There was very little I didn’t like, but
there were a couple of things.
Firstly, I hate that every time I open the
pdf I have to type in the password. This is
obviously to stop ebook pirating, but it’s soooooooo annoying.
The second thing I didn’t like was the table of contents - it is not
I really hate that. It means if I want to go to a specific section I either need to do a search, or scroll
through until I locate it.

sections without reading the entire book. What
the publisher should understand is that some people will simply want to bypass some parts of the book. And

anything that’s been missed.

to get you started in this very lucrative area of writing.

Ø It talks about keeping it simple;
alternative words that don’t confuse the reader.
Ø It provides step-by-step information on
brevity, discusses the use of hype, and much more.
Writing Articles for the

informative section, which discusses many aspects of writing articles for the internet. Daws and Barringham have
provided an easy to follow 5-step article writing system, which anyone should be able to

information provided will give you a clear insight of how this could happen.
Selling Your Services via Job
Job sites are
not all they’re cracked up to be, and this section deals indepth with the pros and cons of this type of
site. There is also a comparison of eight
