After reading this book , I felt very disappointed. The book is too simple and not worth reading it at all. It waste my time!

This book was a very disappointing read for me personally. I bought this book to combine my existing business skills with e-business skills. This book, though, should probably be re-named 'Internet Riches for senior citizen housewives who have 0 business experience at all.' The vocabulary and style of this book oversimplifies the nature of the topics, making the book a very frustrating read.

Title is gimmicky but info inside is top notch Jan. 27 2007
By Gen of North Coast Gardening - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Over the last few years, I have seen so many of my favorite bloggers and new websites become popular enough that their owners have quit their day jobs, and I always wondered how they got their ideas or how they got started. I want what they have, but I had no idea how to get there from here.

Fox's book was just the kick in the pants I needed. I am very familiar with the computer and the internet, but am low on techy skills, inspiration, and knowledge about how to build an online business.

This book was awesome because he details what others have done to achieve success, the steps one must take and the work involved in each kind of online business, the different types of business and what business model is most suitable each kind.

Then, in addition to all that, he provides the questions and inspiration needed to jog our own thoughts about what we might be passionate or knowledgeable enough about to start a business, and has such perfect memory and inspiration jogs that I went from not having any ideas to having too many to reasonably act on immediately.

He focuses on all the different kinds of e-business, so you don't need an item to sell or a particular idea in mind to get started with this book. Rather, this book is perfect for those who have some interest in owning their own online business but need to know more about what exactly it entails and how one would make a business like this profitable.

I tried the Dummies book on this topic and was sorely disappointed - it felt like a big advertisement through the whole book, and didn't really give me any of the tools I needed to get going or to inspire me with a new idea to act on. I'd recommend Fox's book instead, as the first book to read if you are thinking of starting an online business.

Good basic information on making money online June 17 2008
By Dan Hersam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'd never heard of Scott Fox before, but from what I read in the book, he's been quite successful at making money online. He's worked with some big names so it appears he knows what he's talking about.

The book spends most of the time covering the nuts and bolts of choosing a subject area (niche), determining its feasibility to make money, creating a web site and making the big bucks. He uses lots of case studies of people who are currently making money online, which is very useful.

I finished the book optimistic, but still a bit vague on the next action step. I'm in a bit of analysis paralysis, which he actually discusses briefly in the book. It's where you spend so much time planning and preparing to make money and learning to avoid all the pitfalls that you never take action. The book has given me some more ideas on how to make money, and I plan to refer back to it in the future as I take action.

If you're unfamiliar with how people make money online, it's a great book to help you learn. If you already know about the general methods of making money like drop shipping, selling on eBay, product development, affiliate marketing, digital information products (aka eBooks), then you probably won't find anything new.

Not recommended if you have any experience May 23 2009
By Roberto Riccio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was very disappointing for me.

After reading some Amazon's reviews about Internet Riches, I decided to purchase it. I don't know why, but most of them say great things about this book.

To sum up the "secret" content...

1. You don't need a lot of money to start your internet business.

2. There are 3 types of e-businesses: service, product and niche ones.

3. Some very basic content about finding a domain, a web host, and a designer.

4. And finally the book says you should use e-mail marketing and AdWords pay-per-click.

That's it. Those are the "money-making secrets of online millionares". Wow, huh.

If you've read anything about making money online you should already know those things. There's much better material online on blogs and on free pdf reports. Save your money for something else.

I know people will say "oh, but that's a book for beginners". Alright, but even if you haven't read anything about online businesses before, there are definitely LOTS of better products for beginners out there.

Better than you'd think from the title! Really! Oct. 9 2006
By Robert J. Donahue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Give this one a chance in spite of the title. It really does break down the different types of web sites (and hybrid-types) that make money. And after such "what do I do on the net?" fundamentals, it does add simple, inexpensive nuts and bolts to get ideas up to speed almost immediately. Examples throughout, as well as specific resource recommendations. Good for confidence, as it reveals that internet money-making is neither rocket science nor spam hype.

Highly Recommend! Sept. 5 2007
By PJ's Library - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I found this book to be one of the best books out there on this subject. (And I've read numerous books and ebooks on this subject.) Not only is this book inspirational, Scott gives concrete examples of successful internet businesses out there. He also asks good probing questions to get you to think about how you can create a niche for yourself online. His book is informative and helpful for anyone who wants to seriously build a business for themselves online. I wish I would have bought this book sooner. Well worth the purchase!
