be on the road to great things.

the rest who are closed to new people or ideas I must tell you that the wold is not flat.

if you look at most of the new marketing plans are rehash of older plans so who really has the origional idea.

I personally will take the word of dean as I do know him and respect his views on this subject.

Danny...

He never claimed that the material was his or original. He compiled information from various sources, including the web, and put it in ebook form. To me it would save me time from diggin the stuff up myself. Are you now saying that people who compile data are not respectable?
Seems to me that death is just natures way of telling us to SLOW DOWN!
