Title: eBay Hacks: 100 Industrial-Strength Tips and Tools
Publisher: O'Reilly

Not for the seasoned (non-technical) eBayer, but not bad

As a seasoned eBayer that is not interested in setting up eBay search robots or other similar hacks, I found most of the advanced tips offered in this book a bit useless. Yet, having experienced a lot of things as a buyer or as a seller, I can see this book being a very useful guide for people who are new to eBay to avoid pitfalls that are quite common and become a more knowledgeable eBayer with time. Overall, quite good, but more geared toward the beginner to intermediate eBayer audience. If you have bought or sold more than 20-30 items using eBay, who knows: you might find it useful. I know I didn't, for myself.

Great Books

JCCooper did a splendid job on writing Building Websites with Plone. As a newbie to Plone and Zope, I need all the help I can get.
JCC provides very good examples of how Plone works and why it works.
Well written and very well editied unlike other Plone books it is a pleasure to read and study.
