Persuasive Online Copywriting: How to Take Your Wo&hellip by Bryan Eisenberg
I bought this book to try and gain more of an understanding on copywriting for the net. My honest opinion is that unless you have a background in professional writing or copywriting, this book won't be much of a help. The book makes references to things like Fraking, Poetic Meter, etc and then gives you a very short paragraph description on what they mean that doesn't give you an understanding of the term, but rather a definition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading, July 5 2004
This book should be required reading for not only web designers, but anyone who owns a website. The book was a bit on the thin side and when I got it I thought it should have been thicker for the money. I was wrong.
This book takes you through every facet of usability and is as applicable to a single person with one site as it is to a multi-level corporation who owns 30 sites. His writing style is fun and humorous and the book is an easy read.

When I first started searching for a DVD to help my daughter learn her ABC's and numbers, I realized there were a lot of products available. But, I came across this DVD and was impressed by the reviews. So, I took a chance and bought it, along with the Best Counting DVD.
While there are many more "exciting" cartoons out now and certainly many with more "bells and whistles" than Busytown, my daughter, age 3, actually loved the DVD's. Not only did she watch them, but it wasn't long before she was singing her ABC's along with kids of Busytown and counting with them as well. She regularly requests to watch the DVD's. I am sure not to let her see them more than once a day so they stay… Read more
