No Background In Copywriting? Find Another Book.

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. I was for lack of a better term, lost by the time I was 60 pages in.
Maybe if you do have a background in copywriting, this book will be quite useful in helping you understand how to adapt regular copywriting to the web. But, if not, you won't get much of an "education" but rather a "how to adapt" approach that isn't very useful to someone who hasn't had a some form of formal education on the topic. I did give this book two stars because there was a "nugget" here or there that anyone could have gleaned, but overall I was disappointed by the book.

Not a book for novice!

If you just start to learn AE, don't ever think to buy this book first, this may an excellent book for some one who already know about AE...So buy this book as a "improve".

it sucked

Well this book was a total rip off i had been taking a VB class at my high school (9th grade) and thought that this book would help me advance because in the class the teacher was just making us do some dumb applications that served no purpose and i couldn't contain myself to create advanced programs on my own that could connect through IP and by port to another computer. So i was low on money and the lady at the store told me this book was very good and that many people bought it and that it was better than the teach yourself VB in 21 days, i had to buy fast because they were closing and so i just took it when i saw it at home it was a total ripp off it doesnt teach u anything and goes as far as showing you how use some of the controls which is fairly easy, the rest of it is just good for reference like when u forget a command line and cant remember what it is. I would not recommend this book to anyone because even to the newbie at VB it will be totaly confusing and unuseful and u wouldnt even need it for reference on commands because u can look up the commands on VB, i guess u get what u pay for, this book is worthless and a total waste of money go buy something more expensive that teaches at ur knowledge level rather then just put what each thing does without any code excercises or anything that can make u think of how u can use this like this book does.....[...]
