    I am signed up for this guy. (I presume it is a guy and not a gal.) He doles out his summaries with comments through an autoresponder. So far I have received complete The Rich Jerk and Day Job Killer. Each was in 3 parts. Ultimate Wealth Package just started.

    His summaries are good and his comments are common sense based. If you don't have time to read the full ebook or want to see a different perspective on some specific parts, this is a nice little free service.

    Of course the guy is growing an email list, but he is providing value. I have no complaints so far. I like it.

    (Spoken like a real noob, but it's true. :) )

    Based on your positive comments, I'm going to give this a whirl. Anything that can reduce the mountains of ebooks I haven't read is welcome. Even when I do get around to reading them, I'm never sure if everything is outdated already. Oh well, that one nugget you find is usually worth it.

    I signed up too. :D

    So far I've gotten part one of his "Rich Jerk" report. He points out the books shortcomings -- like its outdated info and its suggestion that you lie to get a sale. Bet Kelly Felix ain't too happy with that!

    Wonder who he really is... His tech is UK based according to the WhoIs page.

    I'm in on this. great idea.
    Now I'm gonna beat myself up for not thinking of it first.
    If he's in the same country as his tech, it may be Dan Raine.
    It's the kinda thing he would do.

    And so begins the long thread to figure out who this guy/gal is.
    Hell it may even be Kelly Felix for all we know.

    He's a good guy - given value on other forums too. But he hasn't released anything new for some time. But it's worth signing up for his summaries (all of which basically tell you how crap these things really are!)

    I wouldnt normally signup for something like this since it usually turns into a classic bate and switch, but based on your review i will give it a try

    By weird chance - having not heard anything for months - I've just got a new review. Apart from being very funny this guy kicks the crap out of worthless ebooks. I commend him to the house.
