Interesting... I'll have to check this out when I have the time. I hope you all made sure to reference people to TLS and other online communities in your book as well. :wink:

Not sure how I feel about a shill, but at least you were honest. Best of luck in your book sales.

Why should we pay for a book written by two randos that just rehashes the same crap we read all the time?

If you're not motivated by profits and you just want us to try it, why not make it free?

The sole review on Amazon is pretty good, but yeah, can you at least tell us more about your background?

Exploiting a scam to make money just seems wrong on a few different levels to me.

Of that $2.99, what's your cut for shilling the Kindle edition?

I highly doubt you can make money when the book you're "selling" costs just shy of $3. I'm not sure of the costs of producing a book like this and putting it on Amazon and the bookshelves of B&N, but I'd be pretty surprised if they were (significantly) less than the money these authors might end up making (especially considering the pretty limited prospective audience).

Just my $0.02.

Yeah, that's a pretty clear indication that the quality may be lacking

If they aren't making any money then why should we pay anything? Just make it a free ebook or a blog or something.

To try to attract a wider audience maybe? If it were a blog, only the same people who read TLS and the scam blogs would read it.

But I don't really know, I guess I'm trying to give the OP the benefit of the doubt.

BigZuck thinks everything is a scam. I'd only buy OP's books for the lulz or if I was extremely bored.

Yeah, I'm way too lazy to actually buy the book and read it when I could just lurk TLS. (Not sarcastic, btw.)

This review is clearly written by someone involved with the production. The person who wrote has only written one review, and it just happens to be a 500+ word essay on how great this book is? Sketchy.

I get that there are people on TLS who are likely to be interested in this, but this really isn't a place to sell things even if Amazon/BN are likely taking a huge cut of the $2.99. If you want to give your book away for free, that's a different story.

No ofference to Mr. Cooper, but I doubt this book is going to have anything that we don't already know.

I'm pretty sure GULC and this book are the only two things I have ever called a scam on this site.

I have called many a troll a troll, but that's not the same thing as a scam, troll. :)
