Would I recommend How to Sell Books by the Truckload on Amazon by Penny C. Sansevieri? Successfully selling a book on Amazon is not just as simple as creating great content and listing the book! This book takes some of the mystery out of the self publishing process. While the book is very well written and organized, some of the graphics and screenshot images are a little small and slightly blurry in the print version of the book. They hold a wealth of information--so I was a little disappointed in the fact that they were not easy to read. Overall; however, I learned a lot from How to Sell Books by the Truckload on Amazon by Penny C. Sansevieri and would recommend it to anyone considering embarking on the self publishing journey--or to those seeing sluggish Amazon book sales and successes.
