Well, I'm trying to sell a book called "How's it Hangin', Dude?"

It is like your book, only more casual, and only $2.50.

Do you actually expect people to buy something from you with almost no description at all here and literally no description at Amazon?

See, his plan is if enough people give him money, he won't have to work for the rest of his life. You know, like those ads where you can make X amount of money doing Y at home? Well people don't get rich selling Y at home-- people get rich selling information packets about selling Y at home.

I do not believe that insulting one's potential customers will be a successful marketing strategy. Perhaps I'm wrong and there's a significant number of people who find such behavior appealing.

Although I'm impressed by your obvious command of the English language, a more complete synopsis of your book would be beneficial.

Thank you for your "considerate response" to the Members of MobileRead, as you try to hack your book.

I will now avoid your book with a deep sense of pleasure, as I now realize it is not my kind of "book."

I would be very happy to delete your thread, if that is your wish.

This is Moderating, baby!

Please don't, Don. This is way too entertaining!

Although perhaps the name of the thread could be changed to "How NOT to promote your book."

Hmmm, yeah, maybe an exerpt. I tried downloading the sample from Amazon and it really is not a sample, but just an intro that doesn't give much of a feel for the book.

I did just download "Eat to Live" from Amazon and I do think it could actually change my life if I can follow it.

The file size of this masterpiece is 42 KB. By way of comparison, The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius (a rather short work; the paperback contains only 172 pages) is 358 KB. Then again, one should never confuse quantity with quality. Perhaps Kamal Al Shehabi's words are more valuable or weightier than those of Mr. Aurelius. He proudly points out in the sample I downloaded that his book is "Only around 24 pages!"

Surprisingly, it turns out that English is not his first language.

From the sample:

"I would like also to note that any wisdom mentioned cannot guarantee any future positive outcome ! its up to the reader to take the knowledge and use it wisely . and you will not find an answer of how to get rich ! or so . the answer also is up to you . don't get offended by my opinion and sorry in advance if you going to feel sad about my writings ."

Truly these are inspiring words we would all do well to live by.

Ardeegee, you'll be pleased to learn that your assessment was spot-on! The author states that the main purpose for writing the book was "to spread my thoughts and earn money."

How's your life ? by Kamal Al Shehabi is surely tempting, but I think I'll pass.

Who will dare to speak with their wallet and not with their keyboard and actually read it?

BTW I've just seen the price rising to 5.75 dollars. The demand must be breathtaking if he's doubling the price.
