Big on fluff, short on detail

A schmoozy review of the worlds most successful online businesses, padded out with vanilla motivational cotton wool.

Great if you are entirely new to online business.

I found the book super simple and basic. Explaining that the "cloud" was not an actual cloud but a collective of real computers.

Maybe great if youve never really done anything online or with business. Not so great if you are a millennial and have experienced "the internet" for most of your life.

Miss this one

Found nothing informative after 4 hours of listening. Nothing I wouldn't read in a buzz feed article about how to get rich fast.

I want my money back.

Read this book immediately if you want to build an online business

Oh Bernadette.... ‘Wouldn’t it be great if...’. you narrated every audiobook. (You’ll get that when you’ve read the book!)
Your voice, technique and pace are spot on, making this so easy to listen to and fully complete.
So much valuable information presented in such an easy to understand format.
Truly one of the best business books I’ve ‘read’.

The results are in..

Bernadette’s delivery style reminds me of Scott Pape in his Barefoot Investor audiobook. Short, sharp, friendly and funny.

I am a senior digital marketing professional at a top tier agency in Melbourne and I can vouch for all of the core values and the tools of the trade that B suggests.

Save my time to research

The book listed many steps to build online businesses. Like do this, then do that, if you want to build a website, use this, if you want UI design, use that etc. Would be a good book if I'm actually starting to build my online business. But I was looking for a bit more insights around bright online ideas. I'd say this is a good tool book.

Very useful but don't read it as 'a book'

Bernadette's book has A LOT of very useful (and practical) content, but I think it would be better to read certain chapters (in areas you want help in) rather than reading it cover to cover.
Alternatively, read it cover to cover and then go back to chapters as you wish to tackle an area (e.g. go back to the chapter on SEO) when you you want to review the tips and tricks.
A more modular approach (using it more as a how to guide than an interesting business book) would allow the reader to get more value out of the vast content.
