Berglund Center for Internet Studies Review by Jeffrey Barlow May 9 2011
By Berglund Center for Internet Studies - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was initially drawn to Preston Gralla's eBay in a Snap because it appears in the "SAMS Teach Yourself" series, which I have found to be consistently useful within a classroom context. The series editors take a great deal of care to strike a balance between user friendliness and true depth. Works in this series will usually provide the novice to any of the many areas they cover a solid start. Gralla's book is no exception.

Gralla takes the reader through the entire range of activities on eBay, with an emphasis upon self-protection, as well as upon getting the best price whether buying or selling. Had I read eBay in a Snap before first using eBay, I would have utilized its services with a great deal more sophistication and confidence, and would not have had to depend on the good character of El Vato, to whom this review is dedicated...
